"Wishing All A Happy n Prosperous Diwali !!!!"
Diwali is a festival of lights and sweets all around in India and the most cherished month of the year.Though we don't celebrate Diwali as such but the lights,crackers, and sweets pulls me to the zeal n enthusiasm since childhood.The boxes of sweets piled up in the refrigerators after Diwali reminds me of those days.Dad's friends,colleagues and neighbours were the popular visitors of the day and we used to wait for the mithai dabbas just to gobble it up.And in the evenings to light up the verandahs with diyas,we used to persuade our dad to buy the diyas and small packet of crackers just to enjoy the day with others!!
Coming back to the recipe,a popular bengali sweet ,Rasogullas for today.This recipe is just bookmarked from Aarthi @ Yummy Tummy .This sounded very simple to prepare and so thought to prepare and share with all.I have followed the same steps and this was my first attempt to make rasagullas,so the shapes have slightly cracked but tasted very good..
milk 1 litre
lemon juice 3 tsp
water 1 cup
sugar 250 gms
Boil the milk in a pan and bring to boil .Add the lemon juice and let it curdle.Simmer the heat for another 2-3 minutes and then put off the flame.
Drain the contents into a cheese cloth and let it stand for 1 hour till the whey separates from the milk protein.
Hang the contents for few hours in the cheese cloth till the water completely separates from it.Knead the mix in a bowl for few minutes till it becomes soft.
Make small balls out of it(I made 10 balls with 1 litre milk) and leave aside.
Heat water in a pressure cooker ,add sugar and bring to boil.Place all the balls in it,close the lid and let it whistle once.Put off flame and wait till pressure is released.
Serve the yummy Rasgullas!!
