Rasmalai

Rasmalai  is a sweet dessert originating in Eastern India and popular throughout the Indian subcontinent. Is served after a meal. It is popular throughout South Asia. The name Ras Malai comes from two parts in Hindi: Ras, which means Juice/Juicy, and Malai, which means cream.

 Ras Malai consists of sugary white, cream or yellow colored balls (or flattened balls) of paneer soaked in malai (clotted cream) flavored with cardamom.

  • Sugar - 1 cup

Method:


For Soft cheesy paneer :



  • Heat the milk in a vessel and allow it to boil.
  • Once its done.Pour the lemon juice into the milk and stir well in simmer.
  • Slowly the milk is separated into water and cheese.
  • Switch off and drain it in a Muslin cloth , add cold water to it and hang it for an hour.
  • after an hour, pat the cloth gently to remove the exess water and it rolls into a small dough.
  • Take small balls of it in the hand and gently roll it. Slightly flatten it and keep aside.

For The malais to get boiled :



  • In another vessel or may be cooker, add 5 cups of water and one cup of sugar.
  • Allow it to dissolve. Once done, add the flattened paneer to it. 
  • Cook it for one whistle.
  • Remove it from the sugar water and keep it aside.

For Ras :



  • Heat the milk in another vessel, allow it to boil and reduce half the quantity.
  • Now add the condensed milk, chopped nuts.
