Who don’t like and who don’t make this one? Everyone right. But this is foolproof recipe as per me to get soft and spongy rasgulla. Well this is not first time I am making this but before that I experiment with Chocolate Rasgulla in Brown Sugar Syrup and Rabdi Rasgulla but never gave you recipe of regular rasgulla.
1 cup of fresh paneer (make paneer and wash it thoroughly and leave it for 20 minutes and then start mashing it with your hands)
pinch of saffron – optional
For sugar syrup
1 cup sugar
4 cup water
Pinch of Cardamom / saffron
Take the paneer and add saffron and mix till nice balls form up, just take not more than 15 minutes. Make balls and keep it aside.
Make syrup and Add balls in it , if you have too many balls , make it in batch . After adding balls, just cover it and let it cook for 15 minutes. Take it out and put it in cold water.
In that leftover syrup, add 1/4 cup more sugar and cup of water and let it boil and make sugar to dissolve. Once sugar is dissolve, shut off the gas. Once the syrup is cold, add the balls , after squeezing water , into that syrup. Leave it overnight for best result or 2-3 hours in fridge to chill.
Enjoy it once its chill.
Don’t throw away that syrup, use it in your coffee or tea or where ever you use sugar. Best way to use up any sugar syrup is , make sweet shakarpara, instead of melting sugar, you already have it, just add it in flour, make a dough and make diamonds and cut it and fry it.
