Easy Rasmalai

I learnt this recipe from my sister-in-law,she made this for us when we visited her house for the first time... When I came newly to Singapore,I don't even know the ABCs of cooking. And when we stayed at her place for few days,I got impressed by her style of cooking and the ease with which she does,she never complicates anything and always keeps her cool how much ever work load she has! I have learnt so many easy yet yummy recipes from her. My apple custard post is the one I learnt from her. So this is also such recipe,you can make it to impress your guests! Still I have not tried making rasgullas at home,so I used the instant,ready made rasgullas and made this rasmalai. Haldiram’s works the best,though I used another one this time…
Rasmalai This is very special post for me,3 rd blog Anniversary! Party



Easy Rasmalai recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Sweets
Prep Time: 5 mins    |  Cook time: 25 mins    Serves: 4

Ingredients

Rasgullas - 8

Milk - 2 & 1/2 cup

Evaporated filled milk - 1/4 cup

Sugar - 1/4 cup

Saffron - A pinch

Cashew nuts - 8

Cardamom, powdered - 1

Pistachios - 8

Ghee - 1 tsp


Method

  1. First start heating milk in a heavy bottomed vessel, grease the bottom of the pan with few drops of ghee.(this is to prevent burning  of milk at the bottom). Take 2 tablespoons of warm milk and keep saffron soaked till needed.
  2. soak in lukewarm saffron
  3. Boil milk for 20-30 minutes in very low flame. Keep stirring now and then.
  4. Boil milk
  5. When the volume reduces almost half,add the saffron soaked in the milk,evaporated filled milk and boil for 2 more minutes.
  6. Add saffron
  7. Chop the nuts and fry it in ghee till golden brown and add it to the milk too,add the sugar and simmer for few minutes. (Is this is called rabri/rabdi)?.
  8. Rabri
  9. Squeeze the sugar syrup from the rasgullas,take care you don't squeeze the rasgullas hardly(this will make the rasgulla break),just squeeze it gently.
  10. Squeezed rasgullas
  11. Add it to the milk when it is still hot. Let it get soaked. After cooled down,refrigerate and serve cold.
  12. Add rasgullas
Notes:
  • Do not add more than the mentioned evaporated milk as it will turn the rabri look ugly in colour.
  • Also too much of saffron will spoil the taste,make sure you add just a few strands.
  • Keep refrigerated and tastes best when served cold….
  • If the rasmalai turns too thick, later you can add little milk to dilute it.
    Thick boiled milk with the caramelized smell of the evaporated milk + the saffron when combined, is the meaning of divine smell! Delicious!! The rasgullas dunked becomes soft and combines well with the rabri!

      1. Its thick reduced milk, without any sweet. It will be there found near where they keep condensed milk in the shops.

    53. Hi raks,
      I tried your rasagullas and rasamalai receipe. It came out really well. Thank you so much for your receipe. My rasagullas colour got changed when I opened the cooker. It's like half white and half brown . What are the things I have to do to avoid the colour change

      1. If you do not have evaporated milk, condensed milk can also be added, but add sugar very very less.

    63. Hi, I would like to try making this recipe although I am little confuse after reading the comments. Someone mentioned about pressure cooker although there is nothing I read about pressure cooker in the recipe. Am I missing anything?

      ReplyDelete
      Replies
      1. No that comment is about preparing ragullas. This recipe uses readymade rasgullas. So dont get confused :)

    64. Luks cool �� I used to boil milk and add MTR bad am drink mix to it for making rabri. I think even the readymade bad am drink can from MTR will work good.
