Milk – 600ml
Water – 750ml
Sugar – 150gms or to taste
Lime – 1 (extract juice from it)
Heat the milk in a heavy bottomed pan on a high flame. Once the milk starts to boil, add the lemon juice slowly and stir the milk gently. The milk will start to curdle slowly and keep stirring it in a slow flame for 3 minutes, until the milk fat is separated completely from the whey. Now strain the paneer in a thin muslin cloth.
Pour some cold water over the paneer to take out the flavor of the lemon juice. Now strain the water out, squeezing the cloth. The water in the paneer needs to be squeezed just enough so that the paneer is not too dry.
To check if enough water is out of the paneer, take a little piece of paneer on your palm and rub with your fingers. After rubbing the paneer for about 15-20 seconds, you should be able to make a firm but smooth ball. If the paneer is too dry, add a few drops of water, using the water squeezed from the paneer. Once the paneer is drained, rub with your palm until the paneer becomes smooth dough and your hands turn a little greasy. Divide the dough into equal parts and roll them into smooth balls. I got 10 small balls.
Mix required amount of sugar and water in a pressure cooker on high flame and bring to boil. Let it boil in simmer flame for about 5 minutes. The cooker should be large enough since the rasgullas will expand to double in size, once it is cooked. Now add the paneer balls in the cooker and close the pressure cooker and let it cook in high flame. As soon as you hear one whistle, simmer the flame and let it cook in simmer flame itself for about 6 minutes and switch off the flame.
Wait for few minutes and then release the pressure in the cooker and transfer the rasgullas and sugar syrup in a large bowl and refrigerate it atleast for 2 hours. Serve it chilled.
