Step by Step Gulab Jamun Recipe and Instructions :

Procedure to make Syrup :

Take 1-cup of sugar, 3 green cardamom pods, 1.5 cups of water, and 1-2 drops of lemon juice in a deep pan.

Heat it over medium flame and cook until it reaches half-string consistency or turns a little sticky while stirring it occasionally in between. It will take around 5-10 minutes over medium flame to reach the required consistency. Turn off the flame when sugar syrup is ready.

Procedure to make Dough:

Mix all ingredients required for dough except Egg

Knead it with beaten egg, use as much egg as required

This will be sticky, knead the dough well and refrigerate it and it will become firm

Make balls out of the dough

Heat the oil and fry the dough balls over low heat until it turns golden

Take all out and put them in hot syrup and turn off the flame. Let it soak the syrup for at least half an hour.

Garnish with pistachios and serve cold or warm. You may also decorate it with edible silver leaf.


Precautions :

Make sure to use good quality milk powder, as it plays a vital role in making.

Also, don’t replace the baking powder with baking soda. Using soda can create chances to break while frying.

For more, fry on low flame else gulab jamun will remain raw from inside.
