Recipe: Rasgulle Ki Chaat

We Gujaratis love our desert. So much so that we can have it for breakfast (fafda jalebi) , main course (meethi Gujarati dal & subzis) and our 4 o clock binge sessions (meetha shakarpara). And the day, we came across a wonderful way to relish rasgullas at the beginning of our meals, our gujju soul pirouetted to a garba tune in the middle of nowhere!! Yes, these sweet & spongy Chenna dumplings that make our mouths water & then play on our taste buds for the rest of the day can be made into a delectable chaat!!

Wicked Spoon Confessions in association with Executive Chef Sandeep, Renaissance curated a special meal for Independence Day that started with Rasgulle ki Chaat, from Agra. We present the step by step recipe to make this wonderful dish that reminds you of a beautiful vision- The Taj on a foggy morning.
