  • Milk powder - 1 cup
  • All purpose powder/Maida - 1/4 cup
  • Baking powder - pinch
  • Ghee or butter - 1/8 cup
  • Milk - 1/4 cup
  • Sugar - 1 cup
  • Water - 1 1/4 cup
  • Cardamon powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Chopped pistachio and almonds - 1/8 cup
  • In a bowl, mix milk powder, maida, baking powder, ghee, nicely, knead this into dough using milk. The dough will be sticky intially, don't worry milk powder will absorb all the milk. Remember the dough should not be dry. If it is dry, add little more milk.
  • Make small balls from the dough. Heat oil and ghee in a pan (1:1 ratio), reduce the flame and fry the jamun balls, take care not to burn the balls, cook slowly because sometimes jamun doesn't cook well inside.
  • Meanwhile, add sugar and water in a pan, heat until sugar dissolves, add cardamon powder and chopped nuts, remove from heat. Drop the jamun balls in the sugar solution, let it rest for at least for 20 minutes. Serve cold or hot, with or without ice cream.
