Rasgulla is a famous Bengali sweet and relished all over India. The art lies in making the perfect chenna and you will get super soft Rasgullas.

Rasgulla is made of milk and sugar. We have used 2 kinds of milk in making the chenna. Cows milk which gives softness to the rasgulla and is lower in fat and then we have the full fat buffalo milk.
