What is rasgulla?
Rasgulla is a well-known Bengali sweet made of milk. For making rasgulla, the milk is curdled until it forms the solids from coagulated milk. The solids that coagulate the milk are then removed from the whey, and then kneaded using some of the sooji (semolina) or all-purpose flour (maida). Round balls are created from the kneaded chenna that is later made into sugar syrup and cooked within a pot or pan. Some rose water or cardamom powder adds flavor to the rasgulla.
A spongy rasgulla must be light and soft. In this article, I have listed below the most commonly asked queries (asked from readers via the comments section of this article) with some tips and ideas to help you prepare a spongy rasgulla in your kitchen.
What is the best quality of the milk used to make sweets made from chenna, such as the cham cham or rasgulla, make sure to use whole cream milk, or whole milk that is full fat. It is also possible to use homogenised as well as pasteurised milk. Be aware that milk must be fresh and within its shelf time. Make rasgulla only with skimmed milk, toned milk or milk with low fat.
What is the best way to determine the proper level of moisture in the chenna? Rasgulla made of Chenna. Chenna is made from whey-drained milk solids derived through curdling of milk. The balance of moisture is crucial in chenna, and is the most important factors to achieve the right texture for the rasgulla. Therefore, if the chenna is soaked with excessive moisture or water it will break down or breaks when cooking. If there’s not enough water in the chenna then the rasgulla turns hard and dense, then expands or shrinks upon cooling and cooking.
When you’re kneading chenna you can easily determine the content of moisture within it. If you notice that the chenna appears to be moist or watery, this suggests that it is soaked in water. For a solution, include maida (all purpose flour) to ensure that the additional water is taken up. The other option is to put a heavy load on the chenna to ensure that any excess water or whey drains.
While kneading surface of the chenna is dry and crumbly it means the moisture is lower inside it. To correct this, sprinkle 1 or 2 teaspoons of water when making a knead. This will create some moisture to the chenna. The presence of moisture in chenna aids in binding and produces soft rasgulla. But take note that excessive moisture or water in the chenna can ruin it.
What’s the duration to knead the chenna? Based upon the amount of force applied and pressure exerted through your fingers, your timing will differ. There is however an experiment you can try – that can be used to cut off kneading chenna once your palms start to get greasy. The chenna’s fat is released during kneading. Therefore, your palms will become slightly oily while kneading. Once you’ve reached this point you should stop kneading the chenna and create round balls out of it. The chenna must be kneaded until it forms a smooth large ball that should be in a position to be able to be gathered without breaking or breaking.
4. How thick is sugar syrup? Rasgulla is dipped in sugar syrup, which is liquid and does not have any string consistences. This means that you don’t need to cook the syrup to it has one or two string consistencies. This consistency is watery and helps the rasgulla absorb the sugar syrup, making it sweet.
5. Why has rasgulla turned rubbery? the rasgulla balls have been overcooked, they’ll become hard and rubbery.
6. What is the reason why rasgulla has shrunk or become flat? Use a wide pan to cook rasgulla, so that the rasgulla ball will easily fit and expand upon the cooking. Don’t stir the rasgulla with a spoon because the rasgulla could break. It is therefore better to use a pot with handles that allow you to stir and shake the pot while using the handles. Another important thing to remember is that the rasagulla may be flattened or shrunk when the chenna is not dry.
How do you know whether the rasgulla has been cooked? During cooking, the rasgulla will expand and expand in size. In this recipe the cooking time can vary between 8 and 10-minutes or longer. The variation in time is based on variables like what size you choose for the rasgulla’s size and the kind of pan, the heat intensity, etc. Therefore, after 7 to 10 minutes you are able to remove the rasgulla from the pan and store it in a bowl or mug of water. If the rasgulla is able to settle at the bottom, then it’s cooked. If it is floating on top of the water, it’s not cooked enough.
8. How can I store rasgulla? After making the rasgulla, when they are cool in room temperatures, cool them and refrigerate them. Don’t store them in the room as they will spoil.
9. What else can you do with the sugar syrup left over? The remaining syrup can be used to create the nimbu pani (lemonade). It can also be added to shikanjvi , fruit juices or to batters when making cakes.
What is the best way to create Rasgulla
Place 1 litre of whole milk into an oven and bring it in a boil over an unrestricted to medium-low flame. I used organic cow’s milk, which is not loaded with many fats. If you are using buffalo’s milk it contains excessive fat, which results in an extremely thick layer of malai/cream floating over the top. You must remove the layer of malai prior to proceeding to make the chenna.
When the milk is warming up in a strainer, line the bowl with cheesecloth or even a Muslin.
Keep stirring the milk frequently to ensure that the froth does not formed on top , and the base doesn’t get burned or the milk solids are stuck on below.
Once the milk is at an unbeatable boil, turn down the heat to the lowest. Incorporate 1 to 3 tablespoons of lemon juice. Start by adding 1 tablespoon lemon juice and mix thoroughly. If the milk isn’t completely curdled, add 1 tablespoon more. Make sure to keep the juice of a lemon in a safe place in your bag. Based on the caliber of your milk you might need to add between 1 and 3 tablespoons of juice from a lemon. Stir before adding lemon juice. Sometimes, I’ve added 1 tablespoon lemon juice and the milk curdled. Other times I have had to add 3 tablespoons. Vinegar can also be used in place or lemon juice. Another option is yogurt or curd. You can add 4 to 5 tablespoons of yogurt, or more if necessary. With yogurt , you don’t have to wash the chenna with water in the future.
