- Pan with lid
- Knife (for cutting and serving)
- In a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup milk powdered, 1 tsp all purpose flour (if not using eggs), and 1/4 tsp baking powder.1 cup Milk Powder, 1/4 tsp Baking Powder, 1 tsp All-Purpose Flour
- Add 1 tbsp ghee (or butter or oil) to the dry mixture. Mix well using your hands, ensuring the fat is evenly incorporated.1 tbsp Ghee
- Slowly add 1/4 cup milk (or beaten eggs, if using) little by little while kneading the dough. Be careful not to over-knead; the dough should be sticky but manageable.1/4 cup Milk
- Once the dough is prepared, wash your hands and apply a bit of ghee to prevent sticking. Divide the dough into 10-20 portions, depending on your desired size.
- Roll each portion into a smooth ball, ensuring there are no cracks on the surface. Place the balls on a plate.
- In a separate pan, combine 1 cup sugar and 4 cups water. Heat over medium flame until small bubbles appear.1 cup Sugar, 4 cups Water
- Carefully add the prepared balls to the simmering syrup, ensuring they are fully submerged. Cover the pan with a lid.
- Cook the balls in the syrup for 5 minutes over medium flame. Then, flip each ball and continue cooking for an additional 2-3 minutes.
- Remove the lid and cook uncovered for another 2 minutes, flipping the balls once more to cook evenly.
- After a total of 10 minutes, turn off the stove. Allow the balls to cool in the syrup, covered, until completely cooled-down (approximately 3 hours).
- Once cooled, the sponge rasgullas are ready to serve. You can enjoy them immediately or keep them in the syrup for a longer duration (6-7 hours) to enhance the flavor.
- Serve the sponge rasgullas on a plate, and optionally decorate them for an appealing presentation.
- Choose a high-quality powdered milk brand labeled as full-cream for the best results.
- If using eggs instead of milk, omit the all-purpose flour from the ingredients.
- Be cautious while kneading the dough; avoid excessive pressure to prevent the milk from losing its fat content, which helps in achieving the sponge-like texture.
- The syrup should have a slightly sweet and liquid texture. Adjust the sugar-water ratio as per your taste preference.
- Ensure the balls are fully submerged in the syrup during cooking to allow them to soak up the sweetness.
- After cooking, the sponge rasgullas will flatten slightly but maintain their shape and syrupy texture.
- For maximum flavor, let the rasgullas rest in the syrup for a few hours before serving.
