DD.. Delhi!

Mystery, magic, mayhem. Welcome to Delhi, City of Djinns. Delhi, lying in the soul of the nation India. It's a educational hub, entertainment hub and a historical hub. Delhi is the place for everyone.  Like an eastern Rome, India’s capital is littered with the relics of lost empires. A succession of armies stormed across the Indo-Gangetic plain and imprinted their identity onto the vanquished city, before vanishing into rubble and ruin like the conquerors who preceded them. Now, it’s Modern Delhi which is a chaotic tapestry of medieval fortifications, Mughal mausoleums, dusty bazaars, colonial-era town planning, and mega malls. Delhi is simply the ever moving city in all aspects.

Delhi drives you crazy if you know what’s in the store for you. As mentioned above, Delhi simple has everything can be think of. Top educational schools, colleges and institutes along with exceptional food joints and fun places to hang out. Delhi has mixture of talented youth, the growing buds of the nation and the leaders of the nation. When it comes to Delhi, you know you have to get used to the traffic here as everyone loves to drive here. The roads are broad and wide here and with proper road signs everywhere. Plus people drive here with discipline be it, two wheelers or four wheelers. It's a fun living city driving the nation foward.

Delhi is home to some of the greatest marvels in terms of architecture and design around the world. With a host of monuments, steeped in rich history and design par excellence, Delhi has loads to boast about. Delhi is a city with an impressive and remarkable history. Standing as a witness to this interesting bygone era are the various monuments of Delhi. From the Old Fort to the Tughlaqabad area to the various tombs in the city, each one represents a separate period in the history of Delhi. However, one thing that is common in all the monuments of Delhi is their architectural excellence. Be it the Red Fort built by Shah Jahan or the Parliament House designed by Edwin Lutyens, each and every monument has an architectural beauty that leaves you mesmerized. All said and done, the magnificence of Delhi monuments cannot be fully described and you will have to visit them to really appreciate them.

Floating rasmalai

10 piece rossogolla
Half cup crushed strawberries
1 spoon sugarfree natura
Quarter cup mashed strawberries

Combine the sliced strawberries and powdered sugar in a bowl, mix well and keep aside.
Slice each rasmalai horrizontly into 2
Sandwich it with the upper half of the rasmalai.
Add the mashed strawberries to the rasmalai milk arrange sandwiched rasmalais in a serving dish and pour the strawberry milk evenly over it.
We can freeze it and serve or we can put into freezer and can serve it with sugar-free icecream in ice cream bowls also.

Slice the rasmalais carefully as they are delicate and can break easily.

Preparation of rossogolla---
Milk - 1 liter (5 cup, full cream)
Sugar free natura - 100 gram (1.5 cup)
Lemon - 2 (squeeze out the juice)

Wash any big utensil and pour milk for boiling. Once milk starts boiling, turn off the gas and make milk cool down (keep it 80% hot). Add water in lemon juice.
Mix little lemon juice at a time in milk and mix well. Add lemon juice until milk starts to coagulant.  Once milk starts to coagulate stop adding lemon juice in milk. Strain the coagulated milk in any muslin cloth. Spread cloth over sieve and place a utensil beneath the sieve. Pour coagulated milk on top of the cloth. All water will drain out in utensil kept beneath the sieve and chena will be left on the top. Pour 1-2 cup cold water on chena so that it becomes cool and the savory flavor of lemon juice gets washed away. Cover chena from all sides and squeeze rest of water. Soft chena is ready.
Take out chena in any plate and with help of your hands mash and knead to make it soft and tender. Divide the chena in 10-12 parts. Take one part and bind it with hands giving it a shape of ladoo. Place this ball in any plate. Like wise prepare all balls.
Cook rasgullas in pressure cooker as its very less time consuming. For making rasgullas we need high temperature, this is why we use pressure cooker.
Add sugarfree and 4 cup water in pressure cooker and let it boil. When it starts boiling place the entire prepared balls in cooker one by one. Cover it with lid and let it simmer once. After it simmers once reduce the flame and cook for 7-8 minutes more.
Take cold water in any utensil and place pressure cooker in it. Cool the cooker or place it below water tap so that it becomes cool quickly. Open with alertness and take out rasgullas along with sugar syrup in a bowl and make them cool down. After 5-6 hours rasgullas become more sweet and tasty. Serve chilled sponge rasgullas.
To make chena make sure you cool down the milk a bit. Add 1 cup water in milk for making it cool quickly. This makes chena softer and rasgullas comes out spongier.
