It’s symbolically said by lighting their homes with diyas( a small lamps).People make sweets and savories to share with their loved ones.Kids enjoy the most cracking fires.Diwali is incomplete without fire crackers.

Gulab Jamun – An Incredible Dessert

Gulab Jamun can be said as Indian version of doughnut hole.Small balls made of flour &milk powder is deep fried and soaked in sugar syrup.

Though during festivals we make lots of varieties of desserts,this dish takes a special place.It’s so easy and versatile dessert that I haven’t seen a person who dislikes it.My son who usually doesn’t have a sweet tooth loves this that he keeps on asking me to make this.

How did I make Gulab Jamun

I used store bought MTR Gulab Jamun Mix to make this dish.It’s so easy to prepare.First step is to make sugar syrup.The packet says to use 1 kg of sugar with equal quantity of water to make syrup.But I used 700 gms of sugar with equal quantity of water.It was perfect for us.You can adjust sugar level as per your requirements.

you can make any shapes you want,,round or oblong

Always keep in mind to deep fry in medium flame.If not the inner dough will not be cooked.Soak these jamuns for at least 8 hours.But soaking overnight will give best results.

METHOD

  • Start by making sugar syrup. In a Pot take sugar and water.
  • Boil it till the sugar dissolves.Add Crushed Cardamom to sugar syrup if adding.
  • Switch of the flame.Do not cover the pot as it creates condensation which dilutes the sugar syrup.
  • In a wide plate pour the contents out of the MTR Mix packet.
  • Break any lumps if any. Add milk little by little and combine to a single mass.
  • It should not be sticky and dry.If it’s dry add little more milk.If it’s sticky add little more flour.
  • Make small balls without cracks from the combined mass of dough. Cover it in a plate or cloth.If not the dough will become dry.
  • Heat oil to deep fry in a pan.
  • When the oil is hot enough add the balls slowly in batches.
  • Cook in medium flame.Turn the jamuns gently using a slotted spoon.Try not to break it.
  • When it is dark golden brown remove using slotted spoon and drop in sugar syrup.
  • Repeat till all the jamuns are fried.
  • Let it soak for minimum 8 hours to overnight.
  • Serve.

 

NOTES

  1. When adding milk,be careful not to add more.Knead simultaneously while adding milk.
  2. If the balls made dry just dip your hands in milk and roll the ball again.
  3. The balls can be sticky a little but not very sticky.
  4. Don’t forget to cover the balls when waiting for oil to heat.
  5. Fry the jamuns in medium flame.
  6. You can add saffron strands instead of crushed cardamom.
  7. Instead of milk you can use water too.
