Raj Bhog

Posted in : Indian Cuisine on by : swatishomekitchen

Raj bhog is a traditional Bengali sweets. It’s prepared just like Rasugullah. The size of the Raj bhog are much bigger as compared to any other Bengali sweets. There are two colors of Raj Bhog orange and yellow. I had tried yellow color because it look more appealing .

These desserts are generally prepared during festive season. A Bengali meal is simply incomplete without Raj bhog. I have made this recipe without using cornflour and maida.
