To make the syrup

  • Heat the sugar in 300 ml water on a medium/low heat until the sugar has dissolved.
  • Add the cardamom pods and simmer for a further 2 minutes.
  • Set aside.

To prepare the gulab jamun

  • Mix the milk powder, baking powder, flour and semolina with approx. 100 ml milk.
  • Knead into a pliable dough. If necessary add a little more milk.
  • Divide the dough into 24 small balls and cover with a damp tea towel.
  • Heat the oil - you can tell when it is hot enough because bubble will appear on a wooden spoon held in the fat.
  • Fry the balls for 2-4 minutes until golden brown.
  • Remove with a draining spoon and place on kitchen paper to dry.
  • Add the rose water to the cool syrup.
  • Place the fried dough balls in the syrup and steep for at least 30 minutes - if not overnight.
  • Serve the balls on plates with some of the syrup and garnish with pistachios and rose petals.
