Quick Rasmalai Recipe with Powder Milk

Ras malai or rossomalai is a dessert originating from the eastern regions of the Indian subcontinent, possibly Bengal. The name ras malai is the Hindi cognate of Bengali: rosh, meaning "juice", and malai, meaning "cream". It's also very popular in Pakistan and usually made for special occasions! 

Today I'm sharing a quicker method for making Rasmalai. Using milk powder instead of cottage cheese is a very common method that us millennials use all the time.

Thanks to Butter over Bae for the following tips!

  1. Use cold ingredients. Keep the milk powder in the freezer for 5 mins before making the balls and use cold egg as well
  2. Use a plate or a wide bowl to mix the dough, this will make it easier for you to knead the dough with your palms.
  3. Use good quality milk powder and good quality baking powder (more often than not, expired baking powder is the culprit of bad results)
  4. If the dough seems very sticky, add 1 tsp of milk powder and knead again.
  5. If the dough seems hard and is cracking on making balls, add a little ghee and knead again.
  6. Make a small depression in the centre of the discs, this gives a very even disc shape once it is boiled in milk.
  7. Your rasmalai balls should be smooth and crack free when you dip it in the milk.
