As we all know that Chrissy Teigen is a multi-tasker and has many talents. Among others, she is a great cook and an author of cooking books. Recently, she shared the news that she will be making her first Gulab Jamun.
Although she started her career as a model, Chrissy Teigen has since become a cooking expert
In 2007, she appeared on the cover of Maxim’s calendar. Thus began her career in modeling and TV.

Not only that, but she has also been a guest host on E!, TMZ, MTV and Extra with Mario Lopez. From 2011 to 2014, she was a part of the Sports Illustrated Swimwear Issue.

With time, Teigen explored her love for food and cooking. In 2016, she published her cooking book, ‘Cravings: Recipes for All of the Food You Want to Eat’. After the success of that book, she released another book and her cookware line with ‘Target called Cravings’ by Chrissy Teigen.
Recently, she posted a tweet and announced that she would be making her first Gulab Jamun

Needless to say, her followers came forward with the best tips
According to the actor, Kal Penn, cashew and almonds added in the sweet ruins the taste.
Oooooh this is tite. Only tip: some (garbage) people put a cashew or almond in the middle of each one, which ruins it, so I’d say don’t do that.

Meanwhile, another follower shared her own recipe of making Gulab Jamun which must be really helpful for Teigen.
Make sure the gulab jamun are COMPLETELY cool before putting in sugar syrup otherwise they will disintegrate! And be very careful with oil temp lest the jamuns become too oily or end up raw inside. Be sure to soak at least overnight!
