Query:

Have you ever tried Nanak Rasmalai ? If you have very good recipe for it please send it too. Do you press it after you remove it from sugarwater before you place in milk?

By:

Priti K Dave, California, USA  |  Show Response  |  Hide

Response :

Yes, it is supposed to be pressed to squeeze out all the sugar syrup before placing in milk. You may also try the following recipe with ready made rasgullas

Recipe : Rasmalai

Ingredients :

  • Semolina (Rava / Suji) 1 cup

  • Fine Wheat Flour (Maida) 3 tbsp

  • Rasgullas - 20 pieces

  • Milk - 1 liter

  • Chopped pistachios - 2 tbsp

  • Shelled green cardamoms - 3

  • Crushed saffron - 1/4 tsp

Method :

  • Drain the sugar syrup from the rasgullas and set it aside.

  • Meanwhile, pour the evaporated milk in a wide container. Add enough sugar syrup to sweeten it to your liking.

  • Then crush a big pinch of saffron with your fingers and add it to the milk.

  • Put the milk in the microwave on HIGH for 3 minutes.

  • While the milk is heating, squeeze the rasgullas. Lift the rasgullas one by one with a spoon and put them in a lime squeezer. Squeeze them gently to remove all the sugar syrup they have absorbed. Take care not to break them.

  • Dunk the rasgullas in the hot milk, along with the shelled and powdered cardamoms. In a couple of minutes, they will soak up the milk and puff up like cotton balls.

  • Toast the chopped pistachios in the microwave on HIGH for 30 seconds.

  • Top with the nuts, and eat it warm or chilled.
