    I came across an article in the newspaper which I would like share it with you all.
    The sweet meat enriched with vitaminA and anti oxidants better known as the herbal rasgullah has been prepared by the food technology department of Jadavpur university of Calcutta.
    Carrots are a good source of carotene compound ,an active anti oxidant required in large amounts by the body among all age groups.The herbal rasgullahs can fight diseases like mal nutrition,cancer ,cholosterol and slow ageing process.Foods mixed with anti oxidants are in great demand in western countries..They are also a cheaper alternative to medicinal vitamin supplements.
    The herbal rasgullah is prepared by mixing equal amount of carrot paste and cottage cheese with baking soda rava and malto dextrine.
    It does not require high technology and can be made on a small scale.
    They not have artificial colours as the colouringis from the carotene paste.
    The University is training entrepreneurs in manufacturing.
    The scientists also plan to launch natural carotene in paste and powder form,as artificial ones are costly .

    hmmm.. I envy all you people out there in India. You get the best mithai in the world! here in the UK there are many mithai shops but not one which is comparable to any in India. My favourite is the Standard Sweet Shop in Karol Bagh in New Delhi. I've told you the best mithai shop in Delhi...can anyone tell me the best mithai shop in London? doubt it! there aren't any!!!:cry: pity!

    hi kanaka,

    Great information. Thanks for posting. Since I have a sweet tooth it's best news for me. Now, I am wondering if they will send this to US.
