Bengalis are very, very fond of sweets. Meals and tea-time would never be complete without snacks and sweets. Rasgulla, especially, is very close to their heart and not a day goes by without them popping at least one Rasgulla into their mouth!
Many Bengali sweets are made with Chenna, a special type of homemade cheese that is similar to Paneer. Try your hand at making ever-popular Bengali sweets like Rasgulla, Chum Chum, Bhappa Doi, Fruit Sandesh and Orange Chennar Payesh at home.
This is one sweet the Bengalis cannot live without, and you too are sure to fall in love with it once you taste these super-soft, milk-white Rasgulla. Remember that everything matters in the making of perfect rasgullas -- from the amount of lemon juice used and the lump-free kneading of the chenna, to the consistency of the sugar water.
