Sugar -1/2 cup
Water -1 .1/2 cup
Cardamom - 2 crushed
Rose essence - 1 tsp optional

add cardamom powder and boil the sugar syrup until it becomes little sticky.
touch the syrup it should be sticky.Keep the sugar syrup ready before frying the gulab jamuns.
Once it cools a little add rose essence to the sugar syrup if wanted....

Cut the brown crust of the bread. Dip both sides of the bread in milk & squeeze out the milk.Repeat same with all the bread slices.
Put the bread in a blender and blend it with milk powder for a second.Make a dough with it.

Divide the dough into equal parts and insert Nokul dana, make smooth balls with the bread dough.Don't apply much pressure otherwise
the gulab jamuns will turn hard.

Heat oil in a kadai and fry the gulab jamuns on low flame until they turn brown.If you keep the flame in high,
the  gulab jamuns will turn brown faster but the inside will remain uncooked.
Drop the fried gulab jamuns into the warm sugar syrup you prepared.
