Ingredients for the Baked Rasgulla 

(1 cup=200 ml, 1 tbsp=15 ml)

10 Nos Rasgullas
1½ cups Milk (whole milk)
¾th cup Unsweetened mawa
½ can or 200 gms Condensed milk (Nestle)
8 – 10 Strands of saffron (dissolved in ½ cup milk)
1 tbsp Saffron milk masala doodh powder (optional) – (Sethi brand is what I used)
2 – 3 tbsp Chopped pistachios for garnish
2 – 3 tbsp Chopped almonds for garnish
Silver varq for garnish

Instructions for the Baked Rasgulla

1. Squeeze the syrup from the rasgullas and arrange in an oven proof dish.
2. Heat the milk in a heavy bottom pan.  Let is start thickening a bit, then add the mawa to it.  Stir continuously to avoid any lumps.
3. Add the condensed milk to it and stir.  Mix the saffron strands in it.  Let the mixture thicken a bit for 5 – 10 minutes on a medium flame.  (It should not be too thin nor too thick).
 4. Pour the milk mixture over the rasgullas.  Add the saffron doodh masala powder over it.  Add ½ of the pistachios over it.
 5. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180℃ for 5-7 minutes until the sides bubble and it looks a bit set.
6. Garnish with remaining pistachios, almonds and silver varq.  You can either serve it warm immediately or cool for 2 hours in the fridge and serve chilled.


1. Squeeze the entire sugar syrup from the rasgullas.

2. Don’t use thin low fat milk.  Also the milk mixture should not be too thin.  It will ruin the taste due to watery content.

3. Don’t make mixture too thick as it thickens after baking and also whilst cooling in the fridge.

4. Taste the milk mixture after adding mawa and condensed milk.  If you like it sweeter, add a little more condensed milk.
