Milk Powder Gulab Jamun

Last week started with a great news! Yes I call it as a great news because I have won a Family Dishes contest sponsored by Good Housekeeping India, a leading Life style Magazine of India. My recipe has been published in their June Issue with my name and photo! Huhh! I am really very happy and top of that I have received a cutlery set for winning this contest along with others. I have already shared this news on Motions and Emotions FB page, but here I want to share once again with my near and dear readers.

Now while sharing this good news should I let my reader go with an empty hand??

Absolutely no! Here we are celebrating the happiness with a sweet treat. I am sharing an easy recipe of milk powder Gulab Jamun which is very easy for beginners. One of my friend (Paramita Di) recently prepared this and when I asked her the recipe, she advised me to follow the recipe from Madhuras Recipe. 

Milk Powder Gulab Jamun

For Sugar Syrup
Sugar - 11/2 cup
Water - 1 cup
 Lemon Juice - 1 teaspoon

For Gulab Jamuns

Non fat Milk Powder - 1/2 cup
Clarified Butter / Desi Ghee - 1 tablespoon
Fine Semolina (Suji) - 1 tablespoon
Maida - 1 tablespoon
Milk - 2 tablespoon + 2 tsp if needed
Baking Soda - 1/4 teaspoon
Lemon Juice - 1 teaspoon
Refined oil for deep frying


For Making Sugar Syrup

1. Take sugar in to a  pan and add water into it. After mixing the sugar, put the pan on gas and bring it to boil.
2.  Once syrup comes to a boil, reduce the flame and simmer for 5 to 8 minutes. After that turn off the heat.
3. No need of getting one thread consistency syrup.
4.  Add lemon juice and mix, this will prevent the syrup to be caramelized after cooling down.
For making Jamuns

1.  Take a milk powder in a bowl and add baking soda, semolina, flour/maida and mix well.

2.  Add ghee and lemon juice to the mixture and mix until it becomes crumbly.

3. It's time to add milk and make a soft dough. Cover the dough to rest for 5 minutes.
4. During resting time, the dough will absorb the moisture. 
5. Divide the dough into small balls. Above quantity gives 8 to 10 jamuns.

6. Heat oil in a wok and deep fry prepared dumplings until they turn dark golden color.

7. After frying immediately soak the jamuns into the sugar syrup and allow them to soak in syrup for an hour.

Avoid overcooking sugar syrup, otherwise gulab jamun will not get soaked in the syrup.
Fine variety of semolina should be used.
If you find that the jamun dough has dried out, add little extra milk to make it moist.
The jamun dough has to bemoist only, when you roll them in to balls.
