Gulab Jamun with Pistachios & Gulkand

Its Republic day week and what better way to show patriotism than sharing about everyone’s favorite Indian dessert- Gulab Jamun!! With a country so big and with a huge list of desserts this dessert manages to secure a safe top 5 position and trust me it is totally worth it.

A soft sugary treat that is so simple yet so drool-worthy and scrumptious. I stuffed mine with so rose gulkand and some crunchy pistachios. Now, this might add in an extra sweetness so watch out diabetics. A perfect dessert to light up any occasion
