Rasagulla - RCI Bengal

Tomorrow Appa is celebrating his birthday.Appa
is more like a friend to me and my sister.He is a great
guide , advisor to all of us.But when coming to food ,
Appa likes food only when it is perfect.It is very
difficult to satisfy Appa.So I never enter kitchen
at my mom's place.For one Diwali I made Rasagullas
and took to Amma's place.Thank God....Appa
liked that very much and he asked me to make
it for his birthday too.Indeed it was a great
compliment for me.This recipe is adopted from
Ms.Mallika Badrinath's 100 sweets.
Ingredients
Milk - 1 lr
Lemon juice - 1/4 cup
Maida - 1 tsp
Sugar - 2 cups
water - 3 1/2 cups
Rose water - 1 tsp
Method
1.Boil the milk in a big pan.
2.Add 1 tsp of water to lemon juice.
3.When the milk starts boiling add lemon juice
slowly.
4.The milk begins to curdle and the water separates.
5.Remove from fire.
6.Drain off the water and tie the paneer in the cheese cloth
and let it hang for 1 hr.
7.Take the paneer and add maida .
8.Knead slowly to form a soft ball.
9.Make small sized balls.
10.Add sugar and water in a wide vessel.
11.When the syrup gets boiling , take away
1 cup of syrup from it .
12.Add 1/2 cup of cold water to 1 cup of sugar syrup
and keep it aside.
13.This is the diluted syrup.
14.Now add paneer balls to the sugar syrup which is
boiling.
15.Close the lid .
16.After 5 min add 1 tsp of diluted syrup on each paneer balls.
17.Again close the lid .
18.Repeat the same for 3 times.
19.Adding diluted syrup is important to get
paneer balls puffy.
20.Remove from fire and let it cool completely.
This bowl of Rasagullas goes to my Appa
