First of all, we need to make paneer :-


  • Boil milk in a heavy bottom pan stirring continuously. When milk started boiling keep the flame low and  Remove the cream forms above the milk. Let it boil for sometime.


  • Switch off the flame and Add lemon juice, stir to mix well.  Milk will curdle and the milk  & whey will begin to split.


  • Now strain the cottage cheese in a cheese cloth lined above the strainer.wash it with under tap  water. It will  remove the smell of lemon juice.


  • Tie the cheese cloth and squeeze as much as possible to drain the excess water. Leave it for an hour, allow the water drained completely.


  • Now take the prepared cottage cheese, and transfer it to a clean kitchen counter, add yellow food colour, cardamom powder and knead it for 10 minutes until all the cottage cheese comes together to  forms a dough and palms looks oily.


  • Divide it into equal size balls. You ll get 10 big size  or 12-13 medium sized rosogolla.


  • Stuff the cottage cheese balls with a Nakuldana and shape these into equal roundels, ensure that there should be no crack.


  • Keep these aside.


  • In a pressure cooker add water, sugar, kesar and cardamom powder and boil till sugar melts.


  • Carefully put the prepared cottage cheese balls into the sugar syrup.


  •  You don’t need to add all the balls at a time. There should be enough space so that cottages cheese balls will expand.


  • After 15 minutes switch off the flame and wait for 10 minutes.


  • Open the pressure cooker and carefully take out the rosogolla from the sugar syrup.


  • Put these in cold water and again add rest of the balls and cook it till done.


  •  This time if your sugar syrup seems thick add 3-4tbsp of water, let it boil then add the cottage cheese balls.


  • Close the pressure cooker ,keep the flame high  and wait for one whistle. Then keep the flame low and cook till 15minutes.


  • Boil the sugar syrup for sometime and let it be little thick.
  • Remove it from the flame and pour in a bowl.


  • Wait till sugar syrup becomes warm. Add the rassogula and keep in refrigirator for 4-5 hour.

And enjoy.




Notes :

  •  For curdling the milk vinegar, whey or curd can be added.


  • Afrer straining the paneer, washing is necessary to rinse off the lemon smell.


  • Tie the paneer in cheese cloth until the water drains out. You too can keep this above a colander and keep a heavy thing on it to drain the excess water.


  • Kneading part is very important to get a good rosogolla.


  • Yes, the food colour is optional. You can avoid it to get a white rosogolla.


  • When forming balls be very careful, if there will be a single crack the cottage cheese balls will broke in sugar Syrup.


  • Put the rosogolla in enough cold water so that they will retain there share.


  • Add the rassogula into the sugar syrup when sugar syrup is warm not hot otherwise it will broke.


  • Nakuldana is used for creating a hollow inside the cottage cheese balls. It can be avoided.
