Now traditionally we make gulab jamuns out of a packet or using flour.
This is the invention of a bored mother and daughter who had no idea how to spend a lazy Saturday afternoon.
What you need:
Milk-50 ml (just an estimate-to make the dough)
Salt -a pinch
Oil for deep frying
Cardamom powder- 1-2 tsp
Rose essence-a few drops
Sugar-1 cup + 1 tbsp
Water- 2 cups
What do you do:
Dissolve sugar in the water . Add cardamom powder and boil till it reaches a syrupy consistency. Add the essence and take off the fire.
Make a dough with bread, milk, salt and 1 tbsp sugar. Make little balls and deep fry them in oil till brown and crisp. Drop them while hot into the sugar syrup. Serve hot or cold
