Kolkata Is Loving Their Tulsi Rasogolla, Here's Where You Can Grab Your Piece
Soft, spongy and ever-so delightful Rasgulla has to be one of Sub-continents most famout sweetmeats. Made of chenna and sugar, the melt-in -mouth delicacy has been the eye of the storm for quite some time now regarding its origins. After having won the GI Tag for Roshogolla, West Bengal is leaving no stones unturned to celebrate and cherish the sweetmeat even more than before. Be it a religious function or weddings, Rashogolla is a common fixture in every Bengali gathering. There are several contemporary takes to the sweetmeat that has come up in the food scene. One such newest variant that is making Kolkata weak in their knees is a Tulsi Rasogolla. Packing the flavor of tulsi(or holy Basil) leaves, Tulsi Rashogolla is on the platter at an ongoing food festival organised by the West Bengal government in Kolkata.

The Tulsi Rashogolla is one of the most hot-selling items in one of the 25 stalls at the five-day food festival Ahare Bangla being conducted at New Town Mela Grounds, Kolkata.
