Rasgulla Recipe | Paneer Recipe | Easy Sweet Recipe

I goggled and got so many Rasgulla recipes then I got this one on Sify.com. I tried and in first time it came out very  nice but didn't get time to post and some problem in blog also that's why after a long break I am here. I tried 2 methods and sharing here but I felt  first one is very easy. 

Preparation Time  20 mins    Cooking time: 25 mins    |  Makes: 20 Nos.
1 ltr. milk 
3 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp - sooji (semolina)
1 1/2 cup - sugar
1 1/2 cup - water
8-10 glasses water to cook the rasgullas

Boil milk and add lemon juice to the boiling milk.
Continue heating until milk completely curdles and you could see the whey water getting separated completely. Switch off the stove and add ice cubes.
Now take a cheese cloth or thin dupatta and strain the paneer. 
I did this with the cloth over a metal strainer and a bowl below to collect the whey water.
Wash with cold water to remove sour taste.

Make a potli /bag and at the same time keep squeezing it so as to remove the water.
When you see a ball of chenna in the center of the muslin cloth it is a sign that the chenna is ready.
take Paneer and start kneading until smooth by hand but For kneading I used mixer grinder it's easy way to get smooth texture.

Meanwhile boil about 7-8 glasses of water in a large cooker/wide vessel.Take kneaded paneer add Rava and knead again.Now make small balls with paneer 

When the water starts boiling lower the flame and add balls to the boiling plain water (you do not need the sugar syrup at this stage).
Take  1 whistle on High flame then lower the flame cook for another 7 mins.Turn of heat and open the cooker only after it has cooled down completely .It will be double in size.

Meanwhile Take 1 1/2 cup water and 1 1/2 cup sugar and boil it 4-5 min. and keep aside.
Now carefully remove the rasgullas in a bowl and add warm the sugar syrup

Let cool at room temp then put in the refrigerator for 4-5 hrs.
Serve Chilled.

If you wish can add rose essence in sugar syrup.
Can use curd,vinegar also instead of lemon juice.
You can use ready Paneer also(like Amul,hatsan etc.)

Another Method also is here-
Take 2 cup sugar and 3 1/2 cup water ,elachi powder in a pressure cooker and boil it.

After the sugar gets dissolved completely and the syrup boils,add the paneer balls  carefully one by one.

Cover the pressure cooker and cook it till you get one whistle on high flame. Then cook another 5-7 min. on low flame.

Put off the flame and let it cool by itself.

But I felt First one is easy.
