Here we have my favorite Indian sweet with a Caribbean twist, goolab jamoon. The fragrant, rich dough is heavenly. It’s the second sweet that I learned make from my mama *grandmother*. Now I’ve visited a couple Indian restaurants in the US and whenever I order the goolab jamoon I get something totally different! It’s these round balls soaked in syrup. Which leads me to believe that the recipe must have changed on its way to the Caribbean from India.
Nevertheless both are deliciously sweet and I can easily eat them all in one sitting 😂😂
1 cup butter
4 cups flour
1 tsp ground cardamom
1/2 cup powdered milk
1 can condensed milk
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 cup oil for frying
2 cups white sugar
1 tsp grated ginger
4 cups water
1. Rub butter into the flour, cardamom and powdered milk until crumbly
2. Add the other milks to the flour and knead lightly to combine. * Or use a food processor with dough blade*
3. Form almond shapes about 2 inches long and deep fry until golden brown
4. Boil sugar, ginger and water to a thick syrup (it should spin a thread when the spoon is raised)
5. Pour syrup over the chief goolab jamoon and stir continuously until the sugar crystallizes .

Chocolate chip cookie brownies in the middle of the day? Yeah… that’s how I roll … and that’s also why my jeans don’t fit… but I don’t care! Who needs pants anyway!
I would like to thank the lovely people at Betty Crocker for creating this marvellous invention! You make my afternoon chocolate cravings so much better! 🙂
I love making cookies! I may not be very good at it but I give it an honest try! Cookies help me to build patience… which I really don’t have ha!
The best part of cookies for me, is watching people inhale them in 2 seconds after you spent an hour creating each one! *not being sarcastic at all* 😀
