I am sharing this perfect Monday recipe of Rasmalai. The good thing is that you can have them without any celebration. Well, I don’t think that you want a special event for eating these light, soft and spongy paneer balls. Nevertheless, if you still need an excuse to enjoy these then you will have to pretend that there’s a party or something. Does that make you feel better? 🙂

What is Rasmalai? ‘Ras’ (रस) means juice and ‘malai’ means fresh cream. In this dish, ‘Malai’ ( मलाई ) is flattened cottage cheese balls (chenna/paneer balls), which are cooked in sugar syrup first and then later dunked and soaked in rich, sweet, saffron flavored thick and creamy milk syrup known as ‘ras’. It’s then garnished with chopped nuts.

Rasmalai is a Bengali delicacy which hails from the Indian State of Bengal. But this is popular in all over India — people are just crazy for this Indian sweet. You can get it everywhere in India.

Today I am sharing the very original and authentic way of making Rasmalai. This rasmalai method is very straightforward. I made everything from scratch, which includes making chenna/paneer, shaping them to discs, boiling them in sugar syrup, and making milk rabari. And finally at the end, dunking and soaking soft and spongy paneer discs into the rabri to get that intense rich, milky, creamy sweet flavor inside out.

You can also make this instant version of Rasmalai by using store-bought ready-made rasgullas from any Asian grocery store.
I always make rasmalai when I make spongy rasgullas at home. That is the main reason that whenever rasgullas I make sure to cook some extra, so that I can also make some instant rasmalai with them. In this recipe, you’ll just have to make rabri, and dunk rasgullas into rabri the same way you do with the original Rasmalai recipe.

For me, it is one of the tastiest Indian desserts. I just adore them. I can even skip my meals for these tiny jewels. There is something so cool about this dessert — as soon as one of these balls are in your mouth, and all your life’s current problems would melt away temporarily. Like me, little A is also a HUGE fan of this sweet dish because it is sweet and it contains her favorite paneer. Yes, she loves eating raw paneer.

For Making Malai Balls:

2. Divide the dough into 12-14 pieces and roll each piece between your palms to make smooth and round lemon sized balls and flatten them to shape into discs.
For sugar syrup:
1. Add 1 cup sugar, 5 cups water, and cardamom pods to a large pot and stir with a spatula.(The ratio of sugar water should be 1:5.)
2. Let the water boil for few minutes and add the cheese balls into it and cover it.
3. Cook covered for 5 minutes on high heat.
4. Turn the heat to low and cook for 10 minutes.
5. Let it cool completely.
For Making Rabri:
1. Heat milk a pan and let it come to a boil.
2. Add 1 tbsp hot milk to the saffron strands and stir well.
3. Add this saffron mixture to the milk and boil it till it reduced to half. Keep stirring occasionally.
4. Add sugar and mix well.
5. Now add cardamom, rose water chopped nuts and boil for 5 more mins.
6. Let it cool.
