A traditional dessert that is ready in a jiffy.
Gulab Jamuns, as u all know are made with so much of efforts with paneer & khoya before; but nowadays all make these instantly with milk powders. I used to make them without egg usually, but recently I got this recipe from fb (with egg) from Fatii Naz.. This tastes better than those made without egg. Anyways I've given both the recipes here.. but these in the pictures are made with egg.
Heat sugar and one cup of water in a pan and cook to make a syrup. Add lemon juice to clarify the syrup. Remove the scum. Transfer the syrup into a serving dish. You should make thin syrup for instant jamuns. Let it boil for 1 or 2 minutes.
Heat sufficient ghee/oil in a kadai.
Take milk powder, refined flour, soda bicarbonate, green cardamom powder and four teaspoons of ghee in a bowl and mix.
Add sufficient water to the milk powder mixture and knead into a soft dough. Divide the dough into small balls. Deep fry these in the heated ghee on low heat.The inner portion will remain uncooked if it is not fried in low heat.
When the gulab jamuns are golden brown, drain them and add to the hot syrup. Serve hot or at room temperature.
