RajBhog, as the name suggests, is a delicacy that is truly royal in its taste and looks. Though it is quite similar to the rasgulla, the basic difference is that it has a rich stuffing of ground dry fruits in the center. In some variations, even mawa is stuffed along with the dry fruits to elevate its rich flavor. Liberal addition of saffron gives it a beautiful look. A garnish of powdered pistas adds to its beauty. And they are a little bit on the bigger side as compared to the rasgullas.

  14. After 5 minutes, add maida and again knead to a smooth, silky texture.

  15. This will take about 5 to 7 minutes.

  23. Cover it with a lid and cook for a total of 20 minutes.

  24. After first 5 minutes, open the lid and flip the balls so that the bottom side cooks well too.

  25. Do flip them once in a while till the 20 minutes are up.
  26. If at any point it feels that the water quantity is reducing, add more, one tablespoon at a time so that there is no change in its temperature.
  27. Let it stand till it comes to room temperature and then chill in the refrigerator for at least 8 to 10 hours.
  28. Garnish with a few saffron strands and powdered pistas before serving.
