Indian Gulab Jamun

Gulab Jamun from India



Gulab jamun are cake-like fried milk balls in scented syrup. The dough for this dish takes only minutes to assemble, but the balls must be fried very slowly under carefully controlled temperatures. Some recipes increase the flour content in order to minimize the importance of the heat regulation; but the less flour there is in the dough, the better the quality of the gulab jamun. If the balls are browned too quickly or not fried long enough, they tend to collapse in the sugar syrup. Because the balls must be constantly agitated while they fry, unplug the phone, pull up a stool and put on your favourite record. Gulab jamuns are good sweets for festive moments, such as holidays and entertaining. They may be served warm or at room temperature. Internet source no longer available.
