Rasgullas(Bengali Sweet)

Wanted to make some home made rasgullas?? You can make this in 1/2 hr. This home made recipe should yield about 10-15 rasgullas.

Milk - 4 cups
(i used 2% only)
Sugar - 1 cup(or add a little more acc. to your taste)
Water - 3.5 cups
Lemon juice - 2 tsp

First we need to prepare paneer:
  • Boil the milk in a high flame for few mins until it raises to the top
  • Meanwhile mix the lemon juice in 1 tsp water and dilute it.
  • When the milk highly boils and comes to the top, turn the heat to medium and add the diluted lemon juice little by little. Keep stirring
  • You can see the milk getting separated.
  • Now switch off the flame. Take a big vessel and place a clean cloth over it. Add the boiled mixture on this cloth.(careful..its hot)
  • Add some cold water over the mixture for ease and squeeze all the water from the cloth by using your hands.
  • Now the paneer formed is found inside the cloth. Try to knead the paneer well and try making small balls, if you can then your paneer is ready and perfect.
My paneer looked like:

For making Rasgullas:
  • Knead the paneer again well and make some 12 medium sized balls out of it and keep aside
  • In a pressure cooker, add the water and sugar. Heat until all the sugar melts.
  • Now drop the paneer balls slowly one by one to sugar syrup
  • Close and steam for 5-6 mins in a medium flame.
  • Once done, switch off and slowly transfer the rasgullas in a wide vessel. Once warm refrigerate for half hr. Then what else.??? have a bite!!!:)
