Milkio’s Grass-fed ghee

Gulab Jamun with Milkio Ghee

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, and Bangladesh, as well as Myanmar.

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 the finger is similar in shape and secondly this recipe uses melted milk (Try my own Gulab Jamun with pure ghee recipe).


1. 3 cups sugar
2. 6 cups water
3. 1 tbsp. cardamom powder
4. 2 tbsps. Rose water
5. 3 cups powdered milk
6. 1 and a 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
7. 1 and a 1/2 tsp baking powder,
8. 1 cup heavy cream,
9. 1 cup Milkio cultured organic ghee for deep frying


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!
