Rawa Gulab Jamun

Cooking is all about experimenting with new things with various combinations and one such experiment is making Rawa Gulab Jamun without instant mixes. 

With the outcome, one cannot differentiate the difference between regular instant mix gulab jamun and Rawa Gulab Jamun.

It is made without Mawa or Koya. This is a simple recipe made with Milk, Rawa (Sooji), and Ghee. 

Saute the sooji on low flame and grind it to a fine powder and mix it with boiling milk to make the batter. To get a good batter finish add ghee and mix well. 

Once you see the batter-like consistency, make shapes of Gulab Jamun and deep fry them until soft inside and crisp outside. 

Add the deep-fried cooked Gulab Jamun to the sugar syrup and leave it aside for 30 minutes to let Gulab Jamun absorb the sweetness.

This way you can make a variety and natural (non-preservative instant mix) Gulab Jamun at home. 

Don’t forget to top the Rawa (Sooji) Gulab Jamun with your favorite nuts.
