    Mix together the milk powder, milk and ghee until you have a breadcrumb like consistency. They will form into little balls. Rub the balls in between your fingers.


    Add in the cardamom, cardamom seeds, saffron, flour, baking powder and mix them together.


    Then add the egg and mix well.


    Add in the condensed milk to form a soft dough. Add the condensed milk in gradually as you may not need all of it.


    Roll the dough into your own desired shape. Watch our video on Gulab Jamun for reference.


    Fill enough oil to fry the gulab jamun in a saucepan- We like to use a wide frying pan as the gulab jamun have more space to settle and rise.


    Once the oil is heated fry the balls on a low heat.

    Ruky tip
    You must ensure that the oil is on a low heat as they may cook on the outside faster than the inside. Therefore if the oil heat is low, they will fry more evenly.
    Whilst these are cooking, begin to make the sugar syrup.


    Boil the sugar and water in a medium saucepan on a high heat for around 10-15 mins. It should slightly thicken. Add the rose essence.


    Once the gulab jamun are a golden colour, remove them from the oil and dip them in the sugar syrup for 30 seconds and immediately coat in coconut.


    Serve and enjoy these amazing mouth-watering treats!
