Rasgolla with Paneer?

Have you all ever tried making Rasgolla with store-bought-Paneer? I had never been successful in making proper paneer and am wondering if I can just store bought paneer to make rasgolla.

If you have ever tried it or have any idea about this, please do let me know!

It will be difficult to do since you need the chhena, and not paneer. You could crumble store bought paneer (uncooked of course), work in a little maida and then knead well.

However, remember, you dont have to make "paneer" at home to make rasgulla. You just need to curdle the milk, drain the whey, and then start kneading the chhena. If you are very concerned about the chhena holding together, make sure that it is drained very well. Hang it in a cloth for at least 15-20 minutes, but do not put any weight on it (else it will set into paneer). If you are still concerned you can add a teeny bit of maida to bind it together.

No - google it. It is an awesome sweet - but more Punjabi, than Bengali I think.

Chhena Murgi is a sweet more prevalent in North India like Smelly said. It's good. try it. Do you have an Indian sweets chain in Canada like Rajbhog? I am sure they will have it...

Re: Rasgolla with Paneer?

Formula reads simple ... will give it a try ... one of these days.

I had an opportunity to cook for two or three weeks in spare time after work. It was fun for a day or two. I got fed up. I give up. I tried with chicken as well as frozen fish filets. Food tasted delicious. Not a doubt. Family never appreciated my cooking, but recently few friends did get to enjoy, except for once or twice.

Here is the problem ... even after making variations ... chicken/fish ... fried or with gravy ... all tasted the same. Taste is in spices and ingredients ... isn't it? Onions, tomatoes, ginger garlic paste are the basic main ingredients to make gravy. I added yogurt but still tasted same as the one I made without. I added some canned peaches, all it did is make gravy a bit sweet but still same taste. Restaurants have dishes each with different aroma and taste.

Professional or amateur, chef or a housewife, hobby or not ... cooking is a serious business. One has to learn the skills. I don't have it in me. One more ... even if family ( never) and friends enjoyed my efforts and were full of praises ... I couldn't. First couple of times was fun ... it became boring.

I am done with kitchen.
