Rosogulla is made from chhena or Indian cottage cheese and cooked in sugar syrup.

Then boil milk on the high heat.I used low fat cow milk.
Now turn off the gas and add vinegar water mixture.Here i used vinegar. Lemon juice or Curd also can be used.
When milk starts to curdle and a greenish whey is visible, the chhena is ready. Let it to cool down for 2 mins.
Then take a bowl and keep a strainer over the bowl. Cover the strainer with a cotton cloth.
Drain the chhena with whey over the cloth.
Wrap the chhena with the cloth, squeeze up very well so that water is completely drain out from the chhena.If there have excess water in the chhena, the rosogulla will break when cooking.

Cover the pan and boil for 30 mins on medium heat.
Rasgullas will be doubled in size.
