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, Cham Cham, Bhappa Doi, Fruit Sandesh and Orange Chennar Payesh at home.
