Squeeze out water from the chhena.

Divide it into 10 parts. Prepare 6 cm long rolls out of each part and prepare the jilabi shape out of it.
Add 1 cup water to sugar and boil it to make the sugar syrup. The syrup should not be very thick (it should be 1 taar ki chashini i.e. when you take a drop of the syrup between you thumb and finger and streach it, it should make one small line).
Heat oil in a pan and fry the jilabi over low flame.
