Gulab Jamun:

Gulab Jamun is a delicious sweet made from milk solids, traditionally enjoyed during festivals and special occasions.

Ingredients:

1 cup milk powder

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

2 tablespoons ghee (clarified butter)

1/4 cup milk

Oil or ghee for deep frying

For the Sugar Syrup:

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 1/2 cups water

A few saffron strands (optional)

1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder

Instructions:

In a mixing bowl, combine milk powder, all-purpose flour, and baking powder.

Add ghee and milk gradually to form a soft dough. Knead gently until smooth.

Divide the dough into small portions and roll them into smooth balls without any cracks.

Heat oil or ghee in a deep pan over medium heat. Fry the balls until golden brown, turning them gently to ensure even cooking.

Meanwhile, prepare the sugar syrup by heating water and sugar in a saucepan. Add saffron strands and cardamom powder. Simmer until the sugar dissolves and the syrup slightly thickens.

Once the balls are fried, drain and immediately immerse them in the warm sugar syrup. Let them soak for at least 1-2 hours before serving.

Serve warm or at room temperature. Garnish with chopped nuts if desired.

Coconut Ladoo:

Coconut Ladoo is a simple and delicious sweet made with coconut and condensed milk.

Ingredients:

2 cups desiccated coconut

1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk

1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder

A pinch of saffron strands (optional)

Chopped nuts for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

In a non-stick pan, toast the desiccated coconut over low heat until it turns light golden brown and aromatic. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.

In the same pan, pour the condensed milk and add the toasted coconut. Mix well.

Cook the mixture on low heat, stirring continuously, until it thickens and starts to leave the sides of the pan. This will take about 5-7 minutes.

Add cardamom powder and saffron strands, and mix until well combined.

Remove the mixture from the heat and let it cool slightly until it is safe to handle.

Grease your palms with a little ghee or butter and shape the mixture into small balls or ladoos.

If desired, roll the ladoos in chopped nuts for garnish.

Allow the coconut ladoos to cool completely before serving. Store in an airtight container.

Enjoy these delicious Indian sweets with your loved ones!
