The craving to eat something sweet can hit us after any meal. We often bite into the first chocolate or cake that we find handy, without having to go through the pains of actually making something for dessert. It doesn't help our case that dessert recipes are often elaborate, requiring many ingredients and several steps of preparation. But what if we told you that there's a recipe for making the decadent Indian sweet Gulab Jamun at home in just two easy steps with the simplest of ingredients?

What she did in the video was basically cut out the corners from 4-5 slices of breads. The remaining white bread was shredded into tiny pieces and put into a bowl. Milk was added to the bread to make the Gulab Jamun batter smooth and consistent. Balls were prepared using the bread batter and some chopped almonds and kept aside. Then, a separate pan was used to boil sugar and water to make the sugar syrup. The Gulab Jamun was then fried in the sugar syrup mixture and topped with chopped almonds and served hot and fresh.
