Bread Dry Gulab Jamun

Bread dry gulab jamun is an easy to prepare sweet dish which I tried recently. Actually I was craving for angoori jamun and it was drizzling throughout the day. So I was lazy to go out and buy it from the shop. So I suppressed my sweet craving with chocolate in the refrigerator but it was in my mind to prepare a quick fix jamun at home.


So I took the help of our famous search engine (Google obviously) and checked many recipes. Finally, I found bread dry gulab jamun which is an easy to prepare recipe with available ingredients at home. Then I decided to prepare these beautiful bread dry gulab jamun and I have adapted the recipe from here.

We often have leftover breads in our pantry. Four to five bread slices are enough to make a small batch. Though the recipe is an easy one, you have to be little bit patient while frying the balls. It is important to fry the balls under low flame so that they are evenly fried on all the sides and at the same time they are not burnt.

So what to do eat when you crave for sweets when you don't have stock of that particular sweet. You can try these bread dry gulab jamun if you have stock of some leftover milk or sandwich bread slices.

Bread Dry Gulab Jamun
Ingredients
Bread Slices - 5
Milk - 1/4 cup
Maida - 1 tablespoon
Cooking Soda - 1/8 teaspoon
Powdered Sugar - 3 to 4 tablespoon
Refined oil - 3 to 4 cups (as required for deep frying)

Sugar syrup

Sugar - 1/3 cup
Water - 1/3 cup
Saffron Strands - few
Cardamom Powder - 1/8 teaspoon

Procedure

1. Take sugar and water in a pan. Heat it up until the sugar dissolves completely. Boil it for sometime, when it becomes little sticky switch off gas and add cardamom powder and saffron strands. Mix it and keep aside.
2. Trim the crust (brown edges) of the bread and soak each of the bread into the milk and squeeze out the excess milk. 
3. Take all these breads into a blender and pulse it for few seconds. It helps to get a smooth dough.
4. Now take out these bread mixture into a bowl and add maida, cooking soda and mix them well to get a sticky dough. Do not knead for longer period.
5. Prepare small round shaped balls from the dough. Avoid pressing too much while making the balls.
6. Heat oil in a wok and deep fry the balls under low flame to avoid burning.


7. Once they are fried golden brown from all the sides, take them out in a tissue paper.
8. Later dip the fried balls into the warm sugar syrup and allow them to soak the syrup for at least 1 hour.
9. Later take out each ball and roll them on powdered sugar and bread dry gulab jamuns are ready.
