How to Make Quick Gulab Jamun

  • For Syrup:
  • Bring the water to a boil in a two quart sauce pan.
  • Remove from the heat, add sugar and stir until the syrup temperature is 220.5 degrees F.
  • Remove from heat. Add saffron and rosewater. Stir.
  • Keep the syrup warm over very low heat.
  • For the Jamun:
  • Mix the powdered milk and flour.
  • Add ghee and mix until all lumps disappear.
  • Slowly pour in the milk and mix thoroughly.
  • Knead until the dough becomes very smooth.
  • Form the dough into smooth oblong rolls 2.5 inch long and 1.5 inch thick, air-dry for 10 mins.
  • Heat the ghee/oil in a shallow pan.
  • It should be hot but not smoking, approximately 300.5 degrees F.
  • Carefully slide in 2 or 3 jamuns and fry until golden brown. Turn occasionally. When done, remove from the ghee, drain and gently place in the warm syrup.
  • When all the jamuns are finished, place them in a shallow dish and allow them to soak in the syrup for 12 hours.
  • To avoid waiting 12 hours, simmer slowly for 15 to 20 mins.
