did not form any scum but if yours has to be cleared pour some milk when boiling. Foam will form on the top and you can remove it. I have tried with full fat milk which was buffalo milk I think and the texture did not turn out great. The other was the packeted cows milk which was the option if we don’t get fresh ones. Finally I decided that if we get fresh cows milk that will be the best and will give you great results each time. Rasagullas can be had warm but I love to have the next day chilled by then total taste will be enhanced. These bengali sponge rasagulla recipe is a must try dessert for this diwali for sure so do try it.

You can use pressure cooker for this but no need to use the whistle just close the lid and keep it in low flame. I have used moderate sugar but you can increase but I feel it will be overpowering. The ratio of sugar and water differs but for me this ratio works best. Use only cows milk no buffalo milk . If we knead the panner too much the oil from it will be out and the outcome will not be soft and spongy. You can make small or big balls as per your wish. For me the sugar used was clear did not form any scum but if yours has to be cleared pour some milk when boiling. Foam will form on the top and you can remove it.
