Rasagulla is one of those sweets that give even our diet-conscious health freaks a tough time! While many sweets require an elaborate list of ingredients, rasagulla uses just about 4 ingredients present in an average kitchen at any point of time! Rasagulla is devoid of oil, but contains oodles of sugar. That said, everyone is entitled to a rasagulla or three once in a while! This drool-worthy sweet requires a bit of technique and if you get it right the first, consider yourself a wonder chef!


Health Benefit:

Rasgulla predominantly comprises sugar, protein, and carbohydrates. This combination of nutrients makes the sweet perfect for a quick energy fix on a long day under the sun. Due to high sugar content, a bite of rasagulla releases glucose almost instantly into the blood stream, thus cranking you up with instant energy.

Trivia :

  • Authentic rasgulla recipes use buffalo milk instead of cow milk.
  • The solidified milk protein (casein) is also called Chenna
  • Arrowroot or semolina is also kneaded along with the casein to produce enhanced taste and make the rasgullar less chewy.
  • Commercial rasgullas are packed in vacuum. This idea was introduced by K.C. Das, the pioneer of commercial manufacturing of rasgullas.
