Easy Gulab Jamun-Bread Jamun

30 Oct

When ever you are in a mood to  eat Gulab Jamun and are out of the mix or do not have the time to make the whole thing from scratch here is a simple and the easiest way to make it.Hardly takes a few mts  and outcome is terribly good for the time,effort and raw material spent.

This particular recipe uses the most easily available food item in every home today :THE BREAD.I have made this from both  milk bread and whole wheat bread and they are both super.No, this is not my original recipe 😛 Many months ago I had read this while scouting around for something easy to make when I had bumped across this and was laying passive in my head to be used on a day like this.


  1. 4-5 slices of bread.
  2. 1 tsp cardamom powder.
  3. 1 cup Sugar
  4. 1/2 water
  5. Badam/raisin sliced(optional)
  1. Cut each slice of bread off its side .
  2. Take a bowl of warm water,dip each slide of bread completely in it for about 5sec.
  3. Take it out and lightly squeeze the water off it.
  4. Make 3 portions of each slice.
  5. In the center of each portion place raisin or badam(this is my twist-you can avoid it if you please) and bring the bread together to form a ball.
  6. In a pan heat oil on medium and fry these balls by gently tossing it around to evenly brown it.
  7. Meanwhile put the sugar and water mentioned in the list above in a vessel and bring to a rapid boil.Simmer the stove and let it boil for an additional 5mts.
  8. Add cardamom powder and switch off stove.
  9. Put the fried bread balls into hot/warm syrup(if you put in hot syrup the jamuns will have absorbed the sugar by the time it cool down -faster easy time,if you put it in warm syrup it takes little more time).
  10. Serve.
