Indian Cooking Challenge - Gulab Jamun :)



Jamoon
Decoration: Used red paper roses that I recently made. :)


Gulab Jamun!!! the name makes me melt for it :)

If you give me a choice of pizza and dosa, I would choose dosa.
If you give me a choice of cake or ice cream, I would easily say ice cream.
If you give me a choice of Juice or coffee, I would jump for juice.

But give me any choice with Jamun, I would royally go for GULAB JAMUN. I would not mind to miss anything for this tasty treat.

It is one of the best sweets that I would always relish. Guess this would be a common say of all. :)

Here I am at the last moment for the India Cooking Challenge - Gulab Jamun :)


Jamoon3


Ingredients:

Khova - 1 cup (250 gms)
Maida - 1/2 cup (all purpose flour)
Baking soda - a pinch
Oil/Ghee - for frying

Sugar syrup:

Sugar - 1 cup
Water - 1 cup



Jamoon1



Method:

Mix khoya, maida and baking soda together pouring in just a little water to it. Kneed gently and keep it closed for 10 min.

Now roll small balls from the dough that you mixed. The shape can be a perfect round or oval. Make it the way you like it :)

For the sugar syrup, heat together water and sugar for a while. When it starts bubbling up, simmer the stove and let it go on for 10 min until one thread consistency is reached. Switch off and keep it aside.

Now deep fry the jamuns on low heat till it gets cooked evenly. Remove and drain the excess oil. Add the jamuns in sugar syrup and let them get soaked well for 3 to 4 hours.

Serve them warm or cold. I love them anyways and I know you too will love it :)

Discovered your appetizing blog today.
Crepes are popular in many places, same thing for Gulab Jamun as I found out.

I took the liberty of using one of your pictures of this 'sweet treat' as an illustration for my story November 27 besides Black Friday is Eid-ul-Adha on 'Serge the Concierge'.

Take care
