    Hi, did u mentioned the water and sugar qty rightly ? As the sugar is more than water and u r asking to make a thin consistency which is not possible I guess……?

    Can u clear this – is the qty of water and sugar mentioned is the correct qty?

    And also when ever I make rasgollas they don’t double in size, they will be soft and good but not real puffy and double in size, what might be the reason…

    I knead the paneer almost for 10-15mins until my hand get a touch of fat, I put the paneer balls in boiling sugar syrup only, and I cook it for one whistle….
    Thanks in advance
