    1. Boil the milk in a heavy bottom pan. Once it boils, add Lemon juice & Vinegar. Stir continuously till it curdles. Once the milk solids separate, drain it.

    2. After you drain it, rinse it under cold water to remove any traces of Vinegar or Lemon juice. Keep it aside to cool down for 10 min.

    3. Once the water has drained out completely, in a big plate take the chenna, add 2 Tsp of Cornflour and knead for exact 10 mins. Make sure you knead exactly for 10 min. this step is very crucial.

    4. After kneading for 10 mins, roll them into small balls. this should make 10-16 balls.

    5. While you are rolling out the balls, make the sugar syrup using, sugar & water. let it boil. Once the sugar syrup boils, add the chenna balls. cook for 20-25 mins or until the balls double in size.
    TIP : After 25 mins, take one ball and drop it into cold fresh water, if it sinks that means its cooked. test all the balls and put them back in the Syrup. turn off the flame.
    6. Meanwhile prepare the Ras/Masala Doodh/ Flavoured Milk. in a Heavy bottom pan, heat milk till it boils completely. Add Kesar, Cardamom and Almonds and Pistachios. Give it a good 20 mins boil or until the milk thickens.

    8. Refrigerate overnight or keep aside for 6 hrs.
