What do i say about this mouth-watering luscious dish. It is the most popular dessert in India, mostly eaten during festivals and major celebrations. Though it is a very easy recipe, it needs utmost care in the making as the whole taste of the sweet lies in its sponginess. So the flour needs to be mixed in a right proportion. My first experiment with this dish has been a disaster and my husband named my dish as "Gulab Rocks", the impression still remains the same . But this can be your exquisite here’s the simple, yet fantastic recipe for you.

You will need:

  • 1 Gulab jamun mix-MTR (preferably)
  • Oil or ghee for frying
  • For syrup:-
  • 2Cups sugar
  • 1Cup water
  • Cardamom pods-4-5
  • Vanilla essence (optional)
  • Cashew powder


  • In a vessel add sugar,water & cardamom pods & boil for abt 15min...keep it warm.
  • Add one drop of Vanilla essence to the syrup. This adds a great flavor.
  • Put the Gulab Jamun mix in a bowl & add water bit by bit and make into dough (keep it soft) .
  • keep it covered for 5-10mins
  • Divide the dough into small balls.
  • In a low flame,fry the balls untill golden brown.
  • Add those balls to the sugar syrup.
  • Sprinkle Cashew powder on the top.
  • Leave it overnight for best result.
