How to make The Best Gulab Jamun

Gulab Jamuns are sweet delicious yummy balls that just savour in your mouth when you bite into them. Especially when there home made. In India or Pakistan you can find lots of gulab jamuns all over the place but when your over seas, or in the States it can be hard to find these yummy treats.. So making them your self is just a wonderful feeling, and there just made with some simple ingredients in no time...Your Guest will be shocked.. Stop buying the Gulab Jamuns at the shop! and make your own fresh Jamuns at home today..

Ingredients: makes about  10-12  jamuns
Prep time 10 min
cook time 10 min
Recipe Source Karachi Foods

First prepare the sheera (syrup)
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
3 whole cardamons or 1 tsp cardamon powder
tiny pinch of orange color, and some strands of saffron

Method for the syrup sheera
Pour all the ingredient into a sause pan and cook for 10-15 min until syrup starts to become thick( do not refrigerate just put to aside at room temp.)

Gulab jamun
1 cup milk powder (Nestle, Nido or any brand)
1tbs semolina (sooji)
2 tbs white all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg beaten lightly
oil as needed for frying

Combine Flour, semolina, milk powder and mix with hand
Now add beaten egg mix with your hand, (if the flour is too thick add a couple tsp of milk and knead well)
If the flour is too sticky, put some oil on your palms and start making the balls, they should be about 1/2 inch size
Fry on low heat on both sides until Jamuns get nice and golden brown, (moving constantly otherwise they will burn or get too dark) when they are done throw them into the sheera syrup  immediately for about 10 min. So they can soak up the syrup (make sure the syrup is not to hot otherwise it will shrink the balls)
Now garnish with coconut,( put your shredded coconut in a small bowl and take one jamun at a time from the  sheera and dip and roll in the coconut. Or you can use  almonds, or top with your favorite ice cream.
