Readymade Gulab Jamun

One of my favorite or my household s is Gulab Jamun any day or any time. I usually prefer to make it from scratch as it gives you immense satisfaction. But during Diwali or at times when you need to make a sweet in a short span of time. This is when Ready made Gulab Jamun mix comes handy. I always have this in my pantry, you never know when the situation will come to make them

One pack of mix will yield nearly 25 - 30 jamuns. the number is good enough to cater to a family of 6 people. Very simple to make but yummy to taste just in the matter of an hour s time. 


Gulab Jamun mix - 1 packet
Sugar - 3 cups
Water - 3 cups
Cardamom and green camphor - for flavoring  


Empty the contents into a wide mouth vessel
Add milk little by little and make a dough out of the mix
Set the dough aside for about 20 mins time 
Then make small balls out of the dough.
You can also make a mixture of nuts and stuff them into the balls
Heat oil in a wide skillet and add the balls in batches of 5 or 6 
Remove them when they turn Golden Brown onto a tissue paper.
On parallel you need to prepare the sugar syrup.
Take water and sugar in the ratio of 1:1 and make it boil in a pan
Add the cardamom and camphor to add flavor to the sugar syrup
When you get one string consistency, stop the flame.
Add the fried Gulab jamun in the syrup as and when you deep fry them
Leave it aside for about an hours time. 
Yummy, slurpy Gulab jamun ready to eat
You can serve it with ice cream or eat it as such

I have not made gulab jamun in a while and I use to make it with store bought mix. I considered making it for the bm but ruled it out. Your jamuns looks delicious though!
