Street Food - Gulab Jamun

Also Known As:
Gulab Jamun, Gulab Jaman



Average Price Per Serving:
SGD $1 - $5



Description:
Gulab Jamun originated from Afghanistan, but is now a popular dessert / sweet throughout both North India and South India. Gulab Jamun consists of deep fried dough balls in a warm scented syrup.


The dough balls in Gulab Jamun are traditionally made with milk powder, specifically buffalo milk, combined with unsalted butter / clarified butter (Ghee), plain white flour / maida refined wheat flour, baking soda, water and whole milk. The batter is rolled into balls and deep fried, but at a low temperature. This makes the outside slightly crisp, while the inside is still soft and spongy, with the consistency of cake.

The warm scented syrup for Gulab Jamun is made with sugar, water, cardamom seeds and rose water. Some hawkers also include honey, saffron or screwpine leaves (Pandan).

Traditionally, Gulab Jamun is served garnished with chopped nuts, normally pistachio or almonds. Sometimes, Gulab Jamun is served garnished with fresh cream, ice cream, or raisins.

Gulab Jamun is the most popular Indian dessert in Singapore, and is commonly found on menus in both North Indian and South Indian stalls.

These are the top 3 stalls which I feel serve the best Gulab Jamun in Singapore.
