This a traditional Indian dessert, baked instead of fried. My family has made this recipe for generations and it's one of our favorites.

  • Combine milk powder and flour in a bowl. Add butter; beat together until creamy and blended. Add just enough milk to make a firm dough. Shape dough into 18 small balls and arrange on the baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until gulab are lightly browned, 12 to 20 minutes.

  • Combine confectioners' sugar, white sugar, and water in a saucepan over medium heat. Simmer until sugars dissolve and consistency is syrupy, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Transfer gulab to the saucepan; let soak in the warm syrup, at least 10 minutes. Let cool before serving.

Cook's Note:

Self-rising flour can be substituted with 1/2 cup all-purpose flour and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda.
