Loved by all, the traditional Bengali sweet, here's for you the Rasgulla recipe. Soft and spongy balls made of fresh paneer and dipped in sugar syrup. You just cannot have only one!

Ingredients of Rasgulla

  • 2 litres low fat milk - boiled and refrigerated overnight
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice - mixed in 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp refined flour (maida) or semolina
  • 4 cups thin sugar syrup - flavored with cardamom or rosewater

How to Make Rasgulla

  1. Remove whatever cream that forms over the milk.
  2. Bring to a boil, lower heat and add the lemon mixture gradually, till milk curdles.
  3. Does not matter if you do not use up the whole solution.
  4. Shut off the heat and leave mixture to rest for 5 minutes.
  5. Drain off water and leave the paneer in a colander for at least 4 hours.
  6. Mash paneer very smooth (no grains).
  7. Add the flour/semolina and mash some more.
  8. Bring 4-6 cups of water to a boil, and shape the paneer into balls (smooth ones, no cracks) in the mean time.
  9. Transfer balls into the boiling water, cover with a tight fitting cover and let cook till puffed up (about 20 minutes).
  10. Let cool, squeeze out of the water, transfer to syrup, chill and serve.

    "Rasgulla" is not Bengali, it originated from Odisha. And next time plz call it Rasagola as they say in Odia.

    You must mention that Rasgulla is also a traditional sweet in Odisha. Don't you have any Odia reporter in your team who could have informed you about this ?
