Easy to make delicious Jamuns made with homemade or store bought Paneer. Quick and simple to make yummy dessert! Most of us get store-bought Jamun Mix which makes our work easier, but this Paneer Jamun is very simple to make with less hassle and no big expertise needed. With small kids at home, mostly every week I get Paneer from the Indian Store as most of the kids love Paneer! Usually I make Paneer gravies, last week I made Paneer Kheer and my kids loved it and this week its Paneer Gulab Jamun!

  1. If you are using a store bought Paneer, take out from refrigerator and bring it to room temperature before starting with the recipe. If you are using homemade paneer, then squeeze out the paneer nicely to get rid of all of its moisture
  2. First lets prepare the sugar syrup. Take water and sugar in a sauce pan and stir well. Bring the sugar syrup to boil. Keep boiling the sugar syrup till the syrup is sticky. We don't need to check for string consistency. Switch off the flame and keep this syrup aside
  3. Crumble the paneer and knead it well for 3-4 minutes. Then add baking powder and maida and combine everything well
  4. Make small balls out of this Paneer mixture. Do not roll the ball too hard, we need some air inside balls so that it gets nicely fried inside too in the hot oil
  5. Heat oil/ghee in a heavy bottomed pan. Add 4-5 Jamun balls in a batch and deep fry in low flame till they are golden brown
  6. Take out the fried Jamuns and place it in paper towel for few seconds and add it to sugar syrup. If the sugar syrup is too cool, then warm the syrup before dropping the fried jamun
  7. After adding all fried Jamuns , cover the sauce pan with lid and let the Jamuns sit inside the sugar syrup for atleast 2 hours for the syrup to get incorporated with the Jamuns
  8. Serve the delicious Paneer Gulab Jamun warm or cold and enjoy the dessert!
