I am celebrating the happy moment with you all with the very sweet and heavenly taste of RASMALAI… 


Its Indian sweets are generally calorie rich, lip-smacking delicious and hard to resist. Actually I prepare rasmalai during this diwali time and save it in my system for future post… but unfortunately my system got major error and I lost many of the recipes… so now its time to make again for my blog baby birthday… Rasmalai is my most favourite dessert even I say am die-hard fan to rasmalai… So this is the right dessert to celebrate the moment right???

Little About Ras Malai
Ras malai is a sweet dessert originating in India. The name Ras Malai comes from two parts in Hindi Ras – Juice/Juicy (Even our rasam too the same meaning) Malai – Cream. It’s a Bengali dessert consisting of soft paneer balls immersed in chilled creamy milk.

Its taste is so delicious, and it’s very easy to make if you love the dessert or you love offer your families and friends. Its bit time consumes process but am extremely sure about the final result will be distinction to you…  The spongy and mildly sweet paneer balls immersed in the rich creamy milk with the flavours of saffron, nuts…. Ohhhhhhhh!!!! It’s Divine!!!


There are two processes to making heaven taste of Ras malai. First step making rasgulla (Cottage cheese dumplings immersed in sweet syrup) and second one have to make rabdi (thick and concentrated full fat milk with sugar and flavoured with cardamom or rose essence).

Don’t afraid or think about its difficult, it’s very easy to make rasgullas n rasmalai even if you are beginners…

Making Rasgulla
  • First prepare rasgulla – here the step wise pictures for making rasgulla or you can use store bought rasgullas. - See the link here to make Ras Gulla 

Making Rabdi
  • Boil the milk in a wide heavy bottom pan, stir often to avoid burn of the milk at the bottom.
  • Take 2 Tsp of milk from this and soak saffron strands for 5 minutes and then pour this mixture into the boiling milk.
  • Now add sugar and condensed milk stir it well and it should be come to half of the original quantity.



Ras gulla + Rabdi = Rasmalai Make
  • Now gently squeeze out the excess sugar syrup from the rasgullas by pressing with spoon as I shown in the picture and keep it aside.
  • Then add rasgulla balls one by one in the boiling milk.
  • Stir it once gently and add 1 Tbsp of almonds and pistachios each.
  • Finally take 1 Tbsp of corn flour mixed with 3 Tbsp of water and pour the solution to the boiling mixture and stir it once it becomes thicken in 2 minutes.
  • Switch off the flame and cool it completely.



  • Keep it in refrigerator and serve chilled rasmalai garnished with chopped almonds and pistachios… 












NOTE
  • You can use store bought ras gullas to make instant and time reducing process.
  • You can store the ras gullas in refrigeration and make ras malai in next day too.
  • Using cardamom will enhance the flavor
