One of the most popular dessert in countries of the Indian Subcontinent. - Gulaab Jamun


Nido milk powder ½ cup
Yogurt 2 tbsp (beaten)
Baking soda ¼
Ghee 1 tbsp
Maida 2 tbsp
Cardamon powder ¼ tsp

For Sugar Syrup:

Sugar 2 cups

Ghee for frying
Pistachios for garnishing
Almonds for garnishing

  1. Add sugar, water and crushed cardamon pods in a pan and stir it then let it cook on medium flame for 5-10 minutes. Do not overcook or it will caramelize the sugar.
  2. Make the dough by combining milk powder, yogurt, baking soda, ghee, maida and cardamon powder. 
  3. Divide the dough into 15-18 small portions. 
  4. Make small balls by gently rolling each portion between your palms into a smooth ball.
  5. Heat ghee/oil in a wok. Slip in the ball into the hot oil from the side of the pan, one by one. 
  6. They will sink to the bottom of the wok. Do not stir. Keep the flame on medium-low. 
  7. The Gulab Jamuns would rise slowly to the top if the temperature is just right. 
  8. Now gently and constantly agitated to ensure even browning on all sides.
  9. Make sure the temperature of the oil is not too hot, else the gulab jumuns will break or cook too quickly.
