Gulab Jamun

Recipe and Photo Courtesy: Padmini, Srinivasan (my parents)

Yummy yummy!!! My favourite sweet! Amma makes the best jamuns. she made it for this diwali and here is the recipe

Ingredients:

250g Khoa
3 tbsp Maida (all purpse flour)- if needed
2 1/2 cups sugar
11/2 cups water
oil for dep frying

Cooking Directions:

Start kneadig fresh khoa in a singke drection using your palm.
Add maida if the khoa is very sticky. The amount of maida depends on how sticky the khoa is. After adding the maida,to the khoa, you should be able to roll it into small balls or finger like shape.
Adding too much maida might make the khoa very dry and hard. So be careful
Meanwhile heat sufficient oil for deep frying.
In another kadai, add sugar and water. Allow it boil till the solution is sticky. You do not have to boil it to a string consistency. Sticky sugar solution should be fine. Now keep it on low flame.
Fry the khoa balls in oil on low-medium heat till all the jamuns are brown and well cooked
Allow them to soak in the sugar solution and after 2min put off the heat in the sugar solution.
Wait for a few min il the jamuns are well soaked. It is now ready to be served hot!
Enjoy it with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream!!!

All time favorite preethi, try adding cornflour instead of maida, the jamun are even more lighter....just a suggestion dear.
