Rasgulla

Rasgulla is one of the most popular Bengali sweet.  This delicacy was originated in Orissa, and is simple and easy to make if you follow each step very carefully.

Ingredients

For chena

5 Cups full fat milk

2-3 Tablespoon of lemon juice

1/2 Teaspoon of cardamom powder

For sugar syrup

1 ½ Cup of sugar

3 Cups water

Few saffron threads

Process

Bring your milk to boil over high heat while you stir occasionally to not let it stick to the bottom of the deep bottom pan.  Once it comes to a boil turn off the heat to the low heat, then add 1tbsp of lemon juice in the centre repeating it one more time.  Quickly drain your curdled milk over a muslin cloth. Rinse it over running water to remove any tanginess. Try to remove as much water as possible. While you hang your chena, in a broad vessel bring sugar and water in a ratio of 1:5 to boil over high heat. Once all the water has been removed from the chena you can now mash it using the heel of your palm until it stops from falling apart. Roll them into small balls and slide them over the boiling sugar syrup. Cook for 5 minutes over high heat and cover them for another 15 minutes over lowest heat possible. Soak them in separate sugar syrup in 1:3 ratio and cool completely.
