Rasmalai - Indian Dessert

Rasmalai is a Indian sweet dish. Made it for Diwali and never got time to post it. Homemade is always fresh and it came out tasty too. Intially i was thinking that this is difficult dessert to make at home. I tried after much reluctance and came out really nice. Also it is quite easy to make and doesn’t take more than 30mins. I was so excited to try this in my kitchen.

Prep Time : 20 - 30 Mins
Makes - 8 -10 
Serve - 3-4

Ingredients for Malai
  • Milk - 500 Ml (1/2 ltr) (I used Fat free milk)

  • Take a large non stick pan add milk bring to boil in a medium flame. Then add lemon juice mix well milk starts curdle switch off the stove. Leave for few mins
  • Take a large colander or cheese cloth or muslin cloth (i used cheese cloth available here in "Bed Bath & Beyond" store) strain the curdle milk then turn on the tap water gently rinse becoz lemon taste removes.

This is one sweet that I can confidently make now. Initially even I was skeptical to make it. But now that we have tasted the real deal I hate going to shop for Rasmalai. The homemade tastes so tasty and soft. Lovely pics.
