A sweet post for all sweets lovers...Bread Gulab Jamun!!

I have been a fan of sweets always and recently I had this opportunity to taste this bread gulab jamun at a friends place.
Loved the idea of using left over sandwich bread slices to make nice dessert.

I tried this recipe twice,first time I tried making this recipe with just plain bread slices with no other ingredient, but somehow it didn't work out.
My second attempt clicked,this time I used Paneer along with slices of bread. This turned out super tasty and soft.

Try out my version of Bread Gulab Jamun and enjoy! Do let me know how it works out for you too!

Bread Gulab Jamun
  • 4 White Sandwich Bread Slices
  • 1/4th Cup,crumbled Paneer / Cottage Cheese
  • a pinch Salt
  • a pinch Sugar
  • a generous pinch Baking Soda
  • 10 Tablespoons Milk
  • as per need(I used Black seedless raisins and cashewnuts) Dry fruits for stuffing
  • Ghee / Oil for frying
  • For Sugar Syrup:
  • 2 Cups Water
  • 2 Cups Sugar
  • a Teaspoon Rose Essence
  • 1 Teaspoon Cardamom Powder
In bowl,add bread slices and Milk(sufficient to make the bread slices soak and mash properly.Make sure you do not add too much milk,as the bread slices after soaking should consume all milk.No milk should be left in bowl).
Let it sit for 2 minutes.
Now, the bread slices have consumed all milk.
Add crumbled paneer,salt,sugar,baking soda to it.
Mash it well to make smooth dough.
Now,pinch the dough to make small balls.
Add the stuffing i.e. dry fruits and close the edges and make small dough balls.
Heat ghee,and deep fry all the jamun balls till done on medium flame. Drain them on paper towel.
Meanwhile,keep sugar syrup ready. In a sacepan,add water and sugar and boil it till thickened. Switch off gas and add rose essence and cardamom powder.
When the jamuns are fried drop them in the syrup and enjoy!!

Prep time: Cook time: Total time: Yield: 4

    • Do not add too much milk.Add milk just enough to soak the bread slices. I used around 10 tablespoons.
    • Stuffing is optional. You can skip it.
    • You can also fry the jamuns in oil.
    • Mash the paneer and bread well to form a smooth dough,as much as possible. The dough will be slightly sticky. Do not add maida or any other flour to make the dough dry.
    • I didn't trim the bread edges, but you can trim the edges and try.
