Ingredients to make Raj Bhog

  • 250 grams - Chenna
  • 1 tsp - maida
  • 1 tsp - Suji
  • 4 tbsp - Khoya / mawa
  • 8 - pistachios (blanched and chopped )
  • 5-7 - almonds (blanched and chopped )
  • 1/2 tsp - cardamom
  • For syrup : 3 cups sugar
  • 5 Cups - water
  • 1 tbsp - Rose water
  • 1 generous pinch of saffron
  • 2 drops - Yellow food color

How to make Raj Bhog

  1. Take fresh paneer or chenna and knead it gently.
  2. Add maida and sooji and knead well to make a smooth and a soft dough. Cover the dough with a soft muslin cloth and let it rest for 5-6 mins
  3. In a non stick pan add mawa, chopped nuts along with cardamom powder.
  4. Once the stuffing is cool. Pinch a lemon sized ball from the paneer/chenna dough and take around 1/2 tsp of stuffing mix prepared and place in between the ball and cover it from all sides.
  5. For making sugar syrup. Take a large thick bottomed pan and heat water. Once the water starts boiling, add sugar, saffron and rose water and allow it to boil till the sugar melts completely.
  6. Again let the chenna balls boil on high flames from another 6-7 mins or till they double in size.
  7. If you are not using saffron, then you can add few drops of yellow food color while making the syrup. I used saffron hence it gave a natural golden color to the sweet. Turn off the gas and allow everything to cool.
