May the festival of lights bring peace, joy and good health to one and all!Happy Diwali
Diwali means sweets,sweets and more sweets!Oh yea and some savory snacks too :)
I had a brain wave a few days ago to try bread gulab jamuns.When i looked on some blogs, there were ladies who've already tried this earlier.Tomorrow is Diwali and I'm in the festive mood.And the ever hot Chennai has finally cooled down with the gracious monsoons!
Preparation Time : 1 hour
Makes about 20 jamuns
To make this you need
Bread slices 6 (crust and all, you can remove the crust if you want)
Milk less than half a cup(boiled and cooled)
Sugar 1 cup
Water 1 and half cup
Cloves,cardamoms 2 each
Yellow food color/Saffron a pinch
Ghee to apply on the palms while rolling the balls
Almonds slivered 1 or 2
Oil to deep fry
- Tear the bread slices into bits and add just enough milk to make a nice smooth dough which you can roll into balls to make the jamuns.
- Make balls out of all the dough.
- Fry the balls and let it cool.
- Pour the sugar and water in a heavy bottom pan and heat it until you get a 1 string consistency.
- Add the cloves and cardamoms, yellow color/saffron now.
- Once the balls are cooled add them to the syrup.
- Garnish with slivered almonds and serve hot or cold.
Have a safe and happy Diwali :)
