Gulab jamun is an Indian sweet dessert, which is deep-fried in oil or ghee and then soaked in sugar syrup. it is made from milk solids or khoya, which is assorted with all-purpose flour then kneaded, shaped, and fried.

Gulab jamun is the queen of Indian desserts, but I can’t name one dessert because all of them are the best.? there are many variations in shape and flavor in gulab jamun.

When festivals arrive in India, gulab jamun is on the top list and every festival in India is incomplete without it, especially Diwali.

Milk powder works very well with many Indian sweets and it does the job of mawa or khoya. Instant besan peda and coconut ladoo can also be prepared with milk powder.

Why purchase gulab jamun mix from the store when you can prepare it at home trust me you don’t need to do any hard work to make gulab jamun mix powder.

But the hard work begins with kneading, frying, and making sugar syrup. In my opinion, it is cheap to make premix at home and you can ensure the cleanliness as well.

5. Meanwhile make chasni, add sugar and water in a pot, and cook it on medium flame then add saffron strands, cardamom powder, and lemon juice.

6. Make sure sugar is dissolved and boil it until chasni or sugar syrup turns sticky. It should not be even one string consistency, it just needs to be sticky which you can check by rubbing the sugar Syrup between the forefinger and thumb.

If the sugar syrup has 1 string consistency or more then gulab jamun will not absorb the syrup and it may become hard as well.

Tips for perfect milk powder gulab jamun:

Gulab jamun dough – The dough should be soft, don’t over-knead the dough as it may lead to hard Gulab Jamun.

The dough would be sticky but that’s not the problem, preparing dough would be a little bit messy it may stick to your fingers, but when it is kneaded everything will come together and you will get a perfect soft dough.

Jamun balls– prepare a small lemon-sized ball from the dough, the ball should not be too big as it has baking soda in it so the dough ball will automatically rise while frying.

Fryingfry the jamun at low flame in ghee or oil, stir the Jamun very gently heat is distributed evenly, and frying on the low flame will also prevent them from cracking.

Don’t stir the jamun frequently at the start the jamun is very soft so stir it gently to avoid cracks.

Sugar syrup/chasni- Add the mentioned ratio of sugar and water to a pot and when the sugar dissolves add lemon juice and cardamom. Bring the sugar syrup to boil and that’s it.

This does not require any hard work. Sugar syrup should be thin but a little bit sticky.
