           Fudge Balls in Cardamom Syrup (Gulab Jamin)

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 1/2 cups non-fat dry milk powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons vegetable shortening
1 teaspoon baking powder
9 tablespoons plain yogurt
For the Syrup
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
3 green cardamom pods -- crushed lightly
or one 3-inch piece cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon rosewater or more -- to taste
Shortening to fill a wide pan to
a depth of 2 1/2 inches

Mix the milk powder and flour in a bowl. Add the shortening and, with
fingers, rub it in until it is well blended. Add the baking powder and mix

Add the yogurt a couple of tablespoons at a time and mix with fingertips
until the mixture looks like a very stick-pastry dough. Scrape the paste
from fingers, pat the dough into a ball, cover and let rest for 10 minutes.

While the dough is resting, make the syrup. Mix the sugar, water and
cardamom in a shallow pan and bring to a boil. Cook the syrup without
stirring, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat, stir in the
rosewater then pour the syrup into a large shallow dish such as a baking
dish that can accommodate 16 gulab jamun balls in a single layer.

Knead the dough very lightly for 1 minute and divide mixture into 16 equal
portions. Roll the pieces into crack-free balls and place them on a plate.

Heat the shortening in a large wide pan over medium heat until just hot
(325F.). Slip the balls, one at a time into the hot fat. The temperature of
the fat will automatically fall to 250F. to 275F. when 8 to 10 balls are
added. Maintain the temperature by regulating the heat between medium and
medium-low. The balls may be cooked all at once or in two batches, as long
as they have enough room to fry in the fat without touching one another.
The balls should be cooking in fat surrounded by tiny bubbles and barely
sizzling. Fry the balls, turning them carefully until they are puffed and
walnut brown (about 20 minutes). Do not rush or else the dough will not be
cooked through. Also the distinct fried fudge flavor will not develop if
they are cooked at a higher temperature. Take them out with a slotted spoon
and put them in the syrup. Baste the balls, turning often, so they soak up
as much syrup as possible.

Let the gulab jamun soak for at least two hours at room temperature before
serving. For best results let them soak for eight hours to a day. Serve
warm, at room temperature, or cold.
