A Day To Celebrate with Gulab Jamoons

25th Jan 2009 is the day when i started my blog.It's been a wonderful year.Posted 181 post with 200+ recipes.My blogging all started when i met my classmate in a social networking site.The journey so far has been wonderful and entertaining.In this virtual world met so many like minded people and brought close to few of them.Hugs to all my readers and friends and special hugs to Padma rekha of plantain leaf and Lubna of yummy food,without support from you both i don't think i would have completed one year of blogging.

I am celebrating my blog anniversary with gulab jamoon.The recipe i got it from a omani friend.I have tried making gulab jamoons many times and not once i got it right.Then one day i was cleaning my old hand bag and i got a paper which has this recipe written by my omani friend 7 years back.7 long years the recipe was laying with me and i was searching for a perfect and easy recipe to make jamoons.The jamoons came out very well with this recipe and i am making them again on 1st feb on my daughter's birthday.


Milk powder 2 cups

Maida 2tsp

Oil 1tsp

Eggs 2

Baking powder 2tsp

Sugar 2 cups

Water 1cup

Beat egg and keep aside

Mix milk powder,maida and baking powder

Slowly add egg to the milk powder and make a soft dough (don't just add the entire egg to the milk powder,slowly with tablespoon add the egg and if egg is left discard it)

Apply oil to the hands and make small balls.

Heat a pan with enough oil for deep frying.Once the oil is hot,minimise the heat.

Fry jamoons in low heat only carefully turning them.When they are fried on high,inside of the jamoons are not cooked,so always they have to be fried on low heat.

Meanwhile mix water and sugar and let it come to one boil.Remove from the stove.

Once jamoons are light brown in colour transfer them into the sugar syrup.

Can be served immediately or can be served later.

I love to eat gulab jamoons hot and with vanilla ice cream.

I am grateful to you all who visit my blog,read and comment.Your comments are like back bone to my blog,without your comments i don't think i would have completed one year of blogging.

  18. Congratulations, beautiful blog and these gulab jamuns are gorgeous, I love gulab jamuns

  19. Just came across your page and thought to inform you. Gulab Jamun is a pure vegetarian dish (WITH NO EGG IN IT). The correct way to make Gulab Jamun is by mixing Maida and Khoya (condensed milk - not the tinned one)..

  20. Dear anonymous the recipe i wrote is from a friend who lives in muscat(oman) and gulab jamun is made in middle east as well.Middle eastern people are more of non-vegetarians than vegetarians.This gulab jamun is there way of making it.
