Gulab Jamun Gits ready mix is a popular choice for making the decadent sweet Gulab Jamun. This is a classic, traditional Indian mouth-watering dessert made with deep-fried balls of kneaded milk powder or "khoya" dunked in rose or cardamom and saffron flavored sugary syrup. You will find this dessert as a part of any celebration meal in India. There are many different ways to make it.
How to make Gulab Jamun with Gits ready mix
The recipe I'm sharing today uses an instant mix. I use a brand called "Gits". However, there are so many varieties of instant mixes you can find in the Indian grocery and supermarket which you can use. Gits is one of the very popular ones and it has never failed me. The trick to get a perfect Jamun is to make sure there is enough milk or water while kneading and that there are no cracks formed when making a ball. It should also be fried in a very low flame and by turning around gently in the oil. Once they are done, they just need to be immersed in the sugar syrup.
Some prefer to have this delicious dessert warm and some others like it cold with a scoop of vanilla ice cream to go along with it! Happy cooking!
