When it comes to sweets, the first name that comes to mind is Gulab Jamun. Although buying gulab jamuns from the market may seem convenient, store-bought ones often do not have the taste of homemade ones. So, the best option is to make delicious gulab jamun at home, even if you don't have khoya (mawa). Still you can make Gulab Jamun.

Ingredients for Gulab Jamun:

  • Milk powder – 2 cups
  • Flour – 3 tbsp
  • Milk (full cream) – 1/2 cup
  • Ghee - as required
  • Baking powder – a pinch

Ingredients for syrup:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1.5 cups water
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom powder
  • a pinch of saffron

How to make Gulab Jamun at home:

  • First of all, heat ghee in a pan on medium flame.
  • When the ghee is hot, add milk to it and heat it.
  • Turn off the flame when the milk becomes lukewarm.
  • Mix milk powder and flour in a mixing bowl. Mix them well.
  • Add lukewarm milk to the dry mixture and knead a soft dough.
  • Shape the dough into small Gulab Jamun balls.
  • Heat ghee in a deep pan or kadhai for frying. Keep the flame medium.
  • Fry the Gulab Jamun balls until they become light golden. Remember to fry them on medium flame to ensure that they get cooked well.
  • When the gulab jamuns turn evenly brown, remove them from the ghee and place them on a plate covered with a paper towel to drain excess ghee.

Prepare sugar syrup:

To make the syrup, combine the sugar and water in a separate saucepan.

Add cardamom powder and saffron threads to the syrup for taste.

Boil the sugar syrup until it reaches the consistency of one string. You can test this by taking a drop of syrup between your thumb and forefinger; It should form a single thread.

Put gulab jamun in syrup:

Immediately put the fried gulab jamuns in sugar syrup.

Let the gulab jamuns soak in the syrup for at least an hour so that they absorb the sweetness.

Your homemade Gulab Jamun is ready to serve! Enjoy these delicious sweets.
