Rajbhog Recipe – Bengali Sweet

Rajbhog is a traditional Bengali sweet made with paneer or chena and flavoured with saffron and rose essence. This Bengali delicacy is another version of rasgulla which can also be stuffed with dry fruits or mawa and is bigger in size. Here I made this Rajbhog with kesari flavour and without any stuffing. I use the same techniques of making Rasgulla to make these rajbhog spongy and soft. This is the perfect recipe for beginners. So make your festivals colourful by making this yummy sweet dish at your home.

    In fact, it is the best sweet made in India, absolutely healthy and not harmless. I speak from personal experience. Easily among the richest contributions from ‘Sonar Bangla’.
