Rasgulla / Bengali Sweet / Step by Step Recipe

 







Rasgulla Dessert :





Yep,  yesterday was my Birthday..!












And  I celebrated it all day long with my family..!  Lots of friends wished me Happy Birthday on Facebook and via email and darn it, I felt special..!


Thanks for the wonderful wishes dearies..:)



In honor of my special day, I’d wish  to try  a new dessert that I haven t tried yet…!


Yes, that’s the  King of all Indian Sweets ..Rasgulla..!

Its my favorite paneer dessert,  since my childhood...!
I used to relish haldiram’s rasgullas more often. 


This is the first time , I  prepared it by myself . And it came out absolutely good. . I floated in cloud nine, with my sons comment  “ I love this super soft ones more ma, than shop bought ones “  :))

Here, I have given the step by step procedure for making this..


Enjoy..!!!





Ingredients:



·         Milk                              - 1 litre
·         Lemon juice                   - 2 to 3 tbsp
·         Ice cubes                      - 8 to 10
·         Sugar                            - 2 cups
·         Water                           - 3 cups
·         Cardamom pwd              - a pinch
·         Saffron, almond and pista nuts for garnishing




Method:











1.     Pour milk in a bowl and let it  boil in sim for 5 minutes.










2.     Add lemon juice and stir in low flame.
3.     Now the milk curdles and water separates out.








4.     Wait for 2 more minutes.









5.     Remove from flame.
6.     Allow to warm.
7.     Add ice cubes and strain it in metal strainer with a white cloth in it.
8.     Allow the water to drain completely.









9.     Squeeze and hang it for 30 minutes.










10.  Now take the paneer in a bowl.








11.  Knead it for 5 to 7 minutes gently  to make soft dough of it.









12.  Make small balls out of it.










13.  In a pressure cooker , add sugar , water and cardamom pwd.
14.  Allow to boil with stirring.









15.  Once the sugar is dissolved, add the paneer balls slowly .








16.  Pressure cook for one whistle and simmer it for 5 minutes.
17.  Once the pressure goes off, open the lid.
18.  You can see the balls have doubled in size.










19.  Transfer to bowl and refrigerate it.
20.  Serve chilled with grated pistachio, almond & saffron strands  garnishing.










21.  Soft n spongy  home made rasgullas ready to enjoy...!

  85. Hi Jay! Today I tried this rasgulla but they came out fine but not so soft. What I did wrong? I followed the step as you've directed. They were very soft when hot but after putting it in fridge, they were bit tight. Is it normal? And they've also puffed but very little. :(

    ReplyDelete
  86. Hy vertu,
    thanks for the try..
    for softness, kneading the paneer dough for 5 to 7 minutes will be needed. giv a try n enjoy..!
