gulab jamun

Last night I feasted on tasty little Indian treats called gulab jamun. Here's a recipe for them that I found at
1 cup whole dried milk (mawa)
2 tbsp refined flour
2 tbsp
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cardamom powder
3 cups water
ghee as required
1. Mix sugar, water and cardamom powder and cook until the syrup becomes thick.
2. Mix mawa, refined flour, baking powder and water and make soft, smooth dough (Water should be just sufficient for kneading a smooth dough).
3. Make small balls of equal size. Be sure that the balls ("jamuns") are smooth and no crack develops. Keep aside.
4. Heat ghee in a kadhai / deep frying pan.
5. Deep fry the balls over medium heat until golden brown.
6. Put the balls in hot syrup and keep for 10-12 minutes.
7. Gulab Jamuns are ready. Warm before serving.


  1. gulab jamun is my favourite indian dessert. My sister once ate 10 of them in one sitting - she was living in India and had just broken up with her boyfriend. She said she felt much better afterwards.

  2. thanks for posting the recipe. nice pics that want me to try this terrific dessert.
