  3. Add a teaspoon of milk to it and knead all of them together to make a smooth and soft dough. Add another teaspoon of milk if required.
  4. Make sure the dough is a little softer to prevent the ball from cracking while being deep-fried.
  5. Divide the dough into equal parts and make smooth surfaced balls out of it.
  6. Heat oil in a heavy-bottom pan over medium heat.
  7. Deep fry the khoya balls in small batches over low heat until dark brown on both sides. Keep the flame low to medium while deep frying for even cooking.
  8. Drain fried balls on a kitchen towel while you prepare sugar syrup

  • To make soft Gulab Jamuns, knead the dough very well so that no lumps remain.
  • Always deep-fry Jamun over low to medium heat for even browning and cooking.
  • It’s crucial that the gulab jamuns are warm when the hot sugar syrup is added, not at room temperature. If necessary, heat gulab jamun in the microwave for five minutes before soaking it in sugar syrup
  • Let gulab jamun rest in sugar syrup for 1 – 2 hours to get soft and spongy.
