Sweet Sundays – Rosogolla

rasgulla

I am sweet and soft
So, handle me with care.
I gently melt in your mouth
And kindle a compulsive desire.

The ever-so-enticing, Rosogolla needs no introduction. You cannot just have enough of it and plentiful helpings are for sure. This sugary dessert with spongy cottage cheese balls can surely make you drool. It is a must for Bengali /Oriya weddings and other auspicious occasions.  A very wintery variation is the Nolen gur er ( fresh winter jaggery)  rosogollas that is to die for. An added bonus would be if you can lay your  hands on Khejur gur er (date jaggery) Rosogolla.

The health benefits of rosogolla – an immediate mood enhancer, anytime anywhere!
