Sponge Rasgulla Recipe In Words
|Yield:||8 Sponge Rasgulla|
- 1 liter Whole milk (Full cream milk)
- 1 Big Lemon
For sugar syrup
- 2 Tbsp Milk
- 1.5 Cup Sugar
- 3 cups water
- Keep milk in a pan and bring it to a boil. Keep the stove on high flame.
- Once you see the boil, switch off the stove and let the milk cool down to room temperature for 5 minutes.
- Add Lemon juice in Milk and keep stirring. You will see milk breaking up and the formation of small particles.
- You can use Fork to squeeze out Lemon juice easily with no Lemon extractor required.
- Keep adding Lemon juice gradually. Do not add all juice in one go. You can identify spoiled milk with its texture.
- Once milk spoiling is done, take a cotton cloth, a sieve and a bowl. Stack Sieve and cotton cloth on top of bowl.
- Pour spoiled milk in the cotton cloth to separate Chaina (milk solid particles) from milk water.
- Pick all four corners of cotton cloth and squeeze out the extra water.
- Now, pour 1 cup water on the milk particles to remove the Lemon flavor and smell.
- Squeeze out the water again. Cotton cloth plays an important role here as it does not allow the fine milk solids to rinse away.
- You can use the rinsed water to make Indian Kadi instead of throwing it away.
- The milk solids (called Chaina in Hindi) are ready. Take it out in a plate/tray.
- Now, we need to knead the milk solids for about 5 minutes to make it smooth.
- This kneading process helps in smoothing the milk solids thereby making soft and spongy Rasgulla.
- After 5 minutes, the milk solids would have smooth-ened. Now, roll it with hands to make a round shaped ball.
- Take out small Rasgulla balls out of this big ball. Roll them to make a round shaped ball.
- Small Rasgulla balls are ready. We now need to cook them with Sugar syrup.
- We have made around 8 Rasgulla out of 1 liter milk.
- Start with adding 1.5 cup Sugar and 3 cups water in pressure cooker. Bring it to a boil on high flame.
- Once you see the boil, add 2 Tbsp milk. Remove the white crust that comes up after adding milk.
- Now, we need to add Rasgulla in this Sugar syrup. Roll them with hands once again before adding.
- After adding all Rasgulla, close the cooker lid. Wait for 1 whistle on high flame.
- After a whistle on high flame, turn the stove on medium flame and let it cook for 10 minutes.
- After 10 minutes, switch off the stove and open the cooker lid.
- Rasgullas will be ready and have increased in their size and volume.
- Let them cool down to room temperature. You can even refrigerate them before serving.
