Introduction: Rasmalai

Rasmalai is a very delicious Pakistani dessert. It is also very popular in India and Bangladesh. This dessert is served cold so it could be a perfect accompaniment on a hot spring/ summer afternoon.

In the original recipe, cheese balls are cooked in milk but in my recipe I have used milk powder to make the balls.


For The Milk Base

1 1/2 liter whole milk

4-5 cardamom pods split open

sugar to taste

kewra essence few drops

For The Balls

1 cup powdered milk

1 egg

1 tbsp oil

1 tsp BP

1 tbsp plain flour

Step 1: Prepare the Milk Base

Step 3: Make the Balls

Press your index finger into the middle of each ball to mark the center.

Step 4: Cooking the Rasmalai

Place each ball into the milk and cook on very low heat with the lid covered.

Cook on very low heat till balls are doubled in size. Don't use the spoon but move the pan to and forth slowly with the lid on so that all the balls are cooked to the center.

Step 5: Garnish

The ras malai is ready when the balls are cooked up to the center, Garnish with blanched almonds or pistachios. Serve cold.
