Ras- sweet juice, gulla-ball, this is the meaning of the name of the dish. This is a very delicate recipe.Being an Indian this is a very well loved dessert at home.. The method of preparation of rasgullas is a little different, so it may be a little difficult to get right at first shot. ut, once mastered, this dessert is a delight to senses!! Absolutely heaven!! Easch step needs precision to achieve the perfect soft, light, melt in mouth juicy sweets..
