Although this is a Bengali rasgulla, it is liked by people from all over the country and abroad. You can make Bengali rasgulla at your home birthday party or at small parties too.

The preparation of rasgulla can be done by adding arrowroot to fresh chenna or without adding arrowroot. Rasgullas will be slightly spongy if made by adding arrowroot and too much delicious. Rasgullas will be spongier if prepared without adding arrowroot to chenna.
Now, these days we usually prepare rasgullas without arrowroot. If we have less time then we can make rasgullas by boiling them inside a cooker.

Please keep in mind that to prepare chenna, always cool the milk a little. If you want to cool the milk then please add a half cup of water to it immediately. Chenna becomes soft, and Rasgullas prepare for this Chenna becomes spongy by doing this.

Rasgullas will be hard if Chenna is hard.
Chenna balls will break and get dissipated if these were not put in boiling water.

  1. First of all, put the milk on to boil, and after the milk turn off the gas

    And leave it for 2 minutes. Then put vinegar in it and mix it slowly. And you will see that your milk has curdled

    Now put a cotton cloth on a vessel and put the curdled milk in it. After that wash it with cold water in a proper way. So that whatever sourness of vinegar is removed from it.

    Then remove the water by pressing it with light hands. Don't release too much water from the paneer; otherwise, it will harden and the rasgulla will not be good.

    Then leave it tight for two to three hours.

    Then put a pan on the gas and put 1 cup of sugar, 4 cups of water, and cardamom in it, and let the sugar dissolve on low heat.

    Till then we make paneer balls, and for that take out the paneer on a plate.

    Then mix it with the back of your hand.

    Then put flour in it and mix it again for 5 minutes.

    And here you can see that our batter is leaving a little ghee, which means our batter is ready to make rasgulla.


    Then take a little batter and make balls one by one, and see if there are no cracks in the balls; if there are, your batter is made here; our balls are well made, so we will make plain balls like this.
    Here, I have made all the balls for rasgulla.

    And by then your sugar syrup would also be ready. Make the gas flame a little high and put the rasgulla tablet

    After a while, you will see that the size of Bengali rasgula has doubled from what it was supposed to be.

    Saka means your Bengali rasgulla is cooked well. Now turn off the gas and leave it to cool down for a while.

    Then take it out in a bowl and leave it to cool for 2–3 hours (do not keep it in the fridge).

    Then take it out in a serving bowl and serve


Do not remove excess water from the paneer.
Rasgulla's balls should be very smooth. There should not be any cracks in it; otherwise, the rasgulla may burst into the sugar syrup.
The sugar syrup should be boiling while you are pouring the rasgulla balls.
