Zero Oil Baked Gulab Jamun

Am starting my third week of blogging marathon, as usual i'll be running my three days blogging marathon with an incredible theme, i got hooked to this week's theme immediately,yep i didnt even hesitated a second coz this week's blogging marathon's theme is going to be Deep fried snacks being healthy by baking or steaming. For me sweets, can be also served for snacks and we love specially gulab jamuns for our snacks or for our desserts when served simply with few scoops of icecream. When i choosed this theme, the first thing came to my mind is obviously gulab jamuns, i wanted to make them either by baking or cooking through paniyaram pan.

Finally i went for baking, i used store bought gulab jamun mix for making this jamuns easily. Since i dont know the final result i went for making a small batch and the baking time took just 15 minutes for me, meanwhile i prepared my sugar syrup and keep aside to get cool completely.Once they came out of the oven,these jamuns were bit hard but when soaked to the sugar syrup they turned out super soft within few minutes and taste as like the deep fried ones.Give a try friends, you will truly enjoy this zero oil gulab jamun for the sure.Check out the other marathoners running this 18th edition of blogging marathon here.


1cup Gulab Jamun mix (store bought)
1/4cup Water (for kneading)
1cup Sugar
1+1/2cups Water (for syrup)
1no Cinnamon stick
Few saffron strands
1/2tsp Cardamom powder
Few chopped nuts

Take the jamun mix in a bowl, gradually add the water and make a soft dough,keep aside for 5minutes.

Meanwhile take the sugar with one and half cup of water,bring to boil. Now add the cinnamon stick,cardamom powder and saffron strands,cook fro few minutes,put off the stove and keep aside.

Let the sugar syrup gets cool completely.Preheat the oven to 300F.

Make tiny balls from the dough, arrange over a baking sheet lined over a baking tray.

Bake for 15-20minutes, by turning the baking jamuns twice in between else they will turn dark brown to one side while the other side will stay white.

Now soak the baked jamuns to the already prepared sugar syrup. 

Sprinkle few chopped nuts while serving.
