After making Rasgulla it is necessary to rest it for 4 hours atleast. This is because it lets the sugar syrup to enter into the rasgulla and makes it soft.
I have used here lemon juice. Instead of lemon juice vinegar can also be used to curdle the milk.
The Idea behind using muslin cloth is it can drain out water from the curdled milk very easily.
