Instant Bread Gulab Jamun Recipe

bread gulab jamun recipe

Instant bread gulab jamun is one the easiest Diwali sweets I love to make and it takes just 20 minutes to make this bread gulab jamun. These bread gulab jamuns are super soft and yum and perfect treat to surprise your loved ones this Diwali.

The method I have showed is by blending the bread in mixie and making it into breadcrumbs and then make it into a soft dough by adding little milk. You can also make without using a mixie or blender; you just have to crumble/tear the bread slices into a bowl; but make sure you have trimmed of the sides/edges of the bread. But, if you are blending it in a blender there is no need to trim off the edges/sides and for that reason; I prefer making it into breadcrumbs and then make the jamuns.

I like the subtle flavor of saffron and hence I used them; but that is entirely optional...freshly ground cardamon seeds are a must :) A couple of drops of rose essence would definitely perfect the taste and flavor; unfortunately, I did not have, but if you have at hand use them...after all Gulab Jamun comes from the Persian words "gol"  and "ab" which means ,,, rose and water.
