Gulab Jamun

Gulab Jamun is one of the favorite Indian desserts. They are golden brown balls in flavored sugar syrup. They are served warm or at room temperature. 

They are also available ready-made here in the US either in Indian grocery stores in cans or if you are in the major US cities you can go to the sweetmeat shops and buy them fresh. You also, get them in the famous GITS (brand) easy to make packets. 

 

1 cup Carnation Milk Powder
1/2 cup Bisquick - Pancake mix 
(Instead of Bisquick Pancake mix, use 1/2 cup all purpose flour and 1/2 tsp baking soda)
2 tablespoons butter -melted
Whole milk just enough to make the dough
 
For the Sugar Syrup
2 cups Sugar
1 cup water 
Oil for frying

Make the dough by combining the milk powder, Bisquick, butter. Add just enough whole milk to make a medium-hard dough. Divide the dough into 18-20 portions. Make balls by gently rolling each portion between your palms into a smooth ball. Place the balls on a plate. Cover with a damp yet dry kitchen towel. 

Heat the oil on high and then lower the heat to medium. Slip in the balls into the hot oil from the side of the pan, one by one. They will sink to the bottom of the pan, but do not try to move them. Instead, gently shake the pan to keep the balls from browning on just one side. After about 5 mins, the balls will rise to the surface. The Gulab Jamuns should rise slowly to the top if the temperature is just right. Now they must be gently and constantly agitated to ensure even browning on all sides. 

If the temperature of the oil is too high then the gulab jamuns will  tend to break. So adjust the temperature to ensure that the gulab jamuns do not break or cook too quickly. 

The balls must be fried very slowly under medium temperatures. This will ensure complete cooking from inside and even browning. 

Sugar Syrup

The syrup should be made earlier and kept warm. To make the hot sugar syrup add mix the 2 cups of sugar to 1 cup of water. Add 4-5 cardamom pods, slightly crushed and a few strands of "Kesar".  Mix with a spoon and then heat at medium heat for 5-10 minutes until sugar is all dissolved in water. Do not overheat, that will caramelize the sugar. 

Transfer this hot syrup into a Corning serving dish. Keep warm on stove. Add the fried gulab jamuns directly into the warm syrup. Leave gulab jamuns in syrup overnight for best results. They can be served warm or at room temperature.
