how to make chenna 10Tips :

  • Keep some extra lemon juice ready with you, in case the milk does not curdle. But do not add too much.
  • If you are making rasgulla or kofta, then squeeze out all the water from the chenna, but if you are making Bengali sandesh or laduu, don’t need to squeeze all the water, it should be little soft and firm.
