Because It’s Monday! #11 & Doodlewash Dinner: Gulab Jamun

thumb_IMG_0984_1024

Gulab jamun, or gulaab jamun, is a milk-solids-based sweet mithai, popular in Indian cuisine. It’s my all time favorite dessert, by any chance if you visit any Indian Restaurant you should definitely try this dish. I’m sure you will love it! 🙂 So on the occasion of Doodlewash Dinner I would love to bring this Indian Dessert on 5.5*8.5 watercolor! Hope you’ll enjoy it!

It is made mainly from milk solids, traditionally from freshly curdled milk. It is often garnished with dried nuts like almonds to enhance flavour according to Middle Eastern tradition.

In India, milk solids are prepared by heating milk over a low flame for a long time until most of the water content has evaporated. These milk solids, known as khoya in India (similar to cheese such as ricotta), are kneaded into a dough, sometimes with a pinch of flour, and then shaped into small balls and deep-fried at a low temperature of about 148 °C. The balls are then soaked in a light sugary syrup flavored with green cardamom and rose water, saffron.

Have a nice week ahead! Happy Monday!
