A popular Bengali dessert that has made its mark in Indian Cuisine. There are many ways of preparing rasgullas but the trial and tested method I follow is by using pressure cooker. A no fuss dessert which has stolen many hearts...

Ingredients Serving: 8

  1. Full cream milk 2 litre
  2. Citric acid 1tsp
  3. sugar 2 cups
  4. sugar 2 tsp
  5. Semolina/sooji 2tsp
  6. water 8cups
  7. 5 drops rose essence


  1. In a large wide pot heat milk. Meanwhile line a cheese cloth over a colander and set it aside.
  2. When the milk reaches boiling point add citric acid. Turn off the flame and wait for water and paneer to separate. Strain the paneer in cheese cloth. Hold the four corners of cheese cloth and wash paneer through cold running water to remove excess citric flavor.
  3. Grab the ends of the cheesecloth and twist the ball of paneer to squeeze out excess whey. Place this under heavy object/ weight for excess whey to separate. Keep this for 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Add 2 tsp sugar, 2 tsp sooji in a mixer jar/ hand blender along with paneer. Pulse this for a minute.
  5. Transfer to a wide plate and knead paneer with hand to form a smooth dough. Divide into 24 portions. Roll up each portion to smooth ball. Repeat for the rest of the portions.
  6. In the meanwhile, in a pressure cooker measure 8 cups of water and 2cups of sugar and heat to boiling , add the rolled balls one by one in cooker. Place the whistle and cook on medium flame till you get one whistle. Now reduce flame to low and cook further for 15 minutes.
  7. When the rasgulla comes to room temperature, transfer to a container and refrigerate. Add rose essence. Garnish with saffron and dry fruits (optional).
  8. Serve cold.
