Bread Gulab Jamun Recipe - Instant Gulab Jamun | Diwali Sweets Recipes

BGulab Jamun Recipe
Gulab Jamun / Gulab Jamoon is  basically a cheese based dessert traditionally made with khoya. When I saw this easy jamun recipe made using bread I loved the idea as it was quick with easy available ingredient that is bread.Also I was not confident in trying the khoya jamun directly as this is the first time I making my own jamun at home....I remember only once trying jamun with instant jamun mix that too with the help of amma.
I have many readers requesting for the jamun made with khoya,I will sure post the traditional khoya gulab jamun soon, mark my words yes soon :)

The term gulab jamun comes from Persian words gol (rose) and ab (water), referring to the rosewater-scented syrup, and jamun from an Indian fruit with a similar size and shape...(Reference : Wikipedia)

Easy Bread Gulab Jamun

My Notes:

  • Make sure you roll the balls smoothly at the same time not too tight. Dont apply pressure while rolling else the center part will not get cooked and will be hard while eating.
  • Even plain bread can be used but use unsalted bread for best results.
  • Make sure you keep in low flame while cooking the jamuns as it may get burnt easily.If the oil is too hot, then the jamuns may turn brown faster but it may not have cooked inside especially the center part.
  • As milk is added this keeps well only for 2 days(refrigerated).
  • I added milkpowder just for extra flavour, but its purely optional.
  • Fry only till deep golden brown, not too dark.
  • You can even add a tiny pinch of saffron into the sugar syrup but I like the rose essence flavour more.Garnish with any nuts of your choice.
