Method  :

  • In a pan add the sooji and dry roast it for 2 minutes in a low flame. Do not change the colour of the sooji. 
  • Take out and keep it aside. 
  • In the same pan add the milk and allow this to boil for a minute. Ensure it should not over flow.
  • When it starts boiling, keep the flame low and add the roasted rava to this. 
  • Mix well and ensure it should not form any lumps. 
  • Let this cook for 5 minutes in medium low flame. 
  • It will start thicken like a upma| kesari.
  • Once the milk is completely absorbed add 1 tsp of ghee to this.
  • Mix well and cook for 2 more minutes.
  • Let it absorb all the moisture. Be careful not to burn it. 
  • Take it out and keep it in a plate. 
  • Allow this to cool completely.
  • In the meantime, let's make the sugar syrup. 
  • In a saucepan add the sugar and 2 cups of water to this.
  • Add the saffron to this. If you want to add cardamom you can add too instead of saffron. 
  • Boil this till the sugar melts and becomes a sticky syrup. 
  • Keep it aside. 
  • Grease your hands and knead the rava into a dough. 
  • Make small lemon sized ball out of the dough.
  • Heat oil for deep frying. 
  • Once it is hot, keep the flame to medium.

  • Do not disturb this for a minute.
  • Slowly flip this and cook them till they become golden brown.
  • Take out and drain in a kitchen towel.
  • Repeat this for the rest of the dough. 
  • Once done warm the sugar syrup again. 
  • Add the fried balls to the sugar syrup.
  • Ensure all the balls are immersed in the sugar syrup. 
  • Let this soak for 2-3 hours.
  • Serve Rava Gulab jamuns as it is or with Vanilla ice cream.

Notes:
