Easy Gulab Jamun Recipe | Gulab Jamun Using Milk Powder
Gulab Jamun !! A easy dessert recipe using milk powder.
Milk Powder – 1 cup (I used Amul)
Maida/Plain Flour – 1/3 cup
Baking Soda – pinch
Yogurt – 2 tbsp
Salt - pinch
Oil / Ghee – 1 tsp
Few Almond slices for garnishing
Sugar – 1 cup
Cardamom – 3 pods
Rose Essence – 2 drops (optional)
Water – 1/2 cup
In a pan, add water, sugar, cardamom and mix well. Bring this to boil until you get syrup consistency.
Now, add rose essence and mix well. Keep aside.
For the dough:
In a wide bowl, add milk powder, flour and soda. Mix well.
Add oil or ghee and 1 tbsp of yogurt.
Knead until you get a soft and sticky mixture. If the mixture is dry or crumbly add another tablespoon of yogurt and knead.
Now, pinch small part of dough and roll between you palms to make ball. Make sure that there are no cracks. You can grease your palms with little ghee to avoid the dough from sticking to your hands.
Place a pan on the flame and pour oil to deep fry the balls.
When the oil is heated up, carefully slide the rolled balls. Make sure you fry them on low flame. At first the jamuns will sink at the bottom then slowing pop up. Turn each ball using a slotted spoon frequently for even frying.
Remove them on tissue paper to drain excess oil.
Once the balls cool down, add them to the prepared sugar syrup and set aside for an hour. Make sure that the syrup is slightly warm when you all the balls.
Serve sprinkling some sliced almonds or other nuts.
Yummy and Delicious Gulab Jamuns are ready to serve. Enjoy!!
