Mouni Roy Explains The Difference Between Nolen Gur Roshogulla & Regular Roshogulla

People might know her from the characters she played in ‘Naagin’ or her recent blockbuster, ‘Brahmastra: Part One’. But we know her as Mouni Roy and have always adored this talented Bong beauty. She has done multiple TV shows like ‘Sultan of Delhi’, ‘Devon Ke Dev…Mahadev’ and more. Recently Mouni Roy met our Editor-in-Chief, Kamiya Jani, for an exciting Dussehra Special episode of the Sunday Brunch. We couldn’t help but indulge in some delicious Bengali sweets with this sweet Bengali gal at her restaurant in Andheri, Badmaash.

Mouni Roy Told Us The Difference Between Nolen Gur Roshogulla & Regular Roshogulla

Mouni Roy is a true Bengali! She got extremely excited when she heard what was for dessert on this episode of Sunday Brunch. She exclaimed in happiness and awe when she found out we got her favourite sweets, Nolen Gur Sondesh. We were excited for her as well. It was Nolen Gur Roshogulla, Nolen Gur Sondesh, Misti Doi and more! *Drools*

Kamiya being a Sindhi married to Punjabi, asked Mouni Roy what was the difference between these two popular Bengali sweets. If you are a true Bengali then you know the difference between Nolen Gur Roshogulla and Regular Roshogulla and are probably smirking about it. Mouni Roy told Kamiya that Nolen Gur Roshogulla is made up of Gur which is jaggery instead of sugar and normal Roshogulla is made with just sugar. If you have ever noticed then, Nolen Gur Roshogulla also has a slight burnt sugar colour to it which comes from jaggery.

Upon hearing the usage of jaggery, Kamiya asked her if Nolen Gur Roshogulla was supposed to be healthier. To which they both started laughing and Mouni told Kamiya to not think about calories much and just indulge in the goodness of Nolen Gur Roshogulla. We agree, that when it is about Bengali sweets or in fact about any sweets then the thought of calories should be kicked out of your mind.

What Is She Counting For Us?

When it was time for the desserts to come out, Kamiya made sure to let Mouni know that Curly Tales brought whatever they could get their hands on in Mumbai. She also told Mouni that she might have had better Bengali sweets back in Bengal compared to the ones in Mumbai. To which Mouni replied, “No, the fact that you got it is the effort that counts and I am sure I am gonna love them.” Mouni, you have our hearts and are as sweet as your favourite Bengali sweet, Nolen Gur Sondesh.

She also helped Kamiya to pronounce these Bengali sweets in the correct manner and with the proper accents as it became a tongue twister for Kamiya. Kamiya appreciated it and said, “I hope I get it right by the end of this.”
