Easy Bread Gulab Jamun Recipe
Bread Gulab Jamun is a simpler and easier version of the traditional Gulab Jamun; Indian dessert that can be made in just few mins.
Prep Time 3 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 23 minutes
Servings 11 Gulab Jamuns
- 8 nos White Bread Slices
- 6 tbsp Milk
- 1 cup (or 200 gms) Sugar
- 1.5 cup (or 300 mL ) Water
- 1/2 tsp (or 4 nos) Cardamom pods
- few strands of saffron (optional)
Start by making the sugar syrup. For which in a saucepan combine together sugar and water and bring it to a boil on low-med flame (around 5-7 mins)
Once it comes to a boil, add the cardamom powder and saffron strands if using. Lower the flame and cook this for a further 8-10 mins. Switch off the gas once thickened and cover with a lid.
Slice the corners of the bread. (Do not throw it away; you can use it for making bread upma or just make crumbs store in an air-tight container for later use).
Blend it into fine crumbs in your mixer jar without adding any water.
Now add a tbsp of milk at a time to the bread crumbs and combine everything into a smooth and soft dough. Knead it well say for about 3-4 mins.
Pinch out small sized balls out of it and give it a round shape without any cracks with an even smooth surface. I could make about 11 balls from 8 bread slices.
Fry them in hot oil over medium flame until golden brown from all sides. Once fried; dunk them in the prepared sugar syrup for 3-4 hours.
Enjoy the gulab jamun cold or hot as per your liking.
