Rasmalai is a very popular Indian milk based dessert recipe.

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

  • 250 g panir (curdled milk)
  • 2 and 1/2 Tablespoons refined flour (maida)
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 10 cups milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • 4 almonds
  • 4 pistachios

Directions[edit | edit source]

  • Crumble chenna and knead it.
  • Add two tablespoons of maida and knead again with the palm to make a smooth dough.
  • Divide into sixteen equal portions, roll into balls and press slightly to flatten them.
  • Thinly slice almonds and pistachios. Dissolve two cups sugar in two cups of water, bring to a boil.
  • Slowly lower the chenna balls in the boiling syrup and cook on high heat for ten minutes. Sprinkle a little water and half tablespoon of maida and bring to a boil again.
  • Cook for few minutes. Meanwhile boil milk in a thick-bottomed pan, lower heat and continue to boil till it is reduced to a thick consistency (one-third of its original volume).
  • Add rest of the sugar and green cardamom powder and keep boiling till the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat, cool and refrigerate for an hour.
  • Add sliced almonds, pistachios and orange powder and mix again.
  • Squeeze the chenna balls and put them into the chilled milk. Refrigerate it for another half an hour. Serve chilled.
