Shahi Gulab Jamun With Vanilla Ice Cream

Ingredients

1 cup Gulab Jamun mix: (use any brand by GITS or MTR, available on Amazon)
1/4 cup Warm Milk:
2 teaspoons Chopped Almonds, Pistachio:
Cardamom powder: a pinch
Oil/Ghee: for frying
For syrup:
1 cup Water:
2 cups Sugar:
1/2 teaspoon Cardamom:
Saffron: a pinch
3 drops Rose Water:

Preparation

1
Take gulab jamun mix in a bowl.
2
Add some warm milk instead of water to make the dough.
3
Gently knead the dough and set it aside for 10 minutes.
4
Add finely some chopped almonds, pistachio in the dough and roll it into small balls.
5
Make sure there are no cracks in the balls, so fix if any by dabbing little oil on your fingers.
6
I prefer to make small balls, for even cooking of jamuns from inside out and kids love the size.
7
Prepare the syrup in a pan, by boiling - water, sugar, saffron, rose water and cardamom for enhanced flavor.
8
Heat ghee/oil in a deep skillet. I used canola oil and fry the jamuns on low heat till it turns dark brown.
9
Take out the jamuns on the paper towel and soak them in sugar syrup.
10
Leave for a few hours, preferable overnight.
11
The gulab jamuns can be either served at room temperature or a little warm.
12
Can be warmed in a microwave for 10 seconds just before serving.
13
Can't beat the feeling, warm thin caramelized crust outside & sweet and soft from inside. I like to top up the gulab jamuns with pistachio just before serving and with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
