Wheat Bread Jamun - Raksha Bandhan Wishes

                                       " Wish you a happy Raksha Bandhan Brother "

Siblings Fight, argue, complain to mom.... never ending crazy moments in most of our lives ... those funny and memorable childhood days. And we fought too... everytime our fight started like an India n Pakistan war and ended with 'not talking to each other' but it does not get prolonged, and it takes just a few minutes to start some conversation n crack stupid jokes as if nothing actually happened....Well - apparently the both of us starting expressing our love only when we did part and that too after my wedding....sibling bond becomes very close, affectionate n grows mature ..
Prepared this sweet today for my bro... Virtually enjoi this sweet da and " Happy Raksha Bandhan " my dear Bro'...(Where's my gift???? Am waitin....!!!!)

Ingredients :

1 cup Milk
11 Wheat Bread slices
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup water
2 Elachi, Crushed
Pinch of Saffron
3 Almonds, Grated for Garnishing

Method :

Dip bread slice in a milk, soak for few seconds and squeeze it. Keep seperately.
Repeat the same for remaining slices.
Prepare a soft dough using squeezed bread slices.
Make small balls or flat shape with the dough. ( I have prepared flat shaped jamun's )
Deep fry them in a oil ( medium flame ).
Meanwhile add sugar and water in a bowl and boil it, until it gets one string consistancy.
Remove from flame, add crushed elachi and saffron.
Add all the fried jamuns and let it soak for an hour.
Serve chill with icecream and nuts.

  7. This looks yummy and the preparation is easier than the Jamun mix,as we have to be careful while preparing the dough. Thank you for sharing this. We can even add unsweetened khoa to the soaked bread as this enhances the taste of the Jamun..What do you think Priya?
