Kala Jamun Recipe
Recipe Type

For Kala Jamuns
• 2 cups Khoya, grated
• 5 tbsp Plain Flour
• 1/4 tsp Cardamom Powder
• 2 tbsp Sugar

For Sugar Syrup
• 3 cups Sugar
• Few Saffron Strands (optional)
How to make Kala Jamun:
To make the sugar syrup, combine sugar and a litre of water in a large bowl and bring it to a boil.
Once boiled, lower the flame and simmer it until the syrup is 1 string consistency.
Add saffron and keep the syrup warm.
In a separate bowl, combine khoya, plain flour, cardamom powder and sugar. Mix well and knead into firm dough, without using any water.
Now, make small round balls. Make sure that the surface of the bowls have no cracks, else the jamuns would crack while frying.
Deep fry the jamuns over medium flame, until they get dark brown color.
Drain them and immerse in the warm sugar syrup for about 30 minutes. Kala jamuns are ready to be gorged upon!!
