Balaram Mullick is a confectionery shop in Kolkata, India that is known for its traditional Bengali sweets and snacks.

Danadar is a dry version of Rasogolla. It is prepared similarly to how Rasogolla, Chum Chum and Rajbhog are made. However, it is dry with syrup still clinging on the outside, or rather dried sugar crystals are formed. Unlike the Rasogolla, where the sugar syrup is mild, this sugar syrup is thick and it is 1: 1 ratio of sugar to water. Once you boil the chhana in the preferred shape, it is then cooked further in the sugar syrup until it gets completely coated and dry. In the end, you will end up having a crunchy sweet, with a thick sugar layer coating it. Sometimes it is rolled over sugar as well in shops. Essentially, this is similar to those fried sweets dipped in sugar like the Kaja, Gujiyas where the sugar crystallizes after drying off. I read that this is also one of the popular sweets sold in shops in West Bengal.
