Call it Gulab Jamun Trifle Recipe or Gulab Jamun Shots or Gulab Jamun Parfait, it is an excellent way of serving everyone’s favourite Gulab Jamun. Something with which one will instantly fall into with love. What do you say?
I made this trifle pudding on Raksha Bandhan for my brothers and nephews. I made it a day before and kept it in the refrigerator. So, the next day, I just had to pick these and go to my mom’s place. Also, I made this pudding in use and throw shot glasses for this so that I could carry these easily.
Gulab Jamun Trifle Pudding
In this jet age and a world of fusions, what better than serving this fusion dessert? It’s appealing, it’s appetizing, it tastes awesome and the icing on the cake, oops, Gulab Jamun is that it is a very simple recipe. Basically assembling certain things.
Gulab Jamun, the most popular dessert in India. No Indian wedding is complete without this sweet. There may be a plethora of sweets belonging to different cuisines but Gulab Jamun never misses its place. Ranging from the simplest to the most exotic weddings, Gulab Jamun has to be there.
Some people like to have it plain whereas others prefer it with Rabri (reduced and sweetened milk with nuts) or maybe Vanilla Icecream.
So, why not serve this traditional sweet in a new Avatar that too with a modern touch? A new look that looks appetizing and inviting?
Gulab Jamun Trifle Pudding is a very easy and simple fusion recipe wherein you serve our dear Gulab Jamun with custard and whipped cream. We are not using icecream here so that we can make this delectable dessert ahead of party time.
This is the best part of this recipe. You can make it a few hours prior to your party/gettogether. That way, you will be free at that time and can easily serve it to your guests whenever required.
Use Of Leftover Gulab Jamuns
As I said it is one of the most popular sweets. So at times, one gets bored of eating the same gulab jamun and you are left with plenty of these. The makeover of leftovers is the best way to use the leftovers. And this pudding is exactly that. So, give a new look to your leftover gulab jamuns by making this dessert.
How To Make Gulab Jamun Trifle Pudding?
Making this Gulab Jamun Pudding is really easy. You need only 3 ingredients for this recipe. And those 3 ingredients are custard, Gulab Jamun and whipped cream.
You can make Gulab Jamun at home or simply buy it as these are easily available. I too used the readymade ones. Though you can take any Gulab Jamun but I prefer taking the tiny ones. Sweet shops call these ‘Rasbhari’. These come in 3 different colours namely white, brown and black. Avoid white and choose from brown or black or maybe both.
As I use small Gulab Jamun, therefore just cut them into 2 for using in the trifle. However, if big ones then cut them into 4 or 6 pieces depending on their size and of your serving glass.
As I used mini shot glasses, I just arranged one layer of each. you can repeat the layers again depending on your glass.
Easy Recipe For School Fireless Competition
Gulab Jamun Parfait Recipe is a very easy recipe where you need to assemble 3 ingredients. You can make it ahead as discussed above.
However, your kids can also make this in their Fireless Competition in schools. They can take the ingredients and do the assembly in school only. Also, they can replace whipped cream with custard only.
I am sharing here the method to make this Trifle Pudding as the quantity will vary as to how you wish to serve it.

An interesting fusion dessert to liven up your parties.
- 3 Tbsp Custard Powder

- 250 ml Whipping Cream
- 12 Pc Gulab Jamun (Small Ones)

We need slightly thick custard for this pudding. Dissolve 3 tbsp custard powder in 2 or 3 tbsp milk.
Heat the remaining milk with sugar in it.
Add dissolved custard in the hot milk, stirring continuously from the other hand.
Ensure that there are no lumps.
Cook it for a minute or two. As it thickens, switch off the flame.
When cools down, keep it in the refrigerator. We need chilled custard for this pudding.
Keep the bowl and the whipping blades in the freezer for half an hour, as this eases the process of whipping.
Keep the thawed whipping cream on a bed of ice and whip till it forms stiff peaks.
Keep it in the refrigerator till use.
Cut Gulab Jamun into 2 pieces. (Or more depending on their size)
Take shot glasses or any other of your choice.
Add about 2 spoon custard in the glass.
Arrange cut gulab jamun pieces. Place them so that their outer side touches the wall of the glass. This is just an idea and not necessary.
Fill the whipped cream in a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle (or any other).
Pipe the whipped cream on the Gulab jamuns.
Sprinkle pistachios and rose petals.
Serve with love.
Transfer the whipping cream from the freezer to the refrigerator a day before so that it gets to its liquid state.
We have taken little more custard powder than the usual as we want thick custard.
Chill the custard as we need cool custard for this recipe.
Cut Gulab Jamun into small pieces, depending on their size.
Repeat the layers if the glass is of bigger size.
