Potato is probably the most popular food item in the Indian diet and India is one of the largest producers of potato. Potato is a very rich source of starch. It also contains phosphorus, calcium, iron and some Vitamins C and A. It is vastly consumed as a vegetable and is also used in various forms such as starch, flour, alcohol and dextrin. Besides being used as a daily food item in various vegetable preparations, potato today increasingly finds use in the form of chips or wafers as snacks food. In the present study, potato powder is produced from two varieties of potato like kufri chandramukhi and kufri jyoti. These potato powders are utilized as a binding agent to produce fortified rasogolla sample R1 (kufri jyoti fortified) and R2 (kufri chandramukhi fortified). Control sample (C) of rasogolla is prepared using chhana (a heat and acid coagulated milk protein mass and an Indian equivalent to cottage cheese) only and a market sample (M) is also taken into consideration during comparative analysis of both sensory and texture. It has been found that the highest overall acceptability of about 8.7 (based on 9-point hedonic scale) is observed for sample R2 compared with others. Whereas considering the textural profile like hardness, fracturability, springiness and cohesiveness the sample R2 provides comparable result with other control and market sample.
