Nolen / Notun Gurer Roshogolla... Date Jaggery Rasgulla...

This Rasgullas are made with Notun / Nolen Gur / Date Jaggery. Date jaggery is made in winter season and is sold in the market either in liquid form called Jhola Gur or solid blocks called Patali / Nolen Gur or Notun Gur. 
The recipe of the Rasgulla is the same, only date jaggery is added to the syrup. Rasgulla making is a easy task, only few tips to be remembered. Cow milk is best to make the rasgulla. While making the cheena / paneer, after the sour agent is added don't over boil the milk after it curdles other wise the cheena will become hard. Squeeze out the whey completely from the cheena, but at the same time cheena should be moist enough to bind into a smooth soft dough. Knead the cheena very well by rubbing the cheena with the help of your palm on a flat surface. Knead the cheena for 10 minutes. If you feel that the cheena has become hard and it is not binding, then add few drops of milk or water while kneading. I have added suji and sugar. You can also replace suji with flour. 
I am sure you will enjoy making them too. 

Ingredients
Cheena / Paneer made out of 1 1/2 litres Cow Milk
1 tsp Suji / Fine Semolina 
1 tsp Sugar 

For the Syrup
2 cups Sugar
1 cup Nolen Gur / Date Jaggery 
7 cups of Water 

Method
Take a deep bottom pot. Add the sugar, date jaggery and water. Let the jaggery and sugar melt. Let it simmer. Meanwhile on a flat surface, start kneading the cheena, suji and sugar for 10 minutes rubbing the cheena with the heel of the palm until smooth and it binds into a dough. Make small lime size portions and roll them into balls. Drop the balls into the syrup. Cover and cook for 15 minutes on medium heat. Open the lid and let it cook for 5 minutes on low heat. Switch off the flame, wait till it cools down before serving.
