Gulab Jamun: Gulab Jamun is a traditional dessert that is popular in South Asian such as Pakistan and India. In Pakistani Culture these tasty treats are often made around events such as Marriages and Eid. However these Gulab Jamun can be made for any occasion. The recipe is given below:

For Dough: 1 cup dry milk powder 1 tsp baking powder (levelled) 2 tbsp semolina 2 tbsp melted butter 1 egg vegetable oil for deep frying

For Syrup: 1 cup sugar 2 cup water 4-5 pods of cardamom


Dough: Combine the dry milk powder, baking powder, semolina, egg and melted butter in a bowl and mix them properly.  Keep mixing them with your hand until your dough become thick and smooth. Then make the small balls and make sure that ball should be as smooth as possible because cracks will make the Jamuns disintegrate when they are soaked in syrup. To make them smooth you can grease your palms with oil while you make the balls.
Frying: Heat the vegetable oil on high when it’s hot, reduce the heat to medium. Then slip the balls one by one into the hot oil. Let the balls sink to the bottom of the pan. They will rise to the surface on their own. Fry them for about 3 to 4 minutes and keep turning them so they are evenly cooked on all sides.
Syrup: Heat the water and then add the sugar and cardamom. Stir the ingredients well to combine them. Heat it up for about 10 minutes then add the fried balls in the syrup on full heat. Stir the Balls in the syrup on high heat for about 4-5 mints and then turn off the heat and put the lid on the bowl and leave it for about 5 to 6 hours. Once the Gulab Jamuns have soaked in the syrup for a long enough time they are ready to eat. You can serve them warm as well as cold.
