Kesari Rajbhog for SFC#1

Rajbhog is Indian Mithai which prepared with
chenna (cottage cheese) and saffron, and served in sugar syrup. As it’s our
first announcement so I choose quite simple recipe under Indian Sweets. I adopt
this recipe from Chef Sanjeev kapoor’s food portal. 
For this recipe, you have
to knead the chenna with sooji and maida and stuffed with khoya and pistachios and
served in cardamom flavor sugar syrup. This recipe is quite same as Bengali rasgulla
but quite different in part of stuffing and its color is yellow.

food. For this recipe, I was soaked few saffron strands in warm water and get original
kesari/ saffron color which is good for health too.
