In a pan mix sugar with ¾ cup of water and simmer on low flame until you make thick sugar syrup. Keep it aside.

Cut the sides of the bread to remove the crust. Cut the bread into triangles.

Soak the fried bread pieces in the sugar syrup for about a minute or until you cook the next batch of bread.

Arrange the soaked bread pieces in a plate. Pour the rabadi on top of all the bread pieces. 
The rabadi should be evenly covered on all bread slices.
