Gulab Jamoon

Happy Valentine's Day.. Hope you all had a fun filled day.... What did I do for valentine's day??? Did I hear someone say that??:):) It was a pretty regular day. Nothing out of the ordinary. Got a little miffed at dear hubby for not getting me anything.:):) Very late in the night he says he has to run some errand that cant wait and comes back with potted pink carnations :) I was surprised and thrilled. What did I cook??? Was anyone thinking this??. Even if you were not here comes the answer. Made gulab jamoons. Not the Indian store mix variety. Here comes the recipe Ingredients Dry Milk powder - 3 cups Bisquick or any other pancake mix - 1cup Heavy whipping cream - 1/2 pint Oil- Enough to deep fry Sugar - 3 cups water - 2 cups. Method

1. Mix milk powder and pancake mix with heavy whipping cream. It forms a crumbly mixture. Leave it for about 15 minutes.

2. Make syrup with sugar and water and once it turns golden in color, turn the heat to a low setting.

3. Make firm round balls of the mix. Make sure there are no cracks in the balls you make.

4. Heat the oil in a kadai and let it heat and then turn the heat to medium and let oil cool a little.

5. Fry the balls till they are golden. Cool them a little and add to the syrup.

Gulab jamoons are ready to eat.
