Take a steel pot and add 1 cup of sugar and 5 cups of water to it. Next boil it for at least ten minutes. Once it is done, let it cool for some time.

In a deep wok, pour one litre full fat milk and boil it to prepare the chena for rasgulla. After properly boiling the milk, let it cool before you add lemon juice to it for making chena. Avoid mixing lemon juice to the milk in between the boiling process.

After some time of cooling, using half a lemon, pour the lemon juice to the milk and mix it gently with the milk, do it as delicately as you can. Turn ON the gas on low flames and keep stirring.

After a while you will notice chena and water being separated in the wok.

Next, kneed the chena to make it a proper dough. It will take around ten minutes to do this step. Once the dough is ready, add 1 teaspoon corn flour to it and kneed it again. 

After that, using your hands, prepare small balls from the dough and put them one by one in the chashni (syrup) that we prepared with boiling water and sugar.

Boil the rasgullas with the chashni (syrup) for few more minutes. Cover it with a led and let it cook nicely.
