  • 1 kg - Paneer
  • 2 kg - Sugar
  • 1.5 tsp - essence of rose
  • 1 tbsp - seeds of big black Cardamom

  • How to Make Rasgollas:

    1. Form the paneer into smooth and round balls around a cardamom seed.
    2. Blend sugar with 1 litre water and prepare a thin syrup.
    3. Bring the syrup to a boil and put in 1 cup water. Now put in the balls of paneer.
    4. Pour in half cup more water after blending maida in it. Boil over a brisk fire for 5 mins.
    5. Then pour in half cup of water. After another 5 mins. Add half cup of water again.
    6. Boil for 5 more minutes. At the end of this you will see the rasgollas puffed up and light and the syrup a little thick.

    8. Cover and set aside whole night.
    9. Sprinkle rose essence on top before serving, these last for a few days in the fridge or a cool, dry place.
