For this recipe, I have used milk mawa powder that I got from the local Indian store. However the regular milk powder can also be used for preparing this recipe. Milk mawa powder and milk powder are almost the same but the milk mawa powder is rich, has higher fat content and the texture is different too.

As I have mentioned earlier, I prepare gulab jamun for all the special occasions at home.  My brother is a pilot and he stays in Papua New Guinea for his work. His birthday was couple of days ago. Though I wish to be with him that day, I could not be with him this year. So I prepared this as a virtual treat to celebrate his birthday. Hope I will be with him to celebrate his next birthday.

  2. Then add milk little by little and keep kneading to form a smooth and soft dough. It should neither be too hard or sticky.
  3. Let the dough rest for 30 minutes.
  4. In the meantime, prepare the sugar syrup. In a pan, add sugar and water, mix well and boil it for few minutes. First the solution will be cloudy when they become clear, turn off the heat. Optionally, You can add crushed cardamom and boil for couple of minutes then turn off the heat. You can also add rose essence after turning off the heat.
  5. When the sugar solution is getting ready, you can divide the dough, grease your hands and gently roll them into equal sized balls. Make sure there are no cracks in the balls.
  6. Heat oil and deep fry the dough balls in medium heat till they turn reddish brown. Keep turning the jamuns, so that they cook evenly through out and get a uniform colour.
  7. Remove from oil, drain excess oil if any in paper towel. Repeat the process for the rest of the jamuns.
  8. Add the jamuns into the prepared warm sugar syrup and let it soak for atleast 2 hours. Then serve it.

Notes :

  • You can use regular milk powder, if you do not have milk mawa powder.
  • While kneading the dough, add milk little by little and keep kneading to form smooth dough. It should neither be sticky nor hard.
  • While rolling the dough into balls, take care to roll them gently without any cracks. If pressed hard while rolling the jamuns will become hard. Also if there are cracks, the jamuns will break.
  • The temperature of the oil used for frying the jamuns is very important. If it is too hot, then the jamuns will become brown soon while it is still uncooked on the inside.
  • Deep fry the jamun balls and add them immediately to the warm sugar syrup. Do all the preparations side by side. Both the jamun balls and the syrup has to be warm for the jamuns to soak properly.
  • You can also garnish with pistachios, almonds, shredded coconut or saffron as per your choice.
