Hello everyone.. Today i am gonna tell you an awesome sweet dish which is famous in West Bengal (Kolkata)…i guess all Indians or your sweet tooth would have recognized as of now. Yes it is white Rasgulla. Trust me its so easy to make and delicious to eat. So let’s begin to make the same.
So if you want to make say 8 rasgulla of medium size then what all you need is 1 litre full cream milk, 2 cups of sugar, Lemon (4-5 nos.) 2 tablespoon of milk and 4 cups of water.
So lets start cooking…First what you need is to
split the milk…its simple ..first let the milk boil and then let it cool down for say 5 mins. Once your milk is cooled down say 80% then add lemon juice (squeezed from lemons) with equal amount of water ie.( for eg: 3 Tblsp of lemon juice then add 3 tblsp of water). You need to add gradually, please do not pour the mixture at once. Simultaneously you need to stir milk and mixture. After 3-4 mins, you would start seeing splitting of milk. Once you completely see the milk is separated with yellowish water, you would get white chenna. So here is your first ingredient ready. Keep one muslin cloth on one strainer to drain out yellow water. (At end know how to use this yellow water in making other recipe).
Now since lemon drops were used in this process so just to remove flavour of it just wash Chenna with one glass of water. Once you are through, you need to tighten the muslin cloth to squeeze all water out from Chenna…Now you would see soft white chenna.. let it cool down for some time and then start kneading it so to make it more smooth..this is required for say 10 mins.
Once you see a kind of dough then you may start making round small balls. Remember to make half size of what in actual size is required for rasgulla.
Simultaneously you can take pressure cooker to boil water mixed with sugar… so as per measurements you need to take first 2 cups of water with 1 cup of sugar. and boil it in pressure cooker once it starts boiling add some drops of milk, you would see some dirt at corners, you are required to take it out from spoon and then add chenna small balls into it. Cover the lid and wait for weight to release pressure. Simmer your heat.. let it cook for exact 10 mins and turn off the heat. Open the cooker once all the pressure is release, please do not open in hurry.
So the remaining 2 cups of water with 1 cup of sugar has to boiled separately. Once the sugar is dissolved in it, as above add some drops of milk, to take out the dirt. Turn off the heat and let it cool completely.
Once you open the lid of pressure cooker you would see cooked rasgulla of double size of what you dropped in…add the above made cool sheera into it. You can now chill the same and have post your dinner or whenever your stomach demands for:)
Tip: the yellow water which is separated out of Chenna, you can use the same in making delicious kadi.
Happy eating and happy cooking.. Please share your comments how it turned out when you made it.:)
