This is an awesome sweet from the Indian Culinary.Most of you will be very much familiar
with the sweet Gulab jamun .This too has the same taste,but this has nuts when you bite
into it.In the normal process of making,only white sugar is used,and the color will be
different.This time i made it with brown sugar,and the taste was so good that my
household thought i bought it from the sweet shop.That too is a compliment ….Anyway
let’s get into the recipe.
1 cup plain flour(maida)
100 gms khova/mawa (unsweetened)
1/4 cup curd/yoghurt
a pinch of salt
1/2 tsp.soda bicarbonate
oil for frying
FOR THE SYRUP
2-2.5 cups brown sugar
2.5-3 cups water.
FOR THE FILLING
Few mixed nuts(pistachios,cashewnuts,melon seeds or any of your choice)
Add the yoghurt and the soda into a wide bowl ,and beat these two ingredients well for 5
minutes.Next add the khova and beat for another 10 minutes.Add the rest of the
ingredients and bind to a soft dough,and set aside, till you prepare the syrup.
Put the sugar and water and boil till sugar melts.Heat oil in a deep frying pan.
Divide the dough into sizes you like.Flatten each portion in your palm .fill a little portion
of mixed nuts,seal and make balls.Deep fry till golden brown in medium heat.If the oil gets
heated,reduce the flame to simmering mode or switch off,and resume,otherwise the
centre will not be cooked.Drop the fried pedhas into the syrup,and soak for minimum 2
