Rasagullas at home?? Yes!! you can prepare it instantly. You will need just 3 ingredients and you can prepare it in an hour. Give a try to Rasagullas this Diwali, and surprise your dear ones.. The recipe follows..


Yields : Around 8 Rasagulla

Preparation Time : 1 hour


High  Fat Milk        - 500 ml
Sugar                       - 1.5 cups
Water                       - 5 cups
Lemon Juice            - 1.5 tbsp


  • Boil milk. After it boils, switch off the flame ,add lemon juice to it and mix well. You can see milk start curdling. Let it sit for 10 minutes and after that strain curdled milk. The lemon juice specified would be enough for making the milk curdle. But if the milk dint curdle yet add some more lemon juice. Transfer the curd to a cloth which can absorb water.. here in my case i have used a cotton cloth.Squeeze out water, Tie the knot and hang on to a high place. leave it for 30 minutes.
  • You needn't hang paneer for a longer time for making rasagullas. The paneer should be little wet only. Keep on kneading paneer, until all of it joins together. It took 15 minutes for me to achieve the required consistency. Kneading paneer plays an important role in this recipe. If you didn't knead paneer well, chances are there that rasagullas will get broken when it boils in sugar syrup.
  • After kneading well, make small balls out of kneaded paneer.
  • Take a heavy bottomed pan. Add 1.5 cups of sugar and 5 cups of water to it. You can increase the sugar quantity according to your taste. You can taste sugar syrup and conclude on the amount of sugar needed.Cook it in high flame. You will see sugar has dissolved and when the sugar syrup boils, add paneer balls to it. Cover with a lid and cook in medium flame for about 15 minutes. The sugar syrup should always be boiling. Keep on stirring in between in 5 minutes interval. 
  • After 15 minutes, you can see your rasagullas are ready. It should have doubled the size. You will be left out with lot of sugar syrup. Use it for any other sweets. Adding lot of water to sugar syrup is mandatory since you are cooking rasagullas directly in sugar syrup, otherwise you will end up with rasagullas sticked to the bottom of pan.   Transfer rasagullas along with enough sugar syrup to a bowl and let it sit for atleast 6 hours. It wold have soaked well after 6 hours. Enjoy your Rasagullas!!
