In our house gulab jamuns are usually made from a readymade packets..We do make jamuns often,but somewhere I read that one jamun contains 100 calories...I know that I cannot stop with one jamun, If we make it at home,I will surely eat 10+...I think that is a little less amount only..So we stopped making it at home..
And I found a good excuse too...Guys Its Diwali..Set aside your guilty conscious and let eat some good stuffs..
This is the one which I often crave for..Even in mid nights...My mouth is watering as I write this post..
You all know that I am not a big fan of sweets,but this one is a exception..In fact I nearly emptied the bowl all by myself..
I am giving you the step by step recipe with pictures...
This recipe goes to Blogging Marathan-Day 6 for the theme “Indian Festival Food with Step by Step pictures”..
Recipe Source:Divya’s Recipes
Milk-1 litre+2 tblspn
Flour- ¾ cup or as needed
Baking Soda-1 tsp
Water as needed
Cardamom pods / Yelakai-4
Heat milk in a wide mouth vessel and bring it to boil...Let it boil for 30-40 mins until it gets thick..Stir often so that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the vessel..
The khoya for this should not be so thick..Make it little bit thinner..
Now let the khoya cool down completely..
Now add in baking soda and mix well..Add in flour and make into a very soft dough.Add a few spoons of milk if needed..
Cover it with a damp cloth and set aside for 20-30 mins..
Now knead the dough once and divide into equal portions..Make small balls out of it and set aside..
Heat oil on a very low flame for deep frying..Add in the balls and fry on a low heat for 15 mins or until the jamuns gets nice colour...
In the mean time while the jamuns are frying make sugar syrup..
Take sugar in a kadai..Cover it with water and bring it to boil..
Add in cardamom pods and mix well..Let it boil for around 5 mins until it reaches one string consistency...(ie)If you take the spoon out of the sugar syrup,the last drop falling from the spoon forms a string..
Take the fried jamuns and immerse it in the sugar syrup...
Let it soak for 2 to 3 hours before serving.
Serve it with icecream or as it is..
