How To Make Gulab Jamuns Step By Step Easy Recipe

gulab jamun

Gulab jamuns (more or less translated as “rose fruits”) is named after the fact that they resemble a Jamun (a fruit of the subcontinent) and are usually soaked in a rose-water-flavoured syrup. While some say they were introduced to the subcontinent by Turkish invaders from Central Asia, others claim they were accidentally discovered by the personal chef of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan.

Mostly, the fried balls are made from milk powder, flour, butter, and cream or milk, and then soaked in sugar syrup. I know they sound awful when I say it, but they are so delicious (I promise).

It’s hard to describe something that melts in your mouth once it’s bitten, something that travels through your food pipe and fills it with its warmth and gives you some satisfaction that only delicious food can offer.

But that’s precisely how gulab jamuns make me feel. These soft cushions baked dough filled with syrup give you the kind of comfort that you feel when you are with your family. Not to mention that a desi party is not complete, unless these delicacies are present, whether it is a Shaadi, Eid, aunt’s commission parties … I can continue here. My mother even buys them randomly to satisfy her sweet tooth.

After many disasters and triumphs, the gulab jamuns were part of my triumph parade.
