Recipe For Homemade Gulab Jamuns
Unsweetened Khoya-2 cups
Maida-1 cup
Baking Powder- half tsp
Oil to deep fry

For Syrup
Sugar-1 and half cups
Water-half cup
Rose essence-1 tsp or
Cardamom powder-half tsp

Always grate the khoya before using it...So,the moisture could absorb the flour very well.
*Usually,I dont add water or milk,So the jamuns really stays for longer period 

Add  maida,pinch of baking powder to grated khoya and knead them(with ur fingers) to soft dough.
*Dont over pressure the dough,the jamun will break while frying

Roll them into balls or desired sizes

Mix all the ingredients for the sugar syrup.Boil it till sticky consistency

Meanwhile make the balls at similar sizes,so it is fried evenly

In low flame,fry the jamuns till the bubbling of oil stops
*It takes longer time to cook than readymade ones and of course darkens easily,So cook them in low flame

Pour the hot sugar syrup to the jamuns and soak them for 2-3 minutes
*It wont take much time for soaking like readymade mix ,and doesnt turn soggy in syrup

The jamuns are ready to attack.....

The homemade jamuns are light,yummiest ones ,ever to relish.I am sure,you are not going to run after readymade jamun mix,if u try this recipe......Enjoy

Happy Diwali
