Quick & Easy Rasmalai With Readymade Rasgullas


During last week, I was in real hurry to rustle up something sweet for a get together few days back and it was then Soma mentioned about this quick solution 'Rasmalai' with ready made Rasgullas. And it saved me BIG time. One of my friend said "Aro rasmalai beche thakle amake pack kore dao" (pack the leftover Rasmalai for me) :-)And I knew I have hit the Jackpot !!!

 Once in a while don't shy away to indulge in the creamy, lip smacking Indian dessert. Who says that it takes much effort to relish these? Well hear me out when I say it's 'quick' and 'easy' way to enjoy a very popular Indian milk based dessert recipe. Ras malai is nothing but dumplings made of Cottage Cheese (many use Riccotta Cheese as well) soaked in aromatic, thickened milk with a hint of cardamom flavour in it.

Ingredients:
1/2 ltr Full cream Milk
1/2 ltr Heavy cream
1/2 cup Sugar + 1/4 cup Rasgulla syrup
A can of store bought rasgullas / I used small ones 300 gms
1/2 tsp Cardamom powder
2 tbsp Pistachio, chopped
2 drops of Kewra essence
Saffron few strands

Method:
Squeeze out all the syrup out of (store bought) the rasgullas and keep aside as we are going to use it later for sweetness along with sugar.
Boil the milk in a heavy bottomed pan and keep stirring it to avoid thin film to form at the bottom of the pan. Reduce the heat after first boil and keep stirring till milk is reduced to half. Add heavy cream , sugar, the extra syrup and stir intermittently so it doesn't burn at the bottom. Add cardamom powder and pinch of saffron strands. Cook for 10 minutes and remove from heat. Once the milk is warm add the rasgullas, kewra essence and sprinkle some pistachios. Stir well and serve chilled rasmalai. 
This is how I served that day...


User Comments & Tips:

  • Don't put rasgullas into boiling milk  or else they will fell apart into climps if using big ones. Let the boiled milk cool down a bit then add the rasgullas. 
  • You can simply skip adding Kewra essence if not a big fan of it.

  35. Rashogolla, like the most sweets in India will always and forever be a Bengali thing. Remember that Bengali households still are known for their amazing food culture and this fact is known world-wide :)

    tanSEN was bengali my dear friend, so were a lot of other people! want to see the entire list as it stands today? so was subash chandra bose and sri aurobindo :)

    and i can name a million others and i am proud to say our greateness can be exerted beyond our national borders.
    we are the fifth largest speakers!

    here are two lists to shut your mouth

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bengali_people

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Bengalis

    these guys are not just making India proud but half the world knows about these guys dude :)
    c'mon

    we bengalis have won pretty much every award in the world stage
    you name it we have it and we are damn proud of what we have :)
    its the only country in the world which took rebellion because it couldn't speak its mother tongue and it won! and won so hard that the UN had to adopt that day as the international language day, which celebrates languages from all over the world.

    did you know that the FAMOUS SEARS TOWER is architectured by another bengali?
