GULAB JAMUN INDIAN DOUGHNUTS
Today is future brother-in-law Abel’s birthday. One of his favourite tea time treats is gulab jamun. We made the below recipe, minus the coconut.
- ½ can condensed milk
- 3 eggs
- 3 tablespoons melted butter
- 2 cups cake flour
- 15 ml baking powder
- 2 ml cream of tartar
- 2 ml elachi (ground cardamon)
- 1 ml nutmeg
- 200 ml sugar
- few drops of rose water
- 200 ml water
Mix condensed milk, eggs and melted butter.
Add remaining dry ingredients to milk mixture and mix to a soft dough.
Use the palm of your hand to shape into long finger shapes and deep fry in medium hot oil.
Dip in hot syrup and roll in coconut.
Dissolve sugar and rose water over low heat.
Boil for 10 minutes over medium heat until a thick syrup is formed.
