Gulab Jamun


  • 1 cup nonfat Milk Powder
  • 1/4 cup All Purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup Milk ( @ room temperature)
  • 3 Tbsp unsalted Butter(@ room temperature)
  • 1 tsp Cardamom Powder
  • Pinch of baking soda
  • Oil for deep-frying
For Syrup
  • 1 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup water


In a bowl, mix milk powder, flour and baking soda. Add the butter little by little and mix well.
Now add milk to make soft dough. The dough will be sticky.
Let the dough sit for a few minutes. (Grease your hands with butter before working with the dough )and knead it well for 3-5 minutes.
Divide the dough into about 15-20 equal portions and roll them into round balls.
Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium heat. To test if the oil is the right temperature, place a small piece of dough into the oil; it should take a minute to rise. Place the gulab Jamuns in the frying pan.

Gulab jamuns will expand in volume, so make small batchs for frying and it will take 6-8 minutes. Fry them till brown and let them cool off for a few minutes before placing in the hot syrup.


In a large pan, add water, sugar, and ground cardamom powder. Stir the syrup until the sugar is dissolved and bring it to a boil. Turn off the heat and put all gulab jamun in the syrup.

 Serve hot / cold  and also it taste good with vanilla ice cream.

Note: If the dough is dry, add more milk, as the dough should be soft. While frying keep rolling the gulab jamuns around so they are evenly browned.
