Ragulla is one of the popular bengali sweets made from chenna or paneer. I am big fan of Bengali sweets and tried many of them in home.

Always use full cream milk for making chenna. I always prefer to use curd/yogurt to curdle the milk than lime juice. Lime juice will curdle the milk fast. You can use the whey drained to make chapati dough. Key to making soft rasgulla is kneading the chenna. Knead them till soft and smooth. Its been so busy and hectic last week so could not find time to update regularly. This week I am going to post three recipes with milk for blogging marathon themed under 1 ingredient 3 dishes.

Notes

Use full cream milk for making chenna

You can use any nuts of your choice for topping.

You can use lime juice for curdling the milk. I always prefer curd over lime juice as it tends to make it harden if cooked for long time.

Chenna should have little moisture while kneading. It should not be completely dry.

Rasgulla will absorb the sugar syrup when kept for one day. If you prefer more sweet can add upto 2 cups of sugar.

Check the chum chum post to cook rasgulla in open pan method. Since rasgulla will double in size while cooking use big size pan.

Don't overcook the rasgulla as it tends to harden.
