Gulab jamun with milk powder

i prepared these gulab jamun on holi. Since here in US we don't get khova(mava) ,as we get in India. so i tried these from milk powder. it turned out almost like mava one.
  • Milk powder-1cup
  • Maida-2tbsp
  • Rava (semolina)-2tbsp
  • Cream -3tbsp
  • Ghee-4 tbsp
  • Baking powder-a pinch
  • Sugar-1 cup
  • Water-1cup
  • Cardamom powder-1/4tsp
  • Coconut flakes –for garnishing
  • Oil or ghee for frying
Mix all the dry ingredients milk powder, Maida, rava and baking powder nicely.
Now add cream and melted ghee little by little and kneads soft and smooth dough.
Cover it with paper towel for 15 to 20 minutes.
In the meantime mix the sugar and water boil it till sugar dissolve completely
And simmer for 5 minutes. Add cardamom powder into the syrup and keep aside.
Make a small size of balls out of the dough. Make sure there are no cracks into ball.
Heat oil on medium flame and fry the balls till golden brown.fry only few at a time.
keep on paper towel for sometime,Now add them sugar syrup.
Rest them for half an hour in sugar syrup.
Serve it with coconut flakes on top.
