GULAB JAMUN (Main Deepawali Sweet)

* 1 cup Carnation Milk Powder 
* 1/2 cup all purpose flour 
* 1/2 tsp baking soda 
* 2 tablespoons butter -melted 
* Whole milk just enough to make the dough 

For the Sugar Syrup 
* 2 cups Sugar 
* 1 cup water 
* Oil for frying 

1.Make the dough by combining the milk powder, Bisquick, 
butter. 

2.Add just enough whole milk to make a medium-hard dough. 
Divide
the dough into 18-20 portions. 

3.Make balls by gently rolling each portion between your palms
into a smooth ball. 

4.Place the balls on a plate. Cover with a damp yet dry 
kitchen
towel. 

5.Heat the oil on high and then lower the heat to medium. Slip 
in
the balls into the hot oil/ghee from the side of the pan, one 
by
one. 

6.They will sink to the bottom of the pan, but do not try to 
move
them. Instead, gently shake the pan to keep the balls from
browning on just one side. 

7.After about 5 mins, the balls will rise to the surface. The
Gulab Jamuns should rise slowly to the top if the temperature 
is
just right. 

8.Now they must be gently and constantly agitated to ensure 
even
browning on all sides. 

9.If the temperature of the oil is too high then the gulab 
jamuns
will tend to break. So adjust the temperature to ensure that 
the
gulab jamuns do not break or cook too quickly. 

10.The balls must be fried very slowly under medium 
temperatures.
This will ensure complete cooking from inside and even 
browning. 

*Sugar Syrup *

1.The syrup should be made earlier and kept warm. To make the 
hot
sugar syrup add mix the 2 cups of sugar to 1 cup of water. Add
4-5 cardamom pods, slightly crushed and a few strands of 
"Kesar".
2.Mix with a spoon and then heat at medium heat for 5-10 
minutes
until sugar is all dissolved in water. Do not overheat, that 
will
caramelize the sugar. 
3.Transfer this hot syrup into a serving dish. Keep warm on 
stove. 
4.Add the fried gulab jamuns directly into the warm syrup. 
Leave
gulab jamun balls in sugar syrup overnight for best results. 
5.They can be served warm or at room temperature 

Serve with Cold Ice Cream/Home Made Kulfi.
