Malai Jamun

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

Unsweetned khoya/mawa1cup
All purpose flour1/4cup
Baking sodaa pinch
Milk to knead
Cardamom powdera pinch
Oilas needed to fry
For the Malai/Rabdi
Whole Milk21/2cups

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.
