Double Celebrations with sinful Kala Jamun !!! Reposted





Yes, we are celebrating two events here...First of all India Republic Day....wishing you all a very Happy Republic Day !!!! and the second being the birthday of our young  adorable princess Hayley !!!! so i decide to make something sweet what she loves...not only her but everyone....
Kala Jamun are dark brown gulab jamuns made from paneer and khoya and then deep fried and coated with sugar syrup..very similar way the you make Gulab Jamun, but the kala Jamun has that unique flavour..which is not very soft like GJ..it has got slightly grainy texture yet very rich..

Delicious  - KALA JAMUN

For the kala jamuns

2 cups (250 g) mava (khoya, Milk solid) grated

2 cups (250 g ) Paneer (Indian cottage cheese) grated

5 tbsp plain flour (maida)

1/2 tsp Bicarbo Soda

1/4 teaspoon cardamom (elaichi) powder

1-2 tbsp milk to knead a dough



 

For the sugar syrup

3 cups sugar a few saffron strands (optional)

Oil for deep frying

For the sugar syrup :-

1. In a large pan, combine the sugar with 1 litre of water and bring to a boil.

2. Simmer over a slow flame till the syrup is 1 string consistency.

3. Remove any impurities which float on top of the syrup using a slotted spoon.

4. Add the saffron if desired and keep the syrup warm.

Mehtod:-

1. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients, mix well and knead into a firm dough with milk.

2. Divide this mixture into 25 equal portios and roll into rounds. These should have no cracks on the surface as otherwise the jamuns will crack while frying.

3. Deep fry in oil over a medium flame till the jamuns are dark brown in colour (for approx 10 to 12 minutes).

4. Drain and immerse in the warm sugar syrup. Soak for 30 minutes.

5. Garnishe with dessicated coconut coating and serve..

at my house doesn't stay for very long those sinful Kala Jamun...also i want to say a big thank you to Devi Meyyappan , who shared an award with me..i am very happy that she thought about me...this time i want to share this award with everyone who visits me here...so please accept the award...Enjoy the day and  remember those people who gave up their life for beautiful country India......

Vande Matram !!!!!
