Janmashtami Prasad ... Juicy and Yummy Rasagulla

Janmashtami Prasad ... Juicy and Yummy Rasagulla Rasagulla

Juicy Rasagulla

This year Janmashtami I couldn't go to ISKCON temple. So I decided to have Pooja at home. I planned to make rasgulla to please Krishna ji. I wanted to distribute Prasad to my neighbors and near ones also. Rasagulla is one of the easiest sweets to make, quite healthy as compared to other desserts which are filled with too much sugar and ghee. To make around 30 to 40 small rasagullas I got one and half kg of toned milk . 

Juicy spongy Rasagulla Recipe

Ingredients Required: milk, sugar, elaichi powder, lemon 

Step 1: Boil the milk in a pan. Reduce the flame. Add fresh juices of two lemon. Keep stirring until the cottage cheese lumps get separated from the milk. After milk has become completely thin and lumps are separated, put off the flame.

Step 2: Separate the tender cottage cheese from the liquid using a strainer. Pour cold running water on it. With the help of a thin cotton cloth remove all liquid from the cheese. Squeeze the cloth till the cheese is soft and dry . Let it cool down . 

Step 3: When the cottage cheese is cold, knead it for 15 mins. 

Step 4: After kneading for 15 mins, let it rest for 5 mins. After that make small round balls of the dough. You should be able to make around 30 to 40 small balls .

Step 5: Pour water in a pressure cooker. Add sugar and small pinch of elaichi powder  into it to make sugar water. It should not be in syrup form. Adjust the quantity of sugar depending on how sweet you want your rasagulla to be. Let it boil for 5 mins.

Step 6: Put the white balls in the pressure cooker one by one. Keep space for rasagulla to expand. So don't put all balls in one go. You may want to do in 3 or 4 rounds depending on the size of your pressure cooker. Close the pressure cooker lid, let the flame be on till 3 whistles. Let it rest. When you open the lid, you will see the white balls converted into juicy rasagulla, double the size of the original round balls . 

Enjoy !!!
