Instructions Crumble khoya finely. Add to it maida, milk and baking soda and knead it together to make a dough. Keep it aside for 1 hour. Heat oil in a kadai or a pan. Once hot, turn the flame to medium. Make small balls (spherical or oval) off the dough. Take a small portion of the mix and deep fry to test the consistency of the mix. :- If the ball breaks, then the mix is too moist, so add little more flour and adjust the consistency. Fry all the balls till golden brown. Drain the oil and immerse immediatly into the syrup. For making the Syrup: 1)Take a pan and add sugar and enough water. Stir the contents, till you get a thread-like consistency. Add cardamom powder to this and mix well. :- If immersed immediatly, the crispness of the jamuns is maintained. :- Maximum preparation time other than dough setting is 20 min.

I grew up in Durban and my favorite time of the year was Dwali, with all the sweetmeat and food. I still make a mean curry and “bunny chow” is the best. If you tell me what ingredients you are unable to get I will send them to you in SOuth Africa no problem no cost my little gift to a fellow cook ! Hope you get my Message.

Reply maya March 31, 2006 - 12:00 am what type of recipe is this?ooo! Reply Shabana June 29, 2004 - 12:00 am What is this khoa???? Reply NN June 14, 2005 - 12:00 am To avoid teh jamuns from being uncooked in the center. Add a raisin in the center of the jamun balls while making these balls. the raisin will ensure the entire jamun is evenly cooked Reply Megah March 27, 2008 - 12:00 am I have a suggestion for all those who find it difficult to get Khoya. I use Full Cream Condensed milk which is available everywhere. Microwave 1 tin condensed milk with 2 tsp ghee and 2 tsp curd for 6 minutes. Khoya is ready. It is too good. Reply PriyaS October 28, 2008 - 12:00 am I tried this receipe during this diwali.it was delicious.my family members liked it Reply diwya July 12, 2006 - 12:00 am it was great Reply Alisha February 20, 2006 - 12:00 am I dont have to rate ur receipe good. ur comment box is filled with good compliments. Congrats!!!!. I `d like to suggest my way of preparing gulabjamoon more over i think its a better and easy way of making Gulabjamoon. why not u try this and let me know how it tastes. (1) 1 cup milk powder (whole milk powder) (2) 1 egg (3) 1 tea spoon baking powder (3) A pinch of salt for taste Sugar water:- One cup suger should be boiled with one cup water. make them boil till u get that kambe patham. Method:- Mix the above said ingredients well and leave it for 10-15 mints. Later you can make small ball out of the dough. fry them in a hot oil and put them in to the suger water immediately so that it would get socked into suger water soon. For good smoothness and softness make the gulabjamoon sock into suget water for 24 hours. Reply SN June 29, 2007 - 12:00 am Well! This is the authentic recipe. Even great chefs like Sanjeev Kapoor have suggested similar methods. Well! Alisha, please don`t give junk recipes. Eggs in Gulab Jamuns. Oh! my! God save people who try your invention. Soumya, your recipe is great! Reply Raji June 29, 2004 - 12:00 am Khoa is Unsweetened condensed milk made by boiling milk quickly in a shallow pan (such as a large, heavy frying pan) to allow for as much surface evaporation as possible. It must be stirred constantly. When ready, khoa has a consistency of uncooked pastry. Four cups of milk yield about 90 g of khoa. It is an ingredient in Indian sweetmeats.

Reply lorraine November 28, 2005 - 12:00 am First of all I have never even heard of some of the ingredients you ask for and here in S. Africa such things are not accesible so we cannot even try the recipe out Reply priya January 10, 2006 - 12:00 am it came out very nice. Reply Arjun July 25, 2006 - 12:00 am Girls like Ash,others asking what is Khoyaa? Khoyaa is nice cream that you can enjoy whenever you like—just make sure the Dick is clean Arjun Reply Rinu September 25, 2007 - 12:00 am I agree with alisha. I have made Gulab Jamun`s and sowmya`s recipe is very good. jamun`s with eggs is a new creation which can be named egg jamuns . Sorry for being rude but cannot help it since some posted bad comments.Accurate measurments will never make any dish bad Good job sowmya!!
