Make sure that the milk is lukewarm while adding the citric acid mixture. Do not shock hot milk as it will affect the quality of the chenna.
Always use cow’s milk for making chenna as it has a low fat content.
If you use buffalo’s milk, let the milk rest after boiling it and then discard the skin that is formed.
Always use fresh chenna for making rasgullas.
