This traditional Indian dessert will make anybody’s (who’s grown up in India) mouth water. These are Gulab Jamuns, fried milk solid dumplings soaked in cardmom and saffron flavored sugar syrup. The Halwai (confectioner) in the picture is making sure that the fried hot dumplings soak every bit of the flavored syrup.
Hot syrupy Gulab Jamuns topped with vanilla ice cream is a popular combination any Indian will swear by!
