Indian Delights

__0889
I decided to try my hand at a traditional Indian Dessert called Gulab Jamuns. These are little round donuts made with a homemade cheese.

The homemade cheese is called Khova. It requires a little extra time to make it fresh, but it is superior to most store bought Khova. I made it by boiling down a gallon of whole milk for 2.5 hours till a thick, sweet curd formed. This was then mixed with flour, formed into balls and cooked.

These little gems are deep fried in a 50/50 mixture of vegetable oil and Ghee. Ghee, which is clarified butter, adds to their delightful richness. The golden brown balls are then soaked in a warm, Saffron and Cardamom sweetened sugar sauce. Yummy! It was worth all the extra effort.
