1. Now need to squeeze the cheese to extract the water. Make sure the cheese has no excess water otherwise rosogolla will break into pieces.
2. The cheese needs to be kneaded 2 minutes. Then add sugar, semolina, plain flour, self raising flour and cardamom powder. Knead the cheese until your palm feels a little greasy. You can use food processor for kneading then it will be a lot easier.

4. Heat the pan with 7 cups water and add the sugar on medium high. Bring it to boil and add the curd balls to the syrup. Cover the pan with the lid.
