Rasgulla is a syrupy dessert popular in North-India and is traditionally offered as bhog to Goddess Lakshmi, at Jaganath Temple in Puri. It is made from ball shaped dumpling of Chhena and cooked in light syrup made of sugar.
Rasgulla is my all-time, I could remember very well in my childhood days my grand pa, use to get me rasagulla tins and we both sit and eat like anything. Wonder, why I haven’t tried this Rasgulla all these days. Now it’s time for Rasagulla, just like that I made it. I could never stop eating rasgulla, until the tin is empty 😛
Rasgulla is very simple, easy and less time consuming (15 mins) only when you have paneer. It just takes 40 mins to prepare paneer and then rasgullas. Never wait, a must try and a simple recipe. Let us move on to the recipe…
