Gulab Jamun

Prep: 15 mins

Cook: 20 mins

Deep Frying

Light and delicious dough balls, soaked in a fragrant sugar syrup

For the dough

  • 100 grams milk powder, unsweetened

  • 60 grams plain flour

  • ½ tsp baking powder

  • 2 tbsp ghee / clarified butter

  • 100ml milk (adjust quantity as needed)

For the syrup

  • 400 grams sugar

  • 470 ml water

  • 5 cardamom pods

  • 1 tsp lemon juice

  • 1 tsp rose water (optional)

  • Ghee for frying

  • Pistachios (optional topping)

Preparation

  • Make the syrup by adding the cardamom pods, sugar, water and lemon juice in a small pan and heating gently until the sugar has dissolved. Once ready, transfer it into a bowl to rest.

  • Combine the milk powder, flour and baking powder with the ghee or clarified butter and mix well. Add the milk and form a dough. Once combined, cover with a damp tea towel and rest for 10 minutes or until the dough has relaxed.

  • Form small shaped balls in your hands, trying to keep them as even in size as possible.

Cooking

  • Heat enough ghee in a pan so the galub jaman balls will be submerged. Once the oil is hot but not smoking, add the balls a few at a time and fry until golden brown, keeping an eye on them at all times to make sure they don't burn.

  • Once they are golden brown, add the fried dough balls straight into the syrup and allow them to soak for 15-20 minutes.

  • To serve, top with pistachios and enjoy.
