Rasgulla

Ingredients

2 tsp. All-Purpose Flour (Maida)
1 cup Sugar
2 cup Water
½ liter Whole Milk
¼ tsp. Citric Acid (dissolved in 1/2 cup of water) or 3 tbsp. Lemon Juice (Nimbu Arakh)
3 drops of Rose Essence (Gulaab Arakh) or ¼ tsp. Cardamom Powder (Ilaichi Powder)


Method

In a pot heat the milk and bring it to a boil. Remove from heat and set aside. To the milk add the citric acid or lemon juice (which ever you are using.) Slowly and gently stir continuously until white curd forms on the surface and separates from whey. When straining this milk, the curd that is obtained is called "chenna". Wash the chenna well under cold running water and twist the cloth that was used for straining to extract water.

Knead the chenna to make a smooth dough. Add the refined flour and knead some more.

Make small balls of equal sizes (about 6-7) out of the dough and set aside.

Now to make the sugar syrup: Mix together the sugar and water in a saucepan and bring it to a boil. Add the chenna balls to the syrup and cook for 15 minutes with the lid partially covered. While cooking the chenna dumplings they will puff up.

Let the rasgullay cool a little at room temperature then add the rose essence. Finally refrigerate and chill before serving.

You can try different toppings like cardamon/cinammon/nutmeg/ground almonds you can even try putting hard candy inside before cooking them of course Smile

Here is some i made earlier

NOTE: They should be bigger than this but when i used 1/2 litre milk i didn't get much ''chenna'' from it. Next time i would use 1litre & keep the same quantities for the other ingredients.

Here is how they should look
