Many of us have this as our favourie. we find these in shops and we feel it as a highly tempting and mouth watering one.
so lets see how to prepare jamuns at home. Jamuns are very easy to make dish compared to any other sweet.
cooking time: 15mins
- 1 cup khoa (see my post to know how to make khoa)
- 2tablespoon maida (all purpose flour)
- 2tbs sooji
- 2tbs milk
- pinch of baking soda
- Oil as required for frying
- 250gms sugar
- cup of water
Now lets get into the preparation part.
Take khoya in a bowl and mix it well as they become lumps free. khoya are usualy soft and they mix very well easily so mash it well first.
Now add maida, sooji, baking powder and milk and mix it well with khoya. Just softly blend it . Do not hard press the batter like you knead a chapathi flour. Mixing smoothly makes the jamun come out soft.
Now cover the mix and allow the batter to set aside for minimum 30 mins before rolling into balls.
Now lets prepare the sugar syrup. Take a bowl and add one cup of water and let it boil.
once the water started to boil add of sugar into it. Let the sugar completely dissolve and do stir it continuously till it dissolves .
now allow the sugar water to boil well atleast 10 mins.
Note: The sugar syrup need not become much thick like you prepare for other sweets like adhirasam . A runny consistency is required here for jamuns. so dont boil too much like paagu padham.
once the syrup is ready keep it aside.
Now take the jamun mix and make it into small balls. If the mix is too dry add milk as per required to make balls.
Note: when making balls dont press too much and make sure you roll it well so no cracks are seen over. else when frying jamuns may break out.
In a kadai add oil and start frying the jamuns until they are evenly brown.
Take the fried jamuns in a plate and once they come to room temperature or less hotter then add these to the sugar syrup.
So now our gulab jamuns are ready to taste….
