Gulab Jamuns are perhaps one of the most liked Indian desserts. It was confined to the Northern States before; but these days this special dessert finds its place on any dining table in India irrespective of region. As a variety, these are served with Rabri or Ice creams also.
Last month , I too made them for my guests alongwith a simple yet delicious chocolate cake. When they left here, there was some leftovers of the cake frosting and gulab jamun which I transformed into this yummy dish. Did nothing but layered gulab jamun in an airtight box and poured the cream. Set it to freeze. You can do this with ice creams too... Beat any of the shop bought ice creams and repeat the same procedure. Anyways I'll give you the recipe for the cream I used here which is also delicious and can be served for any of your guests and yea... your kids will love this for their summer holidays.
Gulab Jamuns (soaked in syrup)
Fresh Cream 1 cup
Icing Sugar 2-3 tbsp or more according to your taste
Cocoa powder 2 tbsp
Vanilla essence few drops
Prepare Gulab Jamuns. (check the link for the recipe). Press the soaked jamuns slightly so that excess syrup is drained. Now the jamuns are ready to use.
Whip up the cream till soft peaks form. Add rest of the ingredients such as icing sugar, cocoa powder and vanilla essence. Whip till stiff peaks form.
Take an airtight container. You can re use any ice cream box for this. Layer your Gulab Jamuns alternatively. Don't layer it too near. That is; place one gulab jamun and leave a place for another one and then keep one more after that. Just like chess or something. Pour your cream mixture over that so that your gulab jamuns are covered nicely. Tap on the flour so that the cream reaches every nook and corner.
Place one more layer of gulab jamuns over that. This time keep your jamuns above the empty spaces where you didn't keep your jamuns but cream. Pour the cream over it and repeat the same procedure. Tightly close the lid and freeze atleast for 3 hours or till you use.
If you are using ice creams, beat nicely and do the same procedure.
