S loves rasgullas. Last weekend when we went to the Indian grocery store, he wanted to buy them from a tin but wanted to make them for him. So I made them today. Ingredients:

Making of chenna  here
 Chenna made from 1/2 gallon of milk(drain with out any water)
For sugar syrup:
2 cups sugar(reduce if u like)
4 cups water
1/4 tsp cardamom pwd
3-4 drops rose essence or rose water

Boil sugar and water along with cardamom powder in a heavy bottomed pan and keep aside. Meanwhile, knead the chenna till it becomes smooth and when u roll, it makes a perfect ball. Make small marble sized balls(they will double in size) and slowly drop in the boiling sugar syrup.Cover and cook for 10-12 min on low heat,turning once in between(u will see that they have doubled in size). Add  rose essence just before turning off the stove.Remove into a bowl carefully along with the syrup and set aside to cool.When cool refrigerate for atleast 5-6 hours.Serve chilled or room temperature. Enjoy!!!

Note: Rasgulla can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight box for upto 5 days.
