Gulab Jamun With Milk Powder

BM #74 Week 3 Day 3 -

The dessert in the series of Holi Specials this week, is this mouth watering Gulab Jamun made with milk powder. I have been pushing this off for many years now. 

Just the other day my husband pointed out that I hadn't posted the regular Gulab Jamun yet. So I took the opportunity to make these and shared with friends.

Method Of Preparation -
Prepare the Sugar Syrup - In a pan, heat the sugar and water until the syrup comes to a rolling boil and the syrup gets a little sticky. Set aside making sure it stays warm.

To Prepare the Gulab Jamuns - In a mixing bowl, add the milk powder, flour, salt, baking powder and ghee/oil and mix well until the ghee/oil is incorporated well into the mixture.

Add in yogurt little by little and knead gently to form a soft dough. Don't knead too much.

Heat a wok/kadai with oil/ghee in it. 

Pinch equal portions of the dough and gently make required sized balls and gently slide them into the hot oil. 

Fry them on low heat until they are uniformly brown all over.

Remove them and dunk them in the sugar syrup.

Serve warm or chilled as per preference.
