Method
For the chenna

    For the chenna
  1. Combine the cow’s milk and buffalo’s milk in a broad and deep non-stick pan and bring to a boil.
  2. Switch of the flame and wait for 1 minute, while stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the lemon juice gradually and keep stirring gently.
  4. Allow it to stand for ½ minute to curdle. It is completely curdled, when the chenna and the whey (greenish water) separate out.
  5. Strain using a muslin cloth. Discard or store the whey.
  6. Place the muslin cloth with the chenna in a bowl of fresh water and wash it 2 to 3 times.
  7. Tie and hang for 30 minutes for the extra water to drain out.

How to proceed

    How to proceed
  1. Put 5 cups of water in a steamer or a pressure cooker, add the sugar and bring to a boil, while stirring occasionally so that the sugar dissolves completely.
  2. Meanwhile, squeeze the muslin cloth to drain any more water remaining.
  3. Place the muslin cloth on a flat plate, open it and knead the chenna very well using your palms for 3 to 4 minutes or till the chenna is smooth and free of lumps.
  4. Divide the chenna into 16 equal portions and roll each portion into small balls between your palms.
  5. Put the chenna balls into the sugar water and cover and steam for 7 to 8 minutes.
  6. Switch off the flame and allow it to stand in the steamer for 10 to 15 minutes.
  7. Remove gently into a bowl, refrigerate and serve chilled.

Handy tip:

    Handy tip:
  1. If buffalo’s milk is not available you can make the recipe using 5 cups of cow’s milk.

   Hi Arpita, Just put the lid without the ring gasket and whistle. There is no need to put any weight on the pressure cooker.

   Hi Madhu, Firstly the kneading of the rasgulla dough is very important. Secondly, the rasgullas are to be cooked on slow flame and not high at all. Thirdly, it is very important to cover with a lid and keep it aside for 15 minutes after cooking. Do try and let us know your feedback. Happy Cooking!!!

   1) If you got flat or shapeless rasgullas, it is because they aren’t getting enough space to expand. Pick a bigger pot or make your rasgulla in multiple batches. Rasgullas need plenty of space in the syrup to expand and keep their round 2) If the syrup is less or there are too many balls crowding the pot, rasgullas will either become flat or lose their shape. 3) Too thick syrup will also make flat rasgullas Surely try one more time and share your feedback. Happy Cooking!!!

   Hi Swati, There could be a small error which mite have happened, make sure the water is rolling and boiling when you put the rasgullas in the syrup.. this is also an important step.. which will help to keep the shape of the rasgulla firm.. Watch our video.. for more detail. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIHv_jgdTqw
