Quick and Easy Gulabjamun


1 packet milk powder (any brand)
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground Cardamom/Saffron mixture
1/2 teaspoon yogurt
1/2 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup lukewarm milk
Vegetable oil for frying

For sugar syrup:
1 and 1/4 (1.25) cup sugar
2 cups water
1 teaspoon rose water


Combine milk powder, all-purpose flour, baking soda and cardamom/saffron mixture in a bowl. Mix well. Melt butter separately. Add melted butter and yogurt to the dry ingredients and mix well. Add milk slowly giving the milk powder time to absorb liquid and make soft dough. (It takes about 20 minutes for this step). Cover with a wet paper towel and keep aside for 15 minutes. Knead well. Break off dough to make approximately 1-inch balls. Keep under moist paper towel.

For sugar syrup, mix sugar and 2 cups water in a shallow pan. Bring it to a rolling boil. Add ½ teaspoon lemon juice. Once all the sugar is dissolved reduce the heat to the lowest setting.

Heat vegetable oil on medium heat in a deep frying pan or a wok. Fry a few balls at a time. Remove from heat when the ball has doubled in size and is golden brown in color and immediately put in the warm sugar syrup. Let stand. Add rose water to the syrup when it is cool. Serve at room temperature.

This will make about 20-25 Gulabjamuns.
