Gulab Jamun can be prepared in many different ways. However, the easiest and quickest way to make soft, melt in the mouth, dry fruits and saffron stuffed Gulab Jamun at home that tastes as good as ones made from Khoya
is by using the ready mixes like ones from Gits, MTR, Ashirwaad etc. Preparing Gulab Jamun with ready mix not only reduces the preparation time but also allows you to learn the delicate cooking skill of having the right sugar syrup thickness, dough consistency and deep frying jamuns over medium-low flame which are crucial cooking steps for making perfect Gulab Jamuns at home (all these tricks are explained in detail as part of directions). The delectable filling of dry fruits and saffron gives Gulab Jamuns prepared with this recipe a “Shahi” touch (royal look and flavor) that you usually only get to see in the ones bought from sweet stores.
We have tried many different brands of Gulab Jamun ready mixes but our favorite is the Gits brand and is used in this recipe, however you can replace it with any well known brand’s ready mix available in your grocery store.
