  1. Bring the milk to the boil in a heavy-bottomed saucepan until it starts foaming; immediately add the lime juice and stir. It will curdle right away. You should see the milk solids (chenna) separate from the whey. Pour into a colander lined with cheese cloth/muslin; rinse the chenna with cold water to get rid of the lime juice. Allow the water to drain completely.

  2. Gather the cheese cloth/muslin edges like a parcel and press as much water out as possible; what you now have is soft paneer. Turn the paneer onto a rolling mat or other smooth surface. Knead the paneer well to make a smooth paste. Roll into a ball and divide into 20 equal portions.

  3. Bring the water to the boil in a pressure cooker; stir the sugar into the boiling water until dissolved.

  4. Roll each portion of paneer into a smooth ball between your palms, making sure there are no cracks; gently drop the balls into the hot syrup. Secure the lid onto the pressure cooker and bring to pressure. Reduce heat to medium-low and pressure cook for 6 minutes.

  5. Release the pressure from the cooker while running under water; remove the lid. The rasgullas should be floating on the syrup and have expanded 2 or 3 times in size. Pour the rasgullas and syrup into a bowl. Gently stir the cardamom into the mixture. Refrigerate to chill completely before serving cold.
