The answer is yes! But, it’s really up to your preference. Gulab jamun is a traditional Indian dessert that consists of deep fried dough balls soaked in sugar syrup. These sweet treats are made from ghee and milk, but you may substitute butter for the ghee.
Butter will not change the flavor of the dough, but it will make it moist and dense. The texture will also be different because of the difference between the two fats. If you want a denser and richer gulab jamun, go ahead and use ghee for this recipe.
Why Should You Use Butter Instead of Ghee?
Ghee is what you’d use to fry your dumplings. Butter, on the other hand, is a solid fat and can be used instead of ghee. Butter is a healthier option because it has more protein than ghee.

It’s true that butter melts when you cook with it, but it really doesn’t taste as good as ghee once the dough has been fried. So this isn’t an issue if you’re cooking for your family or friends who don’t have access to ghee or butter.
