i have posted quite a few gulab jamun recipes till now, but i personally felt making suji gulab jamun is much easier compared to others. the potential issue with milk-based gulab jamun is the crack you get while shaping it and eventually while deep frying it. in addition, you may have to add maida with milk powder or khoya/mawa and this can be a concern for many. but luckily with this recipe of suji ka gulab jamun, you are negating all those problems. moreover, once the gulab jamun is ready you would not be able to distinguish if it is made with sooji or with khoya. well if you are addicted to the milk-based gulab jamun, you may find the difference, otherwise, it can be challenging to spot any.

anyway, i would like to few tips, suggestions and variations for this suji ka gulab jamun recipe. firstly, i have added a small amount of milk powder to semolina while preparing the gulab jamun dough. adding milk powder adds nice smooth texture, but is completely optional and can be skipped. secondly, while shaping the jamuns i would heavily recommend to make it slightly bigger compared to the traditional one. this would ensure the sugar syrup would be perfectly soaked up and absorbed. lastly, fry these jamuns on a low to medium flame so that it is evenly cooked.
