Gulab Jamun - October ICC

Here comes the Indian Cooking Challenge for the Month of October Gulab Jamun...Hmmm.. mouth watering sweet indeed.
This sweet is a favourite of the whole house hold, especially dad. He loves sweet in any form . Making it from scratch was a whole lot fun and I enjoyed it completely.

Ingredients

Khova – 11/2 cups
Maida – 1 cup
Sugar – 3 cups (if you want excess syrup i.e floating jamuns increase by a cup)
Water – 1 cup (increase if you’re increasing sugar)
Cooking Soda – 3 pinches
Cardamom – 4 pods
Saffron leaves – a few
Oil – 1 cup (for deep frying)

Method

1. Combine sugar and water in a flat bottomed broad pan and simmer on a low heat until sugar dissolves. Add cardamom powder and saffron leaves and remove from fire.
2. Knead khova, maida and soda and quickly shape into balls.
3. Heat oil on a medium flame. Fry the jamuns till golden brown over a low to medium flame, keeping oil temperature uniform. Oil should not smoke.
4. Drain the jamuns and soak in the warm sugar syrup.
