Rasagulla - Homemade


  Very often do my friends question me about how i get time to do blogging may be taking pictures for that matter, well as every other blogger might know, its pretty hard to balance things. But when it comes to do something you love;  you always try your best in spite of busy schedules . In between doing the household chores and handling a full time hyper kiddo, its sometimes hard for me too. But i really can't help it now, i really do not think that i may want to give it a break , at least at this point it is a NO. After staring blogging, i had a long break continuing to the next 2 years, but i was still busy in my kitchen trying out stuffs, but none reached the blog space.


Now my little girl she is like my driving force, and its like great reaching out to new friends as well as new food.So, this time its Rasagulla, one of the most sought out dessert of all times. I always wanted to give it a try and at last i did try it from Manjula's Kitchen, it was just awesome and i have atleast made it 3 - 4 times after my first trial.

Rasagulla - Homemade

Ingredients:
4 cups Whole Milk
1/4 cup Lemon juice - mixed with 1/2 cup hot water
1 1/2 cups Sugar ( refer notes )
4 1/2 cup Water
2 Elaichi ( crushed )

Method:
Heat Milk in a heavy bottom pan, stirring every now and then.
Once boiled pour in the lemon juice + water mixture to it, still stirring.
The curd will separate from the whey.
Strain it through a strainer lined with a muslin cloth.
Wrap the cloth and rinse under cold water, and squeeze well, it helps in to take out the sourness.
Keep a heavy pan on top of the paneer to take out the excess water for 1/2 hr to 1 hr.
Now take the crumbles paneer and knead it to a soft dough,  divide it into equal shaped balls.
Heat water + sugar + elachi in a pressure cooker and let it boil.
Add in the balls carefully, and cook for 1 whistle on medium to low heat.
Release the pressure and transfer it, once cooled chill and Serve.

Notes : Some friends who tasted these said the sweetness was a bit less, but we felt it was just perfect, so if you feel it to be less sweet, add in more !!!
