Gulab Jamun





Introduction: Gulab Jamun

There are three ways to make Gulab Jamun.They are with Potatoes,Full cream milk powder,or  Condensed milk.
This is  with Condensed milk.It depends on the  correct mixing of the dough.The dough has to be sticky and soft.If not the Gulab Jamun will be hard.

This is a very sweet & delicious dessert. 
If you taste  once ,you will want more and more..........

Step 1: Ingredients

Pic 2 : Shift  flour and baking powder together and add flour gradually

Pic 3 : Mix well and. Knead.

Pic 4 : The  consistency should be sticky.At this point add the butter

I am a day care mom who is working full time,and do not have enough time for my sewing and crafting work which I love it very much.If ever I win the laser cutter I will give up my full time job or reduce it to a couple of hours(because I do a lot of craft work  with the kids and they will be dissapointed to see me no more)and start my own business at  home as I have enough and more sewing orders which I can not do it on time.Every instructable I do with the help of the laser cutter,I will definetly post it on this great site.

    Greetings! I tried this great recipe, and as feared, it was hard. And I see you have warned against the same in your recipe. Could you tell me what went wrong with my mixture?

    Ohh! sad.Did you KNEAD well and cover with a wet cloth?It depends on the consistency of the dough too.When I did the first time it became hard.The first couple of time it was hard but slowly improved.When you make the balls the dough should be stiky but not stick to the palm.I will post you another nice recipe soon.

    my mom makes them too...that yellow water called 'shiree' she makes it best.
    your from pakistan right? :)

    Here I am ! Sorry for the late reply.With your measurement cup,or spoon ,take 6 cups milk powder (full cream) 3 cups Rulang and 1 1/2 cup curd.Mix and knead well.The rest is same as above.Some times there will be a little curd remaining or may be that you have to add more.Depends on the mixing.

    As for the potato recipe Sorry I have to search my recipe book ,it is not in my mind.
    Hope this will help you.

    Thanks..Try it with your choice of Flavoured Yogurt..... Mmmm out of the world.

    Oh i just love this! but it's seriously bad for my diet!!

    This is one of my favorite desserts ever! But it's so hard to find a place that does it really well. The friend who introduced me to it loves it obscenely. Serious - I can't type here what he says whenever he eats it. But it's good.
