Gulab Jamun Using Jamun Mix
Jamun is the most favourite in my family,its a tradition to prepare jamun on birthdays in my family,because from my husband to both my kids when you ask them what they want for their birthday they will ask for Jamun.You can choose any brand name jamun mix but i prefer Gits one.
50-60 ml that is approximately 1/4 cup of water / milk
1 tsp ghee
oil for frying
300 g sugar(1.25 )
320 ml water
1 tsp cardamon powder
Slowly add water or milk to knead into a smooth soft dough,it should not be too soft nor very hard. also milk makes richer jamuns.
Meanwhile heat sufficient quantity of oil (jamuns should not touch the bottom of pan)at medium flame in the wok.
If the balls have crack and it become hard then the jamuns in oil cracks a lot and break and if its too soft then in oil it becomes like soggy.for this you have to be very careful while kneading the dough.
If you feel syrup is all soaked then prepare little more syrup in other pan and pour on this Gulab Jamun.
