Chocolate Gulab Jamuns, Little Drops Of Heaven

I agree that Easter is over, but the festive period still goes on. So here is the old sweet dish Gulab Jamun but with a new twist; Chocolate Gulab Jamuns. I just experimented and the taste was too good. Bitter dark chocolate balanced the sweetness of gulab jamuns. Also I made them with milk powder which was new for me, they turned out to be very soft and spongy.All were surprised and asked me for the recipe. So here it is-

Ingredients :

Milk Powder : 1 cup
All purpose flour : 1/4 cup
Sugar : 2 cups
Baking Powder : 1/4 tsp
Unsalted butter : 1 tbsp
Cardamom Powder : 1/2 tsp
Some chocolate chips
Oil for deep frying

Method :

Mix the milk powder with baking powder, flour, unsalted butter and little water, make a smooth dough. Cover it with a lid and set aside for 15 minutes. 
Divide the dough into small smooth balls. Fill chocolate chips in it and cover it with the mixture and make a ball.
For preparing sugar syrup add 2 cups of water and cardamom powder to sugar .Cook till sugar dissolves in the water, boil the sugar syrup for a few minutes, approximately 15 minutes.When syrup turns thick it means that the syrup is ready. 
Heat oil in a pan for deep frying the balls. Fry the balls on a low flame stirring them constantly for even browning. When they turn to golden brown color, remove from the oil and put them into sugar syrup. Soak for 30 minutes. 
Serve hot or chilled.

Tips:- Remember softer the dough, softer will be the Gulab Jamuns
-You can also fill jam,gulkand any nuts in between.

Enjoy the little drops of heaven.
