Peanut Jamuns

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Wednesday, December 02, 2009

After Black-eyed bean sundal, comes peanut jamuns!!!! Got this recipe from Aval Vikatan. If i dont make jamuns, my son will be left out without any sweets, he doesnt favour those urundai's. These peanut jamuns are very easy to make and turned out great!!!

Peanuts/Groundnuts - 1 cup (skinless)
Sugar - 3/4 cup
one riped banana
oil for frying the jamuns

Soak Peanuts for 2 hours. Grind it to a fine batter along with the banana. Dont add water. Make small balls of the batter and deep fry, until golden brown.

Sugar syrup
In a heavy botton pan, take sugar and add enough water to just immerse the sugar. Let it boil, and Sugar dissolve. Take it off the flame.

Soak the fried jamuns in the sugar syrup. Serve after an hour or two. Tasted Yummy!!!!
