Gulab Jamun - My 200th Post

                Hooray....today i am posting my 200th recipe...its really unbelievable since my blog age is 145 days only...I started writing my first blog in 2009 which was completely about my life, my love n my family...but later b'coz of many reason i stopped and in recently Jan 2011 ...started a Food Blog, which was my long time desire n wish...started with my cooking knowledge with full passion...My energy level wasn't reduced..its all because of my supportive n encouraging friends, family n You all my Fellow  Bloggers. I should thank You all my blogger friends, Subscribers and all my visitors.Thank you so much...do keep supporting and visit my space n share your thoughts..I should also thank my lovable H n my adorable kids for their help n encouragement...they never get bored or tired to taste my newly tried recipes...

 Now Coming to this Gulab Jamun- for the first time i tried Jamuns from the scratch...Yep this is my first try and it was very successful n we all enjoyed it a lot...home made jamuns are fresh,tasty n so good than the Instant Mix...Gulab Jamuns are my favorite sweet n my H also love my Jamuns very much..he won't stop swallowing this soft, delicious yummy balls...Actually i planned to try nut stuffed jamuns n also have some sliced almonds(blanched) with coconut mix ready....but because of my kids, they changed my plan n ended with usual Plain Gulab Jamuns...For recipe i referred from the web..most of the recipes are with carnation milk powder but i don't have that in hand..so i tried with milk mawa powder..

  1. Milk Mawa Powder    1 cup
  2. All Purpose flour   1/2 cup
  3. Baking soda   1/2 tsp
  4. Unsalted Butter   2 tbsp(melted or room temp)
  5. Milk    to make dough
  6. Oil for deep frying
  7. Sugar   2 cups
  8. Water   2 cups
  9. Cardamom   3-4 pods(crushed)
  • In a mixing bowl add milk powder,APF,baking soda mix well and add melted butter, crumble the flour and using milk  make a smooth dough...knead the dough  for 2-3 minutes and  then cover  n rest the dough for 20-30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile prepare the sugar syrup...in a vessel add sugar n water stir well...allow  it to boil and add the crushed cardamoms n cook for few minutes,then turn off the stove.
  • Now divide the resting dough to desired shape n size.
  • Heat oil in a wok for deep frying, when it gets hot gently drop the balls in to the hot oil ,fry in medium heat and keep rotating or shaking the balls (for even frying ) until  turn brown on all the sides.
  • Once it get fried, remove from the oil and drain it in paper towel and then drop the fried jamuns in the warm sugar syrup and allow to soak in the sugar syrup for 2-3 hrs.
  • Then enjoy the delicious Gulab Jamuns  warm or chilled.
