Master chef Recipe ‘Black Forest Rasgulla Cake’ – Simply Brilliant Cake by Star Plus Masterchef India – Indian recipe

In last week’s episode of master chef contestants faced a challenge to make Black forest rasgulla cake. It was not ordinary Black forest cake but it was full of fruits like orange and sweet lime, and melons. These fruits were introduced to balance the extra sweetness of rasgulla. Basically this cake is a combination of 3 main components:

Rasgulla, Black Forest cake, Blue berry jam

Let see the recipes of these three separately:

Rasgulla as it name suggest ‘Ras’ and ‘gola’. Ras is water syrup and ‘gola’ is a formation of milk. Let see gola part first from Ras gulla.


Milk – 1 liter
Lime juice- 2 spoon
Arrow Root- 1 table Spoon
Sugar – 300 gm


The main ingredient to make rasgulla is chenna. It can be bought from dairy or can be prepared at home. In masterchef participates were provided ready made chenna. But we will tell you how to cook chenna at home.

Prepare Chenna at home.

First you need to boil the milk in some heavy metal base utensil. Once milk start boiling squeeze few drops of lime juice into milk .This way milk will start curdling. When milk curdled completely then you will see water will separate from coagulated part of milk.

Now wrapped this coagulated component in cheesecloth and drain extra water from it.

Chenna is ready to use in Rasgulla.

Now spread chenna in a flat surface pan or thali and mix arrowroot and baking powder well. Now knead this mixture and turn into a dough. This dough is ready to make Rasgulla. Now make small balls out of it.

Sugar Syrup (chashani)

Take 300gm Sugar into a pan and pour 1 liter of water and put this pan on flame. When it starts boiling put already prepared small balls of chenna into sugar syrup. Let it cook for 15-20 minute. Rasgulla will soak syrup and become large in size. Now put off the flame let it cold for a while.

Your Rasgullas are ready!


Remember Smita dugger how her rasgulls were dismantling in Syrup. To avoid such situation keep in mind the expert comment of Chef kunal, ‘Do not put chenna balls into too watery syrup other wise it will not hold in syrup and they will melt in syrup’.

Blue Berry Jam.

Blue Berry ½ kg
Sugar 250 gm


Take a small batch of blue berry.
You need to wash the berries in a colander.
Now remove bits of stems, leaves and mushy berry.
Manually crush the berries or run the blueberries through a blender until you get a smooth consistency.
Now add sugar and mix the blueberries with the pectin and cook to a full boil.
Now set the mixture in a pan or jar and wait till it gets cold.

Blue Berry jam is ready!

Black Forest cake

It is basically a German dessert .In masterchef they make egg less Black forest cake. The Masterchef cake was different from ordinary black forest cake as they replaced traditional cherries with fruits and rasgullas.So lets have a look how they prepare it.


All Purpose Flour – 2 cups
Baking Powder – 1 teaspoon
Baking Soda – 2 teaspoons
Unsweetened Cocoa Powder – 3/4 cup
Rasgulla ( pieces) 8-10
Orange (pieces) ½ cup
Sweet lime (pieces) ½ cup
Sugar – 2 cups
Milk – 1 cup
Butter- 1/2 cup
Chocolate -125gms
Fresh whipped cream -250 gms
Melons 8-10 pieces
Blue berry jam 300 gms


Melt butter in a pan on a very low temperature.

Remove the butter from the flame and let the butter cool.

Sift Maida, cocoa powder, baking powder, cooking soda and salt together. Make sure your mixture should not be lumpy.

Grease a baking tray with little butter. Dust it with Maida and keep it aside.

In another bowl beat butter then slowly add the dry mixture while beating well in one direction. Keep beating until the entire dry mixture is fully incorporated.

Now add the milk slowly and beat for a minute.

Pour the mixture into the greased pan. You do not have to spread the mixture using a spoon, if the mixture is of the right consistency.

Place in the centre of the pre-heated oven and bake for 30 minutes. The temperature and baking time can vary from oven to oven. Hence, test the cake at around 25 minutes to see if it is done. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until a wooden tooth pick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. When it is done, let it cool for a while

Now cut the cake into 3 layers.

Chocolate scrape:

First you need to melt the chocolate in a pan.

Keep stirring constantly once chocolate begin to melt. Do not overheat chocolate as it doesn’t response very well to high temperature.

Remove the chocolate from the heat and pour chocolate on waxed sheet on top of baking sheet. Spread chocolate in a thin layer with the help of spatula.

Now gently remove sheet and allow the chocolate to sit until hardened. You can also put in a refrigerator to cool fast.

Place the cooled sheet on a steady, non-slip surface.

Now Take long knife and cut long chocolate scrape.

* If you do not want to do all this process. Then just take a bar of chocolate and grate it with the help of grater.

Assembling the cake:

Now take first layer of cake and spread whipping cream all over the layer and spread pieces of fruits and rasgullas.

Take another layer and spread the blue berry jam and fruits,

Take another layer and repeat the process of spreading whipping cream and fruits.

Finally garnish it with whipping cream and chocolate scrapes and melons.

Black Forest cake is ready!

I hope you enjoyed the recipe, try your hands on this recipe and let us know how your experience was!

    Thanks for the recipe!!!
    For the decoration part, which is shown in the picture, Melon was used. Melon was cut in two halves and cleaned. Then small balls were scopped out (sth like dishing icecream) and used for decoration.

  2. Alphy Dsilva says:

    the recipe is nice and i wish to make this cake, but only thing is that we dont know what to do with the 2 cups of sugar. As it is not mentioned anywhere in the cake recipe where and when to put the sugar. would be glad if you let us know.

    Also it is not mentioned how to put the wipping cream. Do we have to get it direct from the market and put it as it is in the cake or do we have to wip it with sugar and put it in cake??????????????

  3. Ms.Choksi says:

    It is good to put up a recipe different like this one and in an eggless version but not right to have different ingredients for the same recipe. Request you to put up clear and precise procedure with the size of the tin, clarifications as to where and why Castor sugar is used and where normal sugar is used. Since u hv good amount of followers, this will boost up more ppl following u n ppl wud be encouraged to try it at home.

  33. meet says:

    arrow root kya hota hai
    can anyone help me

  34. aesha says:

    Hey Meet, I got this answer on net itself. Arrowroot is an easily digested starch extracted from the roots of the arrowroot plant, Maranta arundinacea. The starch is used as a thickener in many foods such as puddings and sauces, and is also used in cookies and other baked goods. Arrowroot is extremely bland, making it suitable for neutral diets, especially for people who are feeling nauseous. It is not terribly nutritious, but some people believe that it helps to soothe upset stomachs, which is why many health food stores carry arrowroot cookies.

  35. preeti says:

    can you helpl how rasgulla turn yellow, and how quantity salt to add also that thing………….
