Gulab jamun is a popular Indian sweet that is prepared from milk solids traditionally khoya or mawa. Where khoya or mawa is dried evaporated milk solids which is obtained by continuously cooking the milk on a low flame for hours and then reduced to the consistency of a soft dough..

There are many variations in making of gulab jamuns like they can be made from milk powder,sweet potatoes,paneer,bread,potatoes.But the authentic Gulab Jamuns are prepared from khoya or mawa only.And this have that unique and rich taste which we don’t get from others.

It is a favourite dessert often eaten and prepared at festivals,birthdays or major celebrations such as weddings,parties.

Here in this recipe I have bought the fresh khoya from my local market.This khoya is kneaded into a dough with small amount of flour(maida),and then shaped into small balls and then deep fried in oil at low temperature till they turn golden brown color.If this ball are cooked quickly they remain raw (कच्चे).

These fried balls are then soaked in a simmering light sugar syrup which is flavoured with green cardamom powder and saffron.Also rose water or kewra water is added as per your choice for adding extra flavour.

I am preparing the gulab jamun in the style which my mother used to make.I have mixed the fresh khoya with maida and then prepared the gulab jamuns.If you want to prepare the gulab jamuns for fasting then instead of maida add arrowroot powder to the khoya.

I have fried them in regular vegetable oil.But if you want to prepare it traditionally then you can fry them in ghee.

Also while preparing the sugar syrup I have added just the green cardamom powder.You can add rose water when the sugar syrup get cool down.
