Gulab Jamun at Origin India

Also referred to as Origin India’s version of the classic doughnut hole is gulab jamun, a traditional Indian dessert that is often served on special occasions or holidays. Here, deep-fried cottage cheese and semolina flour balls are soaked in an intense rosewater and cardamom-infused sugar syrup and served warm, garnished with nuts. Sometimes, chef Kuldeep Singh will even lay a thin sheet of edible silver or gold atop the dessert, creating an extra special sight. Truly a crave-worthy dessert you’ll want to savor and perhaps not share with others.
