Gulab Jamun Ki Sabji is a delicious Rajasthani Curry which is popular in Jodhpur. It is best served with roti or steamed rice. Here is how to make it.
I love the soft and yummy Gulab Jamuns.
In fact, since childhood I would never wait for 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 learned this recipe of Gulab Jamun Ki Sabji Recipe from her, and can still remember how it became an instant hit when I tried it while my friends turned up the other day.
Gulab Jamun ki Sabji is a dish from Rajasthan.
You won’t find it in many restaurants, but it is still made in homes.
On our recent trip to Jodhpur, we tried this sabji at one of the restaurants near the bus station and relived the taste of childhood.
Just like Achari Chole, It has now become my favorite 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 flatbreads? 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 Sabji.
