Rasagulla is one of the milk or cottage cheese based sweet, served with sugar syrup. The process of making this sweet may look lengthy or tedious but when you try this once, if you will understand the simplicity.The making of rasagulla will also help you to learn how to make home made paneer. These sweet little cheese balls are loved by everyone, especially kids. I thought, scripting alone may not help you to understand the better, so, given below the step by step pictures of making these sweet Rasagulla at your kitchen.

  • Milk (with Full Fat)-1 Liter
  • Lemon Extract – 3 Tsp
  • Sugar- 2 Cups
  • Water- 3 Cups
  • Elachi powder- 1 Tspn
  • Pistachios- 5 Nos(optional)
  • Saffron- a small piece (Optional)

To Make Home Made Paneer:
  • In a heavy bottomed pan, heat milk when it starts boiling add lemon extract, when it starts curdling switch off the flame( step 1 pic)
  • Transfer the curdled milk to a muslin cloth, show this towards cold water and clean it so that the lemon smell will go off (step 2 pic)
  • Then squeeze the excess water gently and Hang the muslin cloth for at least 20 minutes (step 3 pic)
  • Now kneed the crumble mixture (step 5 Pic) it like soft and smooth dough gently with hand and make small balls.

  • Apparently in a pressure cooker add water, sugar, elachi powder and boil it till it becomes thick just as sugar syrup.
  • Now add the small balls of prepared paneer one by one to the syrup, close the lid and cook for 2 whistles.
  • After 2 whistles, open the cooker and show the cooker immediately to running cold water, as it will take off all the heat.
  • When you open the cooker, as a surprise you could see those small balls has become double in the size (Step 6 Pic).
  • Store in refrigerator and serve with saffron toppings.


"You can add vinegar instead of lemon extract if the milk doesn’t curdles.
If you are using lemon extract make sure that it should be sour enough to curdle the milk.
You can also add some ice cubes along with lemon extract while milk curdles as it will turn the Rasagullas very soft."
