Bread Gulab jamun


Ingredients

6 milk/sweet bread slices
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup water
Oil/Ghee to fry

Dip the bread slices in milk and squeeze it out completely. You can either cut out the corners of the bread or let it remain. Knead it into a dough and make balls of it. Add milk if required to make the dough. I opted for the less fat version by frying it in the paniyaram pan with few drops of oil. If you are not calorie conscious you can deep fry the balls in oil/ghee.


Heat the sugar and water to a sticky consistency. Add cardamom powder to the syrup and soak the bread balls in it for about 1/2 hr. Serve

* Since these gulab jamuns wont get bigger while frying like the normal gulab jamuns, you need to make a little bigger balls than usual.

@ Shireen..I tried a few with brown bread slices too but then the salt in the bread makes the taste different..the ones made with milk/sweet bread were more tastier
