Ingredients:

  • 2 cups full cream milk powder
  • 2 tbspns self raising flour
  • 1 tspn baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 – 3 tbspn ghee
  • Some almonds, pistachios and silver edible foil for garnishing
  • Oil for deep frying

FOR SHEERA (SUGAR SYRUP)

  • 3 cups water
  • few cardamo seeds
  • 3 cups raw sugar
  • ½ cup brown packed sugar
  • 1 tspn kewra essence

Procedure:

-In a saucepan put everything given for sheera and stir to a boil.

-In a mixing bowl combine all the ingredients (except eggs) given for gulab jaman and mix.

-Now whisk two eggs and gradually add them to the dry ingredients and knead. Knead the dough and if it is sticky leave it for 5 -minutes.

-Heat oil to the point where you drop a small ball of dough, it rests at the bottom for some seconds and then rise to the surface of the oil with a little bit of hissing. To get this temperature you may have to repeat this temperature test twice or thrice.

-Now with clean hands roll 12 – 14 balls or ovals from this dough and drop 4 – 6 at a time (depending on the size of your pan) to fry. When they come up to the surface of the oil keep moving the balls gently to get even colouring. When you get the desired color take the balls out of the oil and put them in hot sugar syrup.

-Dish out, garnish with pistachios, almonds and edible silver foil, and serve.
