Gulab jamun / Gulab Jamoon – the name itself tempts us very much right? It is the most easiest sweet recipes that we can make for any occasions like Diwali or birthdays, anniversaries or any celebration. And I always drool when I see advertisements in TV or when I see the pictures in magazines. I am not that big fan though I like it, still I love to see it and enjoy making it too. And its my family favorite too. Right from Vj, Aj and my in laws every one likes this. But always we make with readymade Jamun mix. MT* and Aach* are my favorite. Though I have tried all the packs. I love the shahi jamun variety very much too.
I enjoyed clicking this jamuns and excited too to post this recipe. I have tried gulab jamun with milk powder, but not been lucky to get it right, but sure I will post one day when I get it right, I am sure I will get it as now I learnt from my mistakes. So to first start with, I wanted to be safe, so tried khoya version. I bought khoya 2 weeks back and was planning to try some other recipes with khoya, but ended up making jamun. I have recipes for both jamun with kova and jamun with milk powder in my cookbook that mom gave to me, but the problem is measurement. She has given everything in bulk and it wont work for me. I wanted to try just a little first time. First I saw the gulab jamun recipe with khoya from Sanjeev Kapoor’s site, but it had chenna in it, So I referred Kaveri Venkatesh’s recipe from Palakkad Chamayal. It came out really perfect as she mentioned. I am now confident enough to try the other version with milk powder too. And this post is dedicated to all the jamoon lovers.
Let it get soaked well in the syrup for 3 hrs at least and enjoy the soaked, syrup drunken jamuns!
