Rasgulla is an Indian sweet made from curdling milk , straining the watery part from it and kneading the milk solid left in the strainer or colander to form balls. These balls are then cooked till they puff up. A well made rasgulla must be spongy, light and juicy, but not chewy.
This sweet is mostly eaten as a dessert.

- Collect cream that forms over the milk.
- Boil on low heat and add in the lemon and water mixture slowly until the milk curdles.
- Turn off the heat and allow the mixture to sit for about 5 minutes.
- Using a colander, strain the water and leave the paneer in the colander for about 4 hours.
- Mash the paneer to a smooth consistency, add some flour to it and continue mashing.
- Pour six cups of water into a sauce pan and bring to boil.
- Shape the paneer into smooth balls and gently drop them into the boiling water.
- Cover the saucepan with a lid and allow the paneer to cook until it puffs up. This should be in about 20 minutes.
