Ace confectioner Mr. K.C.Das,
Hailed from Kolkata’s middle class.
His ubiquitous influence made me ask,
The mighty recipe of ‘Rosogollas’, to unmask.

Boil the MILK, make the CHEESE, as he told.
Fish it out and give a light SQUEEZE, a trick very old.
Use your PALM, MASH it sans humdrum,
Make the balls, boil in SYRUP until puffy they become.

The taste wasn’t that great, admitted me, the connoisseur,
The recipe that he gave , wasn’t super.
His SECRET element, he must have concealed.
“Add a generous amount of LOVE”, then he revealed.
