Ingredients


For The Rasgullla Recipe

For The Chenna
2 1/2 cups ( 1/2 litre) cow’s milk
2 1/2 cups ( 1/2 litre) buffalo’s milk
1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice

Other Ingredients

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 Savita, After kneading the chenna when you shape the rasgullas, ensure the balls are smooth without any cracks. This will avoid breaking of them in sugar syrup.

Hi, I tried it and It was very tasty but rasgulla was less spongy. If I try this in pressure cooker then how many whistle should take? And what can I do for making rasgulla more spongy?

   Hi, It depends on what flavour rasgulla you want to make. In case of chocolate and rose rasgulla,m you mix the cocoa powder and rose syrup/petal in step 3 while mixing the chenna.

mam can we use only Buffalo'' s milk ?

   Hi Rupali, you can use buffalo''s milk but as I would recommend that use combination of both as cow milk has less fat content which will make you chenna soft for the rasgullas. Cow milk is easily available now. Do try it and share your feed back. Happy Cooking!!!

Hi, Tarla ma''am. I am making Rasgulla today as per your recipe. I wanted to ask if I add some cashew powder to the Rasgulla while kneading the Chenna to enhance the taste, will it be alright? And I have keep on making different food stuffs with the help of your recipes often. Your receipes are purely Indian, perfect and very easy to make. None of my food stuff went fail. Thanks so much for this.

Hi Tarla...Initially my rasgullas seemed to be turning out well ..size increased to triple but then even before I opened the pan they became flat and broke on sides. what could be the possible reason for this

   Make sure you have kneaded the chenna well as mentioned in the procedure for 3 to 4 minutes till it is completely smooth and lump free. Another point to remember is to allow the rasgullas to stand in the steamer for 10 to 15 minutes as mentioned. If this is not followed there is a possibility of it to break and become flat. Do give it a try again and let us know if it worked out!
