This is the picture of “Gulab Jamun ” I took this picture after I finished making this dessert. I had invited my daughter’s co-worker, who was kind enough to take care of our felines for a week, while we were in Montreal.As you can see there are quite a few.I intended to give him the remaining after our dinner. He chose to take a few. I took some with us and froze the ones left.

Here is the recipe for my dessert.

Ingredients:

  1. 2 1/2 full cream milk powder( you can use skim milk powder, which is what I used)
  2. 1 cup self-raising flour(Bisquik)
  3. 11/2 tespoon soda
  4. 250 g cream cheese package
  5. 2/3 cup milk

  7. oil for deep frying
  8. Syrup

  10. 4 cups sugar
  11. 1 tablespoon rose water optional
  12. Method: Combine milk powder,sifted flour and soda in an medium bowl, rub in cheese until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.Using hand knead mixture in bowl, gradually adding enough milk until mixture holds its own shape and is slightly sticky to touch.Moisten hands with extra milk, roll level tablespoons of mixture into 30 sausage shapes.melt ghee(or clarified butter ) with enough oil to make depth of 5cm in medium pan
