How to Make Perfect Gulab Jamun


  1. Dry Milk Powder – 3 cups ( do not use any low fat options)
  2. Self Raising Flour – 1 cup

  5. Thickened Cream  – 200gm
  6. Oil  – for Deep Frying


  • Take a mixing bowl, add the milk, self raising flour ( or Add the Plain Flour and the baking Soda), add ½ cup of milk ( Milk is important as it will bind the flour ), add the cream, Knead the mixture into a dough.
  • Adjust the quantity of cream which you add to keep tight dough.
  • Put the pan on very low heat with the oil for deep frying. (Very Low Heat please).
  • Make small balls of the dough and use some oil on your hands to make a smooth and shiny ball of the size of a cherry. (Remember that it will swell up while frying and while in the syrup as well).
  • Once the balls have turned dark brown then transfer them in the sugar syrup.

To make Sugar Syrup


  1. 3 Cups of White Sugar
  2. 3 Cups of Water
  3. 2 Green Cardamoms


  • Take a pot and add 3 cups of water, sugar and green Cardamoms.
  • Bring the water to boil. Let it boil for 15 minutes. (Keep the pot covered with a lid, just leave a bit of a room for steam to escape).
  • Once the syrup has thickened a bit then keep it aside.
  • The Gulab Jamuns are ready. If the syrup has not penetrated into the centre of Gulab Jamuns then keep them dipped in the syrup.
  • You can actually store the Gulab Jamuns in the fridge in the syrup itself.
