How to make Bread Gulab Jamun
Trim the Bread slices on all sides. Reserve the sides.
In a bowl, take the milk, soak bread slices one by one and squeeze out the milk completely. Once you are done with all, knead everything together by adding milk powder and cooking soda.
The dough will end up being sticky, so add the ghee and knead again. Rest for 5 mins. Grease your palm with ghee and pinch out small balls.
Once you are done making all the balls, heat the kadai with oil and ghee. Deep fry in batches till you get evenly browned jamuns.
Meanwhile make the Sugar Syrup by boiling sugar with water, remove impurrities if any.
Cook for 7 - 10 mins, till you get a glossy syrup. Add the cardamon, rose essence and saffron.
When the jamuns are fried, drop them into the syrup.
Let it soak and then serve.
