About Rose Gulkand stuffed Saffron Wreath Recipe

Saffron wreaths are traditionally prepared in Sweden during winter holiday season. My take of combining Desi Rose Gulkand with saffron flavored bread is worth enough . Trust me . It tastes amazing and everyone in my family enjoyed this flavorful bread to the core. Its winter in Riyadh . Would say must try this season .
