How to Make Easy Gulab Jamun

  • Mix milk powder with the pancake mix, using the heavy cream to make a soft dough.
  • Use the dough to make about 40 balls.
  • Gently roll the dough between your palms, using a little ghee, to make the balls.
  • Take enough oil to deep fry (first heat on high and then reduce flame to medium) and gently slip the balls into the oil of the frying pan.
  • The balls should be fried very slowly in medium flame until they become golden in colour.
  • Mix sugar to water and heat on medium flame until sugar gets dissolved. Keep the flame very low.
  • Add the fried jamun directly into the syrup.
  • Boil the syrup for just 2 or 3 minutes in medium flame.
  • Add the cardamom powder.
