Rasgulla is a delicious dessert that has been enjoyed for generations. It is a popular sweet in India that is loved by people of all ages. The soft and spongy texture of Rasgulla combined with its sweet syrupy flavor makes it a tantalizing dessert to the senses.

The Perfect Rasgulla Recipe

To make the perfect Rasgulla, you will need a few key ingredients:

  • 1 kg of paneer (cottage cheese)
  • 3 tbsp of all-purpose flour (maida)
  • 3 cups of sugar
  • 4 cups of water
  • 1 tsp of cardamom powder
  • A pinch of saffron (optional)


Begin by grating the paneer until it is soft and fluffy. Be sure to use fresh paneer for the best results. Next, add the all-purpose flour to the grated paneer and knead it for 2-3 minutes until smooth and soft.

Next, divide the paneer dough into small balls, making sure there are no cracks on the surface. Press down on the balls gently to ensure that they are smooth and even. Next, in a large pot, dissolve 3 cups of sugar in 4 cups of water and bring it to a boil. Once the sugar has dissolved completely, add the paneer balls to the pot and cover it with a tight-fitting lid.

Cook the Rasgullas on medium heat for about 20 minutes or until they have doubled in size. Once cooked, drain the Rasgullas and let them cool. They will begin to shrivel as they cool down, so do not be alarmed.

Final Steps

The final step is to prepare the syrup. In a separate pot, mix together 2 cups of sugar with 3 cups of water and bring it to a boil. Add a pinch of saffron and cardamom powder to the pot for added flavor and aroma. Once the syrup has reduced and thickened, add the cooked Rasgullas to the syrup and let them soak for at least an hour.

You can now serve the delicious Rasgullas to your friends and family. These spongy and syrupy desserts are a perfect end to any meal and are sure to leave your guests feeling satisfied and happy.
