8 Spoon full milk powder
1 spoon full self raising flour
1 spoon oil (for a healthier option choose olive oil)
Granulated sugar (1 cup)
Water (1 cup)
Cardamom (small amount needed to sprinkle over the dessert, halve the cardamom before dressing dessert).
1. Mix all ingredients, starting with the milk powder, self raising flour, oil and finally the egg.
2. Once all ingredients have been mixed, it should form a soft dough. Mould into small round balls.
3. In heavy bottomed pan heat oil for a few minutes warm enough to fry the balls. Please make sure it is on a low heat.
4. Once the oil is warm enough, place the balls in the oil and fry gently stirring the balls around. Please make sure the balls are golden all the way round before taking them out. This may take 10 minutes to fry but as noted make sure the balls are golden all the round.
5. While the balls are frying, prepare the syrup.
6. Place the water in a saucepan and boil with the sugar until the sugar dissolves.
7. Once the sugar dissolves, keep boiling for a few minutes until the liquid becomes syrup like texture. Bring the mixture to a boil.
8. Place the syrup in a dish.
9. Once the balls have turned golden take the balls out and drain the oil completely.
10. Place the balls in the syrup dish and mix gently until the balls are covered in the syrup. Leave the hot sweet dish for a few minutes until the balls are fully immersed in the syrup. Please note that any disturbances will break the balls apart.
11. Lastly, the halved cardamoms can be sprinkled over the rasgulla to add a wonderful aroma.
12. Once cooled, the rasgulla can be eaten.
