Rasamalai Recipe | Diwali Special Recipes

Rasamalai is one of the dessert, which I often have in my office cafeteria.  Rasagullas soaked in the saffron flavored milk tastes divine. When I tried Rasagulla, I reserved some for trying rasamalai. The rasmalai was very soft and creamy we all enjoyed it a lot. This is a perfect dessert for parties and get togethers. You can prepare it a day before and keep it in the refrigerator.
Milk - 1 Litre
Rasagullas - 8(Homemade Rasagullas check here)
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Milkmaid - 3 tbsp(optional)
Cardamom powder -1/4 tsp
Saffron - 7 to 8 strands
Nuts( Pistachio, Almonds)- 4 to 5 tbsp(Chopped)
1. Soak saffron in 1/2 cup of hot milk and keep it aside. Boil milk until it reduces to half. Stir it in medium flame to prevent milk from getting burnt. If using milkmaid, add it. Also add the saffron soaked milk and stir well.
2. Take the rasgullas from the sugar syrup and squeeze out the excess sugar syrup gently.Then drop it into the creamy milk and allow it to boil for another 2 to 3 mins. Switch off the flame. Toss the almonds and pistachios in ghee. Add it to the creamy rasamalai.
Once it cools, refrigerate it and serve chilled garnished with almonds and pistachios.
Points to remember:
  • You can soak the almonds and pistachios in hot water for 15 mins and peel the skin. Then chop it.
  • Using milkmaid is optional. But it gives lovely flavour and makes rasamalai richer. If you are skipping milkmaid, increase the sugar quantity accordingly.
Warm Regards,
