Ghee made Gulab Jamun is a delectable dessert.

Milkio organic ghee is apt for cooking all types of sweets and desserts like Gulab Jamun: its high smoking point is the cause to call it a safe cooking oil.

Gulab jamun is a milk-solid-based sweet from the Indian subcontinent and a type of mithai, popular in India, Nepal, Pakistan, the Maldives, Bangladesh, and Myanmar.

Gulab Jamun can be prepared with khoyan milk too. However, in modern making, Gulam Jamum with powder milk is more popular.  If you try  this milk and ghee recipe at home, it is always better to try it with good quality milk powder.


For readers who have never heard of Gulab Jamun, it can be classified as a donut. Traditionally made with flour and powdered milk it was then fried and finally added to the sweet rose syrup. The South African Indian version differs in two respects, firstly sweets look like inger in shape, and secondly this recipe uses melted milk .


  • Sugar-3 cups
  • Water-6 cups
  • Cardamom powder-1 tbsp.
  • Rose water-4. 2 tbsps.
  • Powdered milk-3 cups
  • All-purpose flour-1 and a 1/2 cups
  • Baking powder- 1 and a 1/2 tsp
  • Heavy cream-1 cup
  • Milkio cultured organic ghee for deep frying-1 cup

Instructions: How to prepare Gulam Jamum with ghee?

  • Mix the water and sugar in a deep pan and boil till all the sugar is dissolved. Turn off the flame and add the cardamom powder and rose water. Set it aside.
  • Mix the powdered milk, all-purpose flour and baking powder well.
  • Add a little of the thickened cream at a time to them and mold to make a dough that is medium soft but not sticky.
  • Kept the rest of the cream aside.
  • Just add a little at a time until you reach the consistency of dough you are after.

The success of this dessert depends almost entirely on how well you mold the dough. Once the dough is ready, divide it into walnut sized balls and roll between slightly greased palms till smooth.

Any cracks will show up even more lately and could lead to the ‘milk balls’ cracking as they are being fried… not desirable!

  • Take all the time you need over this step to get it right.
  • While making the balls, heat the Milkio cultured organic grass fed ghee for deep frying in a wide pan on a low to medium flame. Fry the dumplings, stirring often to brown on all sides.
  • Do not cook on very high heat as the dumplings will burn on the outside and remain raw inside!
  • When cooked, drain (with a slotted spoon), remove the dumplings from the Milkio ghee and transfer it immediately into the sugar syrup.
  • Repeat the above steps until all the dumplings are cooked and added to the syrup.
  • Allow the dumplings to soak in the syrup for at least 2 hours before serving.
  • At this point they can either be removed from the syrup and served, or you can serve with the syrup.


Why Milkio Ghee is a better cooking oil for Gulab Jamun?

You have to fry Gulab Jamum dumplings in ghee, which is a high heat cooking. As milkio grass-fed ghee is high in smoking point (485 degrees F), it is a safer cooking oil for high heat cooking like deep frying.

Milkio cultured organic grass-fed ghee works as a natural taste enhancer for the gulab jamun you are preparing.  The sweet dessert will taste more flaorful with the use of Milkio ghee.
