Bengali Kacha Golla is one sweet that I cannot resist and thankfully it’s one of the few Indian sweets which is light and extremely easy to make too.
As the month of August concludes, we have a lineup of Indian festivals coming up and these Bengali Kacha Golla recipe makes for a perfect recipe to get them started.
Step by Step pictures to make Kacha Golla recipe.
Bengali Kacha Golla is a popular sweet from Kolkata (West Bengal – India) but because of its popularity, it’s available in many other Indian states.The main reason for its popularity is the lightness of the recipe.
Unlike traditional Indian sweets which are either fried or soaked in rich sugary syrup, this one is a refreshing change.
Paneer (Indian Cheese) or Ricotta (Full Fat)
These ingredients are very typical to any Indian home and if need be, all of them can be easily found in Indian grocery stores or even American grocery stores.
The Cheese should be dry (not much water in it).
So if you are using paneer, just crumble and saute it over low heat for 2-3 minutes (till water evaporates).
We DO NOT want to cook the panner/cheese but simply want to evaporate the water.
* Although they taste best if served when it’s made however sometimes they are so soft, that they might break.
Hence I kept them in the fridge for 2 hrs before serving.
It’s extremely aromatic and refreshing because of its light ingredients. It can be served for festivals, brunches or even high tea.
