How about making those ah-so-yummy gulab jamuns at home? The best ones are soft, slurpy and sweet, free of lumps. All it needs is a bit of deft work to serve the goody to family and friends.


For jamuns:

1½ cups milk powder

¼ cup maida

1 tablespoon rawa

½ teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

2 tablespoon milk

1 tablespoon ghee

1 lime extract

For syrup:

1 cup sugar

1 cup water

½ teaspoon cardamom powdered

2 pinch pepper powder


Mix together milk powder, maida, baking powder, baking soda, rawa, ghee and extract of half a lime

Add in warm milk and make it into a soft dough

Keep aside for ten minutes

Roll into small balls

Boil sugar and water and as it warms up add the cardamom and pepper powder and allow it to boil over a low flame

Mix in the extract of half a lime

Fry the balls in boiling oil till they turn golden nut brown

Dip the brown balls into the sugar solution

Keep the dish closed for 15 minutes

Note: See that there are no hollow gaps inside as you make the balls

Fry gently, lest they should crumble
