Gulab Jamun is a very popular sweet made in India and relished by people of all age groups. Here, is my tried and tested traditional recipe for Gulab Jamun.

Steps

FOR THE GULAB JAMUN:

1
Done
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl. Use your fingers to mix the ghee properly into Khoya, Paneer and Maida.
2
Done
Knead it into a soft dough by adding warm milk. Remember, not to over-knead the dough or else khoya will start releasing its fat. We just need a soft dough. Let it rest for 15-20 minutes.
3
Done
Now make balls of lemon size. See to it that they are soft balls with no cracks anywhere.
4
Done
Heat Ghee in a Kadai. On medium heat, fry these balls. Don’t turn them too much or else they may crack. While tossing them in the ghee, be very gentle.
5
Done
Ensure that the heat is not high. They need to be fried on a medium heat Ghee and not smoking hot Ghee.
6
Done
Once they are brown in color, remove them.

FOR THE SUGAR SYRUP:

1
Done
Combine all the ingredients except lemon juice in a cooking pot which is wide.
2
Done
Bring it boil. Once it is boiling, add the lemon juice. Lower the heat and let this sugar syrup cook for another 7-8 minutes unless it becomes sticky.
3
Done
Now, let this sugar syrup become warm.

HOW TO PROCEED:

1
Done
When both the Gulab Jamun and the Sugar Syrup are warm, drop in the Gulab Jamun into the sugar syrup. Let it soak for an hour.
2
Done
You can garnish them with pistachios and Almond Silvers.
