Hello my dear friends and fellows!
Welcome back to my space Dish Of Delight once again. Roshogolla or Rasgulla, by whichever name you may call, is one of the favourite sweet dish for many people. In my early post, I have already shared the recipe for making Gurer Roshogolla i.e roshogolla in gur syrup. Today I am sharing the recipe for making roshogolla in sugar syrup.
So lets start with the recipe for making Roshogolla in sugar syrup.
Full cream milk 1.5 litres
Cooking vinegar/ curd, as per need
Corn flour 1 and ½ tsp
Sugar 1 and ½ cup
Crushed cardamom 3 or 4 (optional)
Here, 1 cup = 250 ml
- Pour milk into a deep bottomed cooking vessel and place it at medium high flames. Stir at intervals and bring it to a boil
- Once milk starts boiling, switch off the flames and let it cool down a little, but not cold
- If you are using vinegar, dilute the vinegar by 1:1 ratio with water. Now, add the vinegar or curd to the milk little by little and keep on stirring until milk curdles to form chhena
- Now strain out the chhena in a clean piece of cloth and keep it hanged for an hour or two. Do not squeeze out the extra water from the chhena or else it will yield hard roshogolla
- After this, take out the chhena on a flat surface and knead it for 7 to 8 minutes
- Then add the corn flour and again knead it for 1 or 2 minutes until a smooth texture dough is reached
- Now take the sugar into a wide mouthed cooking vessel, add 3 and ½ cups of water and place it at high flames. Stir and mix well until the sugar completely dissolves, and bring the water to a boil
- By the time the water starts boiling, divide the dough into smaller parts of equal size of your choice and roll these between your palms to make chhena balls. While choosing the size of the ball, just remember that it will double its size after getting cooked. There should not be any crack on the chhena balls or else these will break while cooking.
- Now, once the water starts boiling, drop in the chhena balls into it on by one, but do not stir
- Cover and cook at maximum flames for 10 minutes
- After 10 minutes, slightly stir the roshogollas, add the crushed cardamom and again cover and cook at medium flames for 15 to 20 minutes
- Now, take one roshogolla and drop it into a glass half filled with water. If the roshogolla sinks in the water then your roshogolla is done. Put the roshogolla back into the syrup
- Switch off the flames and let it cool down
- Enjoy homemade soft roshogollas with your family and friends.
*I did not use lemon juice to make chhena, as it will require to wash the chhena with water. This in turn will harden the chhena and it will not yield soft roshogollas.
