How to make Bengali Chenna Rasgulla
Boil the milk in a bowl and remove it from the gas once it boils to cool down.
Extract the lemon juice and add equal amount of water in it.
Once, the milk cool down add the lemon juice in it and stir it for a while. While stirring you’ll realise that milk is turning into curdle milk. The chenna and whey milk will start separating in the vessel, once they separate properly you can stop the stirring process. Take a strainer after the 2 minutes and strain the chenna out of the whey milk. Strain the chenna on the cotton cloth and add cold water over it to remove the flavour of lemon from the chenna.
Pick the cloth using both the hands and squeeze out the remaining water from it. Chenna is ready to prepare the rasgulla.
Take the chenna in a plate and mash it to make it smooth. During the process of mashing add the refined flour in the chenna and again mash it for 3-4 minutes. Prepare an extremely smooth dough and make the smaller sized round balls of it by dividing it into small portions. Almost 28 round balls are made out of the prepared dough.
For the sugar syrup
Add the sugar and the water in a vessel and cook them until the sugar dissolves in the water. Once, the sugar syrup boils add the chenna round balls in the sugar syrup.
The rasgullas will expand after the 5 minutes. Stir the rasgullas using a ladle but, make sure that it does not touches the rasgullas. Cover and cook them again for 17-18 minutes on the high flame. Check the sugar syrup after every interval of 4-5 minutes.
After the 15 minutes when sugar syrup decreases, add the lukewarm water in it and stir it for a while. Make sure that sugar syrup doesn’t loses its boiling point. Cook the rasgullas after adding 3 tbsp of water for the 3-4 minutes.
After this process check whether the rasgullas are prepared or not. Switch off the flame and leave the rasgullas in the sugar syrup itself to cool down. Dip the rasgullas in the sugar syrup for 5-6 hours. The prepared rasgullas are very spongy and soft. You can serve the rasgullas with the mango shake or the rabree.
- To prepare the rasgullas toned milk is the best option. Incase, you don’t have the toned milk then use the full cream milk to make it.
- Mashing the chenna and making it smooth is a must process.
- Add the balls in the sugar syrup only when it’s boiling.
- Add the water in the sugar syrup one by one. Make sure that sugar syrup is boiling.
- You can use the whey milk to prepare the vegetable or to knead the dough.
