How to Make Rasgulla Recipe | Bengali Spongy Rasgulla Recipe
Boil milk in a heavy bottom pan. Add a spoon full of strained lemon juice or vinegar. Stir continuously and milk will curdle.
Quickly strain paneer in a cotton cloth. Wash paneer in running water to remove away all the citrus taste from paneer. Hang paneer/chenna for 20- 30 minutes until the water stops dripping. This step is important. If water is not drained well from paneer, rasgulla will start disintegrating in sugar syrup.
Knead the paneer finely with your hands. Knead for 8-10 minutes for a smooth dough. The dough should not feel sticky at all. Squeeze and press in between your palms couple of times before rolling it like a ball. This will prevent cracks in rasgulla.
