Hi Chef.. I love all your recipes and i'm a big fan of you. You have inspired me a lot in cooking. This rasamalai is awesome and mouth watery. I have just one doubt. when i added lemon juice to milk the paneer smelled with lime essence. what shud i do to avoid it?

Hi, I tried this recipe for Rasgolla and the recipe looked like it turned out well as the size of Rasgolla was doubled for which I was very happy but the rasgolla are like pieces of rubber to eat. where do you think I would have gone wrong? Please revert.
