bengali chenna rasbarimini rasgulla recipe | bengali chenna rasbari | angoor rasgulla with detailed photo and video recipe. bengali desserts are known for its milk-based desserts which are hugely popular for its creamy and spongy texture. most of these desserts are prepared by spoiling the milk and the milk curdles also known as chenna is sweetened with sweeting agent. one such easy and simple chenna based sweet recipe is angoor raabari or also refereed as mini rasgulla known for its size and appearance.

well, before we jump into the recipe, you would be having this question – what is this mini rasgulla recipe and how it is different from the traditional one. to begin with, i have already explained about the size. these are small, mini and compact in sizes. therefore, much easier to handle, shape and also to cook. these do not easily dissolve in sugar syrup as it does not have much are to collapse. having said that, traditionally these were made for a different purpose. these are particularly made for chenna kheer where these mini’s are dipped in milk kheer and served. but due to the less complexity, these mini’s were served as it is or prepared on purpose. i personally like these and find it cute when served in a small bowl. you can easily serve 3-4, yet there is no guilt for sugar consumption.

furthermore, i would also like to add some more additional tips, suggestions and variations to mini rasgulla recipe. firstly, the quality of the milk is very important and has to be a full cream. you would not get the same amount of chenna with other milk variations and also it would have a less fat percentage in it. this would cause them to crumble. secondly, once it is prepared and there is an excess of mini’s you can easily serve with either rabri or milk kheer. in addition, you may also serve these with a scoop of chocolate or any flavoured ice creams. lastly, i have not added semolina (rava/sooji) or even plain flour (maida) while kneading the chenna. this is because i have used full cream milk. if you feel the chenna is not holding together, you may add 1-2 tsp of rava or maida to hold the shape.
