Nolen Gurr er Rasoogolla/ Indian Cottage Cheese Balls are cooked in Date Palm Jaggery Syrup!

Nolen Gurr/ khejur gurr is Date Palm Jaggery that is usually available in India during winter time. It has a very distinct aroma that I absolutely love. That's why khejur gurr rasogolla is also very easily available during the wintertime. It is one of my favorite wintertime desserts of all time :). Nolen Gurr er Rasogolla is an authentic Bengali dessert that is made with homemade Indian cottage cheese balls that are cooked in Date Palm Jaggery syrup. Rasogolla is a pride of Bengal and people wait for wintertime to have date palm jaggery rasogolla or any other desserts made with date palm jaggery to have.
