I don’t know whether it can be called as jamun or not . I had read about this recipe in a magazine and made this immediately . I made this three months back but couldn’t post till today.
As usual jamun is round in shape , it won’t admit to that rule of shape , but taste wise it is equal to other jamuns.
It is simple and easy , can be made with minutes when unexpected guests turn up. Lets move on to the recipe……….
Bread – 2 slices
Sugar – ½ cup
Cardamom powder – a pinch
Oil for frying
Water - ½ cup
Heat oil in a kadai.
Cut the bread slice into four equal pieces.
Deep fry in hot oil till golden brown.
Mix the sugar with water and bring to boil.
Boil till the syrup reaches one string consistency.
Many may know about the one string consistency , but I am sharing here for beginners.
One string consistency – when we place a drop of the syrup between thumb and index finger , open the fingers , a string of sugar syrup will form without breaking .
Add the cardamom powder to the syrup and mix well.
Take off from flame.
Add few drops of ghee to the syrup to get the nice aroma of ghee.
Dip the fried bread slices in hot syrup for five minutes and serve.
Bread Jamun can be served along with Icecream.
For frying the bread pieces ghee can be used for frying.
