Rasgulla is a Spongy & Sweet dessert popular in Indian, especially in Odisha, West Bengal. The dish originated in Odisha centuries ago, while a whitish spongy variant, it’s called “Bengali Rasgulla” or “Sponge Rasgulla”.became popular in Bengal in the 19th century.
Rasgulla is made from ball-shaped dumplings of chhena(an Indian cottage cheese) and, cooked in light syrup made of sugar. This is done until the syrup permeates the dumplings.
“Rasgulla” If the chenna is over kneaded, it won’t work, if it’s less kneaded, it won’t workout! So, see and consistency and prepare this… The key to getting a perfect rasgulla is lying on the moisture content and the kneading.
This is my kid’s favorite sweet and I often make it for them, it vanishes in few seconds. I just love the texture & Spongy and when I squeeze it comes back to its shape and taste-wise divine.
It’s divine desserts according to me Gulab Jamun also round in shape and I feel both desserts belong to the same family 😛 it’s tastes terrific. Well, let’s begin with the recipe.
1 liter Milk
2 Cups Sugar
2 1/2 Cups Water
3 Green Cardoman.
2 – 3 tbsp. Lemon
1 Cup Ice water
Mix the Lime juice with 1 tsp. of water and keep aside.

I am tempted to make them 🙂 I didn’t realize 20-25 minutes was enough to dry out the moisture, I always leave mine out for several hours!
I always leave chhena always 20 – 25 because I squeeze enough water, try mine once and sure it will not fail
