Day 6 - Blogging Marathon - Gulab Jamun with Icecream

Here I am in the penultimate day of the Blogging Marathon. This post is about the sweet I prepared for my nephew P who was here on vacation. I have heard from his mother, my cousin sister in law that he likes anything that is made in a restuarant style. So that is when this idea of Gualb jamun with Ice cream hit me.
My nephew loved it so did his cousin who came with him. He has gone back to Australia, but from what I hear from my SIL is that he still keeps talking about Gulab Jamun and Ice cream.

This is what I used to make Gulab Jamun
  • 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)

How I made it

  • 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.
  • Knead khova, maida and soda and quickly shape into elongated balls.
  • 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.
  • Drain the jamuns and soak in the warm sugar syrup.

PS : I adopted the recipe we used for ICC in November 2010

Serve the jamuns with Ice cream, not only children adults will also love it.
