Gulab Jamun Ki Sabzi is a delicious Rajasthani Curry which is popular in Jodhpur. It is best served with roti or steamed rice. Here is how to make Gulab Jamun ki Sabzi.
I love the soft and yummy Gulab Jamuns. In fact, from childhood I would never wait the Jamuns to be dipped in the sugar syrup. The fried balls are enough to tempt me. Trust me, they taste great even before they are sweetened after being immersed in sugar syrup.
The same is passed to my little one, who enjoys Jamuns in various other recipes. My mom knows I love the Khoya balls hot straight from the wok, and would reserve a couple of them for me. I learnt this recipe of Gulab Jamun Ki Sabzi Recipe from her, and still remember how it became an instant hit when I tried it while my friends turned up the other day.
Just like Khoya Matar Makhana and Achari Chole, It has now become my favourite to make whenever I have guests at home. Wondering what else the Khoya can be offering you? Here is a simple and less time consuming, yet rich gravy for your rotis and naans.
Tired off the regular sabzis or gravies for the flat breads? The same thing triggered me to share the Gulab Jamun recipe with all. No, you would not be using the sweet jamuns, but skip the step of sugar syrup bath for these lovely and tempting Khoya balls. Fewer ingredients, and more importantly those that would be found on the kitchen shelf always are used here.
If you can grab some Khoya, and have all-purpose flour, and the regular kitchen masala powders ready, you can immediately give it a go. Here is how to make Gulab Jamun Ki Sabzi.
