BREAD GULAB-JAMUN

INGREDIENTS
8-10 white breads
1 tbsp wheat flour (Maida)
1/2 cup milk (normal temperature)
1/4 cup cottage cheese (Paneer)
1/2 cup nuts (cashew-nut, pistachio)
1 tsp cardamom powder

FOR SUGAR SYRUP
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 tsp cardamom powder (elachi powder)


METHOD
Take bread slices and cut the edges. Take milk in a big bowl, dip bread slice in it and squeeze out the excess milk. Grind together paneer and bread to make smooth dough. Add 1 tbsp flour and knead dough with light hands to give a smooth texture. Don't over do it or else gulab jamuns will become hard.

Make small balls. Fill chopped nuts and cardamom powder in the centre, close it and give it a round shape.

Heat oil, it should not be too hot. Deep fry the balls on low flame. Take it on absorbent paper and immediately put in sugar syrup.

For sugar syrup
Boil water and sugar till sugar dissolves completely. Strain the water in stainer or muslin cloth to remove the scum. Keep aside.

Keep it aside for 1 hour so that it can absorb the sugar. Serve hot.

MAKE SURE MILK IS PROPERLY SQUEEZED OUT. IF DOUGH IS TOO STICKY ADD MORE FLOUR.
