Gulab jamun Fried Syrup based

Gulab jamun is one of the most famous Indian sweet and is very popular in most of India as well as the neighbouring countries like Pakistan and Bangladesh. Gulab Jamun is said to originated in Bengal but it has a huge fan following in North India where hot gulab jamuns sell as quickly as hot cakes in the western countries. Hot Gulab Jamuns are a delicacy during the winters.

Gulab Jamun is basically milky dough balls that are fried and dipped in sugar syrup. The dough balls are made from wheat dough mixed with condensed milk or khoya. It is then rolled into balls and deep fried in oil. These are then dipped in a thick sugar syrup flavored with cardamom and rode water.

Though the basic method of preparation of gulab jamun is not very difficult, it takes a little practice to make the dough balls. The dough and milk combination has to be just right and so is the amount of frying. Too much dough may make the balls too brittle and they will crumble into pieces. Frying also has to be just right.

To make Gulab Jamun you will need 3 cups sugar, 2 cups water, gulabjal or rose water, 5 cardamom, 2 cups carnation milk powder, 1cup bisquick, 2 cups water, 3 tbsp butter, 3 tbsp yogurt, 1/2 cup milk, cooking oil.

Mix the carnation milk powder, bisquick, yogurt, and melted butter together and make a smooth dough. Now divide the dough into a number of equal sized balls making sure that there are no cracks in the balls. NOw heat some oil in a frying pan deep fry the balls till they are golden brown. Remove excess oil. NOw make a sugar syrup by boiling the water and sugar together. Now dip all the balls in the syrup and let them soak it. Soon the balls will become soft and swell up, almost double the original size. Gulab jamuns are ready. You can serve cold by removing from the syrup and chilling them or serve hot by heating them with the syrup.
