I never thought I would be making Indian mithai at home and cheers to my effort. First attempt in making Rasgulla and it was a huge success. We wiped out the entire bowl in 1 day. The chasni had the right amount of sugar and the Rasgullas came out nice and soft like a sponge. I used my aunts recipe and I promise you this was the most easiest recipe I came across.
