How to make it

  • Syrup See Photo
  • In a large pan, add water, sugar, and ground cardamom seeds and bring it to a boil.
  • Let the syrup boil for a minute then remove it from the heat.
  • Stir the syrup until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Set the syrup aside.
  • Gulab Jamun
  • In a bowl, mix milk powder, flour and baking soda. See Photo
  • Add the butter and mix well.
  • Now add milk to make soft dough. The dough will be sticky.
  • Let the dough sit for a few minutes. Milk powder will absorb the extra milk. If the dough is dry, add more milk, as the dough should be soft. See Photo
  • Knead the dough. Grease your hands with butter before working with the dough. See Photo
  • Divide the dough into about 20 equal portions and roll them into round balls.
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium heat. The frying pan should have at least 1 ½ inch of oil. To test if the oil is the right temperature, place a small piece of dough into the oil; it should take a minute to rise. If dough rises faster, oil is too hot; if dough just sits without rising, oil is not hot enough. See Photo
  • Place the gulab Jamuns in the frying pan. Note: remember gulab jamuns will expand in double the volume, so give them enough space.
  • It should take about 7 minutes to fry the gulab jamuns. While frying keep rolling the gulab jamuns around so they are evenly browned. Fry until the gulab jamuns become dark brown.
  • Let the gulab jamuns cool off for a few minutes before placing in the hot syrup.
