1.5 cup (100 grams) Milk powder, unsweetened
1 cup (60 grams) Maida / plain flour
1/2 tsp Baking powder
4 tbsp Ghee / clarified butter
Milk (for kneading)
Ghee or oil (for frying)
For sugar syrup:
4 cup sugar
4 cup water
0.5 tsp saffron
2 tsp rose water
½ tsp Gulkand / Soaked rose petals in sugar syrup
10 tsp Nuts chopped
Let us get started!!!
In Maxima’s Tri Ply Tasra add milk powder, all-purpose flour, semolina, baking powder, clarified butter or ghee and add milk little by little and mix everything well.
In a separate bowl, mix Gulkand and chopped nuts together and keep it aside.
For Sugar syrup
In a Maxima’s Tri Ply saucepan, add water and dissolve the sugar till it gets thicken on medium flame and once its ready turn off the flame. Filter the sugar syrup in a thin filter. And add cardamom pods, rose water and saffron to it.
Make sure to keep the sugar syrup hot while dipping Jamun.
Knead dough as soft as you can, part out the dough into equal sized balls and roll it like a small balls each. Take a ball and flatten it out with your fingers. Place some small quantity of stuffing over it and Roll again like proper round shape. Each ball should not be too big or too small (Approximately 1 inch thick preferred). Make smooth balls without cracks or lines. Keep them covered.
Then set the Maxima’s Tri Ply Kadai in slow flame and add ghee to it. Once the ghee is hot, Fry the balls one by one making it completely submerged in ghee properly until it turns golden brown on all sides. While frying the balls, make sure the ghee is not too hot (As the ball will turn brown fast before getting cooked inside). Also make sure the balls are not getting broken or cracked while frying.
Trick is to get the balls out, when it is properly cooked (Nor undercooked not overcooked).
Once all your Jamuns are ready, turn off the flame. Then add Jamuns directly to sugar syrup. Leave it aside for a while so the Jamun absorbs the sugar syrup completely.
Here you can keep a ladle in Maxima’s Tri ply sauce pan to stir the Jamun carefully. Try to keep the ladle away from Jamun to keep the Jamun in shape.
For Parties: Before serving, transfer the Gulab Jamun and sugar syrup to Maxima’s Tri Ply Shallow Tope to garnish with rose petals and sliced Pistachios on top.
Serve hot in small bowl or refrigerate for few hours and serve cold with your preferred flavor ice cream topping.
