method

For paneers

Step 1

Bring milk to a boil in a pan.

step 2

Reduce the flame and add lemon juice. Keep stirring.

step 3

The milk curdles. At this point you need to keep stirring as well.

Step 4

When the curdling is complete, strain it with a muscled cloth. Wait for it to cool down.

Step 5

Squeeze the muscloth to remove all of the water.

Step 6

Tie a knot on the cloth and let it hang for 15-20 minutes. Now press on it by holding a heavy object on it for 40-45 minutes. Paneer is ready. You can use it right away or keep it in the refrigerator for later use.

step 2

Divide the dough in equal parts. Slightly flatten the balls, being careful not to crack.

Heat sugar and water over a low flame to make sugar syrup. When the sugar dissolves, raise the flame and let it cook for about 3-4 minutes.

Step 4

Reduce the flame and add the rasgullas one at a time. Cover the pan with a lid and let it cook for about 15 minutes. Move easily at intervals.
