    Dough and balls Preparation: Mix all purpose flour, skim milk powder, a pinch of baking soda, a pinch of salt, and 2 tsps of oil in a bowl Gently make the dough using the cream (avoid rubbing too tightly, it might result in very hard Gulab Jamuns) Apply some oil to your palms, and make small balls out of it Balls will grow in size once fried and soaked in syrup
  • Frying Gulab Jamun
    Deep Frying the Gulab Jamun Balls: Heat some oil in a separate pan Check the temperature of the oil by adding one ball to it in the beginning If the ball does not rise up on its own, oil is not ready yet; and if the ball rises and turns brown too quickly, the oil is too hot Wait for the right temperature, and deep fry the balls few at a time, while stirring them continuously Once evenly light brown, strain them into a paper towel for the extra oil to drain
