rasgulla reciperasgulla recipe | bengali rosogulla | how to make sponge rasgulla with step by step photo and video recipe. chenna based sweet is one of the common sweets made in bengali dessert which is known for its spongy and juicy texture. rasgulla is one such basic sweet which is made by curdling or spoiling milk and boiling in sugar water. the same process is made for other bengali sweets but this recipe is the basic chenna based sweet.

this is my second or i would say the better version of rasgulla recipe. i had posted this recipe with video almost 3 years back which was very popular. but i was getting several queries about it and even i realized that i may have skipped some minor steps. hence as part of revisiting my old recipes, i am reposting this rasgulla recipe. the simple and major trick i have introduced in this recipe is the use of ice-cold water. basically once the chenna balls are boiled in hot sugar water, it is immediately transferred to cold water. this helps to hold the shape of rosogulla and does not lose its bulginess. well, to be honest, it is not mandatory if you are using full cream but becomes essential if there is some confusion over the quality of milk and hence i thought of adding it in my post.

furthermore, i would like to add some more tips, suggestions, and variations to rasgulla recipe. firstly, i would heavily recommend using full cream milk or thick milk to make this recipe. you may use other variants with the ice technique but strictly avoid skim milk. secondly, the other important trick for this recipe is kneading the chenna. it has to be done thoroughly but gently. do not apply pressure while kneading it as it must hold together. lastly, the balls prepared must not have any cracks in it. try to knead the individual balls so that it holds together and forms crack free balls. otherwise, it may burst out while boiling in hot water.

finally, i request you to check my other dessert recipes collection with this post of rasgulla recipe. it mainly includes my other related recipes like, chocolate kulfi, shrikhand, bhapa doi, mango mousse, mango mastani, mango jelly, lapsi, chana dal payasam, ashoka halwa, apple kheer. further to these i would also like to mention my other similar recipe categories like,
