RASGULLA (PANEER DUMPLINGS IN SUGAR SYRUP)

Yum

Hi friends, this is so late to post the sweet recipe that I prepared for diwali... But hope this will good start for christmas and new year and why not even Pongal too...  I prepared cornflour halwa, rasgulla, rasmalai, gulab jamun and kaju lotus for this diwali, two of the recipes I already posted during diwali... And will post these other recipes soon... Do u remember the cornflour halwa and gulab jamun...  Sorry friends due to frequent power cuts I couldn't schedule the post for the diwali so its delayed... 


Now am going to share my rasgulla recipe... usually am not fan for rasgulla, especially I prepared rasgulla for the rich taste of rasmalai... soon I will come with rasmalai recipe.... This is my first attempt to prepare rasgulla and it was come out very well... Mostly I could see pressure cooker method but that time my both cookers were occupied by some other recipes... I have seen some of them used open pot also...so I got confidence to prepare with open pot....  so come let see how to prepare...

Little about Rasgulla
Rasgulla is a cheese-based syrupy sweet dish originally from the Indian state of Orissa. It is popular throughout India and other parts of South Asia. The dish is made from ball shaped dumplings of Chenna(an Indian cottage cheese) and semolina dough, cooked in light syrup made of sugar. This is done until the syrup permeates the dumplings.

There are many variations in making rasgulla, they are usually served at room temperature or colder.  A popular variant in Orissa and Bengal is freshly prepared hot rasgullas. Here I prepared in the style of Northern India, the dish comes with flavored in saffron, rosewater and sometimes garnished with chopped almonds and pistachios.

Servings

INGREDIENTS
Home made Paneer - 200g (Got it from 1.75l of full cream milk)
Sugar -  1 cup
Rose water - 1 Tsp
Cardamom seeds or powder - 1 Tsp
Water - As you required
Badham - 3 chopped
Pistachios - 3 chopped



METHOD

  • Prepare home made paneer that I have already posted already so plz check the link..
  • Now knead the paneer well without any lumps and divide the paneer into small balls without any cracks on the surface.
  • Dust the plate with the flour and place the rolled paneer balls on it.

  • Combine the sugar with 3 cups of water in a large pan and heat and stirring continuously till the sugar dissolves.
  • When it starts boil and then add the paneer balls from the plate very carefully.
  • Cover with lid and cook for 15-20 minutes and check the consistency of the sugar syrup, dont allow to thick, if it happens sprinkle some water.

  • Check the rasgullas are cooked. This is determined by touch. If the rasgulla springs back and retains its shape when pressed, it is cooked. 
  • In this stage it can be doubled in size from the original size.
  • Add 1 Tsp of rose water at this stage before remove from the fire and transfer the rasgulla to a bowl along with 3 ladles of sugar syrup and 1 cup of water.

  • Cool and refrigerate for 2-3 hours  and garnish with chopped badham and pistachios and serve it...
