Ras Malaai....from milk powder



Remember,I made Gulab Jamun sometime back? And I said Ras Malai is just similar to that,well here I am with the recipe of Ras Malai,a MUST TRY for all those with a sweet tooth!

This is my Husband's favourite,I learnt this recently from my MIL, but whenever we go out to Karachi Darbar,my husband always finishes his meal with Ras Malai.
Now this tastes so good that,it was over within a single day,eceybody helped themselves with double servings,before learning this method I followed the shortcut method from IFR,but this one is not that difficult at all!

Some fellow bloggers have used ricotta cheese,havent tried that though,but if anybody does do let me know how does turn out, here are some links
this is by AF of My recipe
Now this one is very good with step by step pictures,it looks good!

Ingredients:
1)milk powder(Nido)-1 cup
2)Ghee 1 Tbsp
3)egg white-of 2 eggs
4)Maida-1 Tbsp
5)Milk 1 Litre
6)sugar 1/2 cup(adjust accd to ur taste)
7)condensed milk-1/2 cup
8)pistachios 1 handful(half chopped and half slivered)
9)Baking powder-1/2 tsp heapful



Method:

--In a large bowl put milk powder,baking powder,egg white,maida and mix until a sticky cohesive mass is formed,like dough,but sticky,now grease your hands with oil or butter and bring togeather the milk dough and knead with your knuckles for 2-3 minutes.keep aside(this dough gets hard,so work fast with it)covered.
--In a saucepan put milk,sugar chopped pistachios and condensed milk and bring to boil on high temparature,then lower the flame
--Meanwhile from the milk dough take small portion and make ball and then press it so that it forms the shape of a disc,because,to absorb the milk evenly,it needs large surface area,coz if it is round ,the inside part might not absorb the flavoured milk and will be dry! The disc should be the size of a coin,because when it is mistened it swells up,and if u make big discs then the ones made will be Humongous,so be careful!
--Repeat this untill you use up the entire dough,now immerse these discs in the milk on low flame one by one,so that they dont overlap,shut the lid of the saucepan for 1-2 minutes ,and then turn off the flame.
--Let it cool down,dont handle these at this point since there are chances that these discs might break,so let it cool.
after sometime,transfer them in the serving dish,very gently one by one and then pour the milk of the saucepan over the discs and garnish with slivered pistochios and chill in the fridge, Its is best served chilled!



Enjoy!!!

hi syeda, i tried ur recipe but the cheera, the sweetness is not going inside the rasmallai i made could u plz tell me why is that so, when i take it in my mouth the taste of egg is very obvious.. plz guide me if u can figure what the prob. is

syeda said...

@anonymous thanx for visiting my blog and trying this recipe...firstly regarding the egg's taste, did you just use the egg whites or also the egg yolk, coz the recipe calls for egg white off 2 eggs, and I think that it wont taste that bad...I think maybe you used the yolk as well?

and the sweetness not going inside, hmmm you know get the rasmalais ready and as soon as the milk+condensed milk+ sugar mixture starts boiling drop the rasmalais in the pan, lower the heat to sim(barely there type otherwise the milk will boil over) for 5 mins and then leave it covered for some time...hopefully the rasmalai will absorb the sweetness from the milk this time...
hope this helped you...
thanx..have a nice day..
