Gulab Jamun Recipe

Gulab jamun

Gulab jamun is a dessert from India. It is presented in the form of dumplings, cooked in oil and served with a thick syrup.

Gulab jamun INGRÉDIENTS:

  • 250 g milk powder
  • 120 g white flour
  • 25 cl milk
  • 2 tablespoon (s) of butter
  • 1 packet of dry yeast
  • 3 teaspoon (s) of sugar
  • 4 green cardamoms
  • 2 tablespoon (s) lemon juice


  1. Mix the powdered milk and the flour in a bowl. Add the butter and sand the dough.
  2. Add the milk (liquid), knead and collect everything into a uniform paste. Form very smooth dumplings (Gulabs) without cracking the size of a walnut (so that they do not come off during frying).
  3. Immerse the Gulab in an oil bath and mix them delicately in all directions so that they are evenly browned. As soon as they get a nice color, let them drain, on absorbent paper.
  4. Prepare the syrup by mixing 3 tsp. sugar with 7 tsp. coffee, crushed cardamom, and lemon juice. Cook over low heat (you can flavor the syrup with rose water).
  5. Immerse the Gulab in the syrup, and let them absorb the syrup until they are very spongy and moist.
  6. Serve in a hollow container with the liquid syrup.


You can keep it cool for a few days. You can decorate them with dried fruits: almonds, cashews … or silver paper leaves that can be found in Indian grocery stores.
