GULAB JAMUN


HMMMMMMMM……The sound of gulab jamun itself makes my mouth water.This is one amazing sweet created my man.I am sure many of u will agree with me.Making this sweet from scratch is as easy as we eat it.Here goes the recipe.

INGREDIENTS

Mawa/Khoya-1 1/2 cups
All purpose flour/maida-3 tbsp
baking soda-a pinch
cardamam pdr-1tsp
Milk-3-4 tbsp as needed
ghee/oil for frying


FOR SYRUP

Sugar-1 cup
water-2 cup


METHOD

Grate mawa/khoya and keep aside.Add flour and half of the cardamam pdr to grated mawa.Adding little milk at a time mix the dough .Make sure u dont add lot of milk.The quantity should be just right enough to make it a soft dough.Adding toomuch wont hold the dough properly and too less will crack the dough and break while frying.after making the dough let it rest for half an hr.In the menatime make the syrup by boiling the sugar and the water.Add rest of the cardamam pdr into the syrup.
Make small balls of the dough of equal sizes,approximately lemon ball size.Heat the ghee/oil on medium and while frying turn the heat to low otherwise inside of the jamun will be undercooked.Ones the jamuns are fried put it in the syrup.Let the jamuns soak in the syrup for atleast an hr before serving.
Serve it warm or cold.Hope u enjoy!!!
