At one of the weddings, I saw a man dip laddoos in sugar syrup. A part of me thought ‘Oh, gross!’… But when I saw him get lost in his own world, I thought what the heck, why not! The hard core dessert lover that I am, wanted to try the unconventional desserts. That’s when this research helped. I hope you guys will love it too.
