Being odia Sweets are loved by everyone in our family and Rasgulla being in the top of the list.
Recently I have been experimenting with different flavours and today I want to share with you the flavour of orange in our Rasgulla which has been a hit with my family.
Milk - 1 litre
Lemon Juice - 2 Tbsp
Sugar - 2 cups
Water - 3 Cups
Fresh Orange Juice - 1 cup
Cardamom Powder - 1/4 Tsp
Rose essence - 1/2 tsp (optional)
Boil the Milk and when it starts boiling simmer and add the lemon juice to it. you will notice all the milk will curdle into chena.
Now using muslin cloth strain the chena and wash it with running cold water to get rid of the smell of lemon completely.
Now squeeze all the excess water completely.
Now take out the chena or paneer and knead it well for 10 minutes till it is smooth.
Now prepare small balls out of it.
Now take a Pressure cooker add water, sugar, cardamom powder,orange juice,rose essence. Let it boil. Now keep it on medium flame. Slowly put all the paneer ball into it.
Close the lid and let it pressure cook for 3-4 whistles.
