So,let’s start making some delicious Rosogolla πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹

Type- Dessert, Sweet

Preparation time – 15-20 minutes

Cooking time – 15-20 minutes

Ingredients :

  • 4 cups whole milk full fat (you can take 2 cups cow milk and 2 cups buffalo milk also)
  • 3 tbs vinegar
  • 3 tbs water
  • 1 cups sugar
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 2 tbs milk
  • 2 tbs all purpose flour
  • 4 tbs water


  • First step is to curdle the milk: For that in a deep dish pan add 4 cups of full fat whole milk bring it boil and in another bowl add 3 tbs water and 3 tbs vinegar and mix
  • Stir the milk for 25-30 seconds
  • Now add the vinegar mixture spoon by spoon into the milk and stir
  • Don’t put the vinegar mixture all at a time
  • Add spoon by spoon and stir
  • And you can see the milk is slowly curdling
  • Keep on adding the vinegar mixture until the cheese and the water separates
  • Now drain it on a cheese cloth (muslin cloth or any clean cloth)
  • Do not forget to reserve some of these drained water for an important use in this recipe
  • Wash the cheese with fresh water 2-3 times
  • Now in that cloth squeeze the cheese so that all the water comes out
  • Hang it for 5-8 minutes and that’s enough
  • Take it out on a big flat plate where you can knead it
  • Second important step is kneading: our goal will be to see that there is no grainy cheese left after kneading
  • Do not over knead or you will end up into hard balls of cheese instead of soft spongy balls
  • Now make small balls out of it (preferably 10-12)
  • In another deep dish pan add 1 cup of sugar and 4 cups of water
  • Mix and add 2 tbs milk to remove the dirt
  • You can see that scum is gathering,just spoon them out
  • And now bring the syrup to boil
  • At this point add the cheese balls to the reserved water we kept after draining
  • Keep it for 3-5 minutes and drain
  • Third step will be foaming: make a slurry with 2 tbs all purpose flour and 4 tbs water
  • Add this slurry to the boiling syrup to form the foam
  • Foaming helps the sponge balls to retain it’s shape
  • When you see the foaming add the sponge balls
  • The flame will be high
  • Boil them for 8 minutes
  • And them remove the cover and again add 1/2 cup hot water
  • So that the syrup doesn’t get sticky and thick
  • Again boil for 8 minutes and add remaining 1/2 cup hot water
  • Do not stir in between
  • And its done
  • Rest it for 2-4 hours before consuming
