Watch YouTube video here 👇 I met this Cycle wale Bhaiya around 20 years back when he used to sell the same stuuff, the same way and on the same bicycle. Time for sure has changes but his way of making the rasgulla and bread are still the same. He says," I have been doing this for last 45 years and I love what I do". 300 pieces of rasgulla and 200 pieces of breads are what he makes each day. When I asked him about the pricing, he said,"I started selling this for 1 paisa for a bread and 7 paisa for rasgulla". Food really gives you lots of memories and this for sure is right up there. If you want to enjoy his rasgulla and sweet bread, you will need to visit him at Soami Nagar subway and relish the taste of this amazing street food.
