Today is the last day for the theme occasion in Blogging Marathon#27 and wanted to finish the theme with a dessert.
Malai Jamun is a tempting and delicious sweet in which the regular soft and spongy jamuns are soaked in a creamy,thick flavored milk.
This recipe I adapted from here and slightly tweaked it to my convenience and taste.I made couple of times with the store bought gulab jamun mix and my kiddo loved it a lot.But this time tried it with khoya which was lying in my freezer since 3 weeks.Her is the recipe..........................
For the Jamun
|All purpose flour||1/4cup|
|Baking soda||a pinch|
|Cardamom powder||a pinch|
|Oil||as needed to fry|
Badam milk powder
|Pistachios(finely chopped)||for garnishing|
- In a heavy bottom pan add the milk and simmer it till it reduces 1/3rd,then add the sugar.Let it boil for 5 minutes.
- Now mix the badam milk powder in a2tbs of milk and add it to the milk.Put off the fire and keep it aside.
- In a pan dissolve the sugar in water and heat,make a thick sugar syrup.No need of any string consistency,keep it aside.
- In a bowl take the khoya,all purpose flour,baking powder and ghee,mix it well.Now add milk little by little and make a soft dough.
- Pinch a small gooseberry size ball and roll into a smooth ball without giving too much of pressure.
- Heat the pan with oil in a medium flame and drop 6-7 and rotate the pan so that all sides of the ball gets cooked evenly.
- Once it is cooked to golden brown color drain it from the oil and drop it in the sugar syrup.
- After 10 minutes take the jamuns from the sugar syrup carefully add add it to the milk mixture and garnish it with chopped pistachios.
- Refrigerate for 2-3 hours and serve it chilled.
- Instead of simmering the milk 11/2 cups of evaporated milk and 1/2 cup of condensed milk can be used.
- Instead of badam milk powder finely chopped nuts and saffron can be used.
- The amount of sugar given for the rabdi can be increased if you are not using condensed milk or badam milk powder.
