  • Sweet potato - 1cup
  • Maida - 1 tbsp
  • Cooking soda - 2pinches
  • Almonds / Pistachios (Optional) - For garnishing
For Sugar syrup
  • Sugar - 1 cup
  • Water - 3/4cup
  • Rose essence - 2 drops
  • Cardamom - 2
  • Saffron (Optional) - a few strands
  • Wash the sweet potatoes well. Chop it and pressure cook for 3 whistles, add little water only. Drain the water completely, peel the skin and mash it very well without any small chunks also. There should not be any moisture content.
  • Add cooking soda, maida and mix everything to form a smooth dough. If the dough is sticky add another 1 tbsp of maida.
  • Pinch the dough into small portions. Grease your hand with ghee and roll it into balls without any cracks. Heat oil in a pan (Kadai), check the oil temperature by dropping a small pinch. If it rises immediately, the temperature is perfect. Reduce the flame and drop the balls carefully in the oil. Don`t crowd the oil. Flip it on both sides and fry it till golden brown. Drain it in a kitchen towel.
  • Add sugar and water in a pan. Boil it until sugar melts and the syrup becomes slightly thick. No one string consistency is required.
  • Now add cardamom pods and saffron. When the sugar syrup is warm, drop the fried balls one by one. The jamuns absorb the sugar syrup very fast.
  • But give a resting time for about 3 to 4 hours. Toss the jamuns gently once or twice.
Delicious sweet potato gulab jamun is ready. Serve it in a bowl.
