Rajbhog is a variety of Rasgulla, but bigger in size when compared to it. Made with soft and spongy paneer balls stuffed with assorted nuts, they are blended with saffron strands soaked in sugary syrup.

This is another popular Bengali sweet that is made during festivals like Diwali and special occasions.


Unlike Rasgulla which are white in colour, Raj Bhogs are yellow in colour.
