Gulab Jamun

Hi Friends ...
Kuch Meetha Ho Jaye ......Diwali is coming and something in sweets.....Sounds yummy.
My friend Pallavi made Gulab Jamuns for this month SNC EVENT, but I made the same recipe because of Diwali.....
I tried them for the second time, first time had a horrible experience but this time they came out perfect , Thanks Pallavi for sharing the recipe !!!


Ingredients:
1 cup Milk Powder (I used Amulya)
4 tbsp Ghee
1 1/2 tbsp Semolina (sooji)
3 tbsp  Maida
A pinch of baking powder
3 tbsp Cream 
Oil for frying
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Water
A pinch of Cardamom powder



Method:
  1. Mix milk powder, maida, semolina and baking powder in a large bowl.
  2. Add the ghee and mix well. Now add the cream, first add only 2 tbsp, and make soft dough out of it. Add another tbsp if you feel it is dry.
  3. Knead it into soft dough.
  4. Cover with a kitchen towel for 20-30 min.
  5. To make sugar syrup. Mix sugar and water in a large pan and bring it to boil. Keep stirring in between till sugar dissolves completely.
  6. Add the cardamom powder, mix well. Remove from fire and keep it aside.
  7. Make small balls out of the dough. 
  8. Heat oil in a kadhai, to check take small amount of dough and put it in the oil. If it comes up immediately then you oil is ready for frying.
  9. Drop the balls in the oil and fry till golden brown in colour. Keep stirring in between to get an even colour.
  10. Once done, remove from fire and put them in sugar syrup.
  11. Keep them in sugar syrup for 30-40 mins.
  12. Once they are lukewarm, Serve them.



Note: If you are storing them in fridge for further use, then make sure to warm them before serving.
