    • Take a large bowl and sieve milk powder, maida (refined flour), semolina and baking soda and mix well.
    • Add 2 tablespoon milk and 2 tablespoon curd to it and knead it by hand to make a soft dough.
    • Add 1 teaspoon of ghee and knead again. Soft dough for Gulab Jamun is ready for frying.
    • Meanwhile check the sugar syrup, if you get 1 string syrup, then add rose water (rose water) to it. Keep boiling for 2 - 3 minutes. Do not make too much thick syrup. Turn off the gas.
    • Take a small portion of the dough and make a small ball from it. The ball should be smooth and there are no cracks or line in the ball otherwise Gulab Jamun will crack while frying.
    • Similarly, make all the balls from the dough and keep them in a plate.
    • You can also fill the stuffing if you want. When making the balls, fill finely chopped pistachios or raisins. Make a ball and press it flat between your palm, fill the stuffing of pistachios or raisins and cover it with dough and make a smooth ball.
    • Heat the ghee for deep frying in a pan on medium heat. When the ghee gets medium hot, reduce the heat to low and add raw gulab jamun to the ghee.
    • Gently stir the gulab jamun so that it does not crack, and fry it evenly from all sides. Fry the gulab jamuns till they turn golden brown, while gently stirring.
    • After frying well, take them out of the ghee using a perforated spoon and place them on top of the pan so that the excess ghee comes out and transfers them to the hot sugar syrup.
    • Gently stir them into the sugar syrup and keep them in the syrup for about 20 minutes.
    • Delicious Gulab Jamun is ready. Transfer them to a bowl and garnish with chopped pistachios. Serve them with or without syrup.

    The hot Gulab Jamun with cold Rabdi tastes incredible.
