How to Make Tasty Rasgullas

  • Boil milk in a heavy bottom vessel, just as it starts to boil add whey/lime juice till you see the curdled milk separated. turn off heat, keep aside for 15 mins.
  • Now take a cheese cloth or a soft muslin cloth, pour the curdled milk and make a potli /bag and at the same time keep squeezing it so as to remove the water/whey (you can use this next time you make rasgullas).
  • When you see a ball of chenna in the centre of the muslin cloth it is a sign that the chenna is ready.
  • Make a sugar syrup with 1.5 cup water and 1.5 cup sugar keep aside.
  • Meanwhile boil about 10 glasses of water in a large cooker/wide vessel.
  • When the water starts boiling lower the flame.
  • Now remove the chenna in a thali and start kneading it with the flat of your palm until smooth
  • Next add sooji knead again till smooth.
  • Kneading takes about 15 to 20 mins.
  • Now make balls and add to the boiling plain water (you do not need the sugar syrup at this stage).
  • Increase the flame and wait for 1 whistle;lower the flame cook for another 7 mins.
  • Turn of heat and open the cooker only after it has cooled down completely .
  • Now carefully remove the rasgullas in a bowl and add warm the sugar syrup
  • Add some drops of rose essence

  • Serve chilled
