Bread Jamun

A few of us from the Blogging Marathon Group decided that we should throw a surprise bridal shower for our dear friend, Aarthi of YummyTummy who is getting married later this month. So each of us have picked one recipe from her blog and recreated at our end and have decided to post it today/tomorrow. 

Aarthi, Hearty congratulations for a Happy and Blessed Married Life!! 

Here is a collage of some of our creations created by Kalyani.

Ingredients - 

Bread 5-6 slices
Milk 1/4 cup or more if needed (I used soy milk)
Sugar 1 cup (I used brown sugar)
Cardamom powder 1/2 tsp
Water 1/2 cup
Oil / Ghee for frying

Method Of Preparation -

Pulse the bread slices in a processor to a fine powder.

Add milk gradually to make a stiff dough. If possible knead well in a processor or by hand.

In a deep frying pan, add oil/ghee in medium heat.

Pinch marble sized dough and roll them into balls and set aside.

Meanwhile, prepare the sugar syrup by boiling the water and sugar until the sugar melts and the syrup is sticky.

Once the oil/ghee is hot enough, gently slide the rolled dough balls and fry until they are golden brown.

Remove onto paper towels to drain excess oil and slide them into the warm syrup. Set aside for a couple of hours. 

Refrigerate before serving.

Preparation Time 30 min 
Makes 12-15
