Gulab Jamun Recipe(with Khoya) |Diwali Special Recipes

Gulab Jamun is one such recipe which makes us drool, just by hearing its name. This is the easiest recipe which we can prepare for any celebrations. Until now I have tried Gulab Jamun with ready made mix. This is the first time I am trying it with Khoya. It came out perfectly, though I was not completely satisfied with the pictures. I will be trying the milk powder version soon.

Khoya /Kova (unsweetened) - 1 Cup(Crumbled)
Maida/All purpose flour - 3 tblsp 
Baking Soda (Cooking Soda) - a pinch 
Oil/ Ghee - to deep fry  
For the Sugar Syrup:
Sugar - 1 & 1/2 Cups 
Water - 1 & 1/2 Cups 
Cardamom - 1/2 tsp(Powdered) 
1. In a mixing bowl, crumble the Khoya. Along with this add the Maida and cooking soda. Mix well and form a smooth dough. The Khoya which I used was moist, so I have not added any water while forming the dough. If required, you can add little water. Make it into small sized balls. Meanwhile in a pan add the sugar and water, let the sugar gets dissolved by stirring.

2. After the sugar gets dissolved, allow it to boil for about 10 mins. Add cardamom and switch off the flame. Meanwhile fry the Jamuns in very low flame. 

3. Turn it in between to cook evenly on all sides. Drain it in tissue paper and immediately add it to the hot syrup.
Serve it either warm or chilled.

Points to remember:
  • You can fry the jamuns completely in ghee/oil or half ghee and half oil.
  • I have done half the above mentioned quantity and got about 17 small Jamuns.
  • The balls expand while frying and soaking in syrup, so make your preferred ball sizes  keeping this in mind.
  • Fry it in very low flame, if not it browns faster leaving the inside portion uncooked.
Warm Regards,
