Potato jamuns/luscious potato bites in Cardomom syrup

 These were just melt in mouth tiny bites which vanished in thin air as soon as the photos were taken,true,I hardly was able to save some for hubby .Wishing everyone happy vijayadashami and dussehra !

1 cup potato mashed (I used  golden can substitute with red,yam or sweet potato,but make sure they are dense and waxy not grainy like russet )
All purpose flour- 4 Tbs Plus more if the dough doesn't come togather .
Tiny bit of ghee or vegetable shortening
baking soda- a pinch
oil for deep frying
for the simple sugar syrup
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1/4 tsp cardamom powder

  • Boil and mash the potato without lumps
  • make the syrup by adding the water to the sugar,bring to boil ,turn the heat off and add in the cardamom powder.
  • now add the flour and the soda to the mashed potato and knead to form a smooth dough,do not add water
  • pull out small portions of the dough and roll between the palm of greased hands to get perfect round shape.repeat for the rest of the dough 
  • heat oil in a deep pan for frying ,test if the oil is ready by dropping a small part of the dough,it should come up immediately ,if it settles down then the oil need to heat a bit more ,once hot maintain a medium high temperature for the inside to cook properly.
  • Drop the jamuns carefully into the hot oil and fry till golden brown
  • once golden brown remove the jamuns from oil and transfer to the syrup .
  • Let the jamuns sit for 15 minutes in the syrup before serving .
Enjoy !
