RASMALAI

truly delectable dessert from Bengal. From the family of rasgolls.Rasgollas we soak in sugar syrup, but this delicious spongy white milk cakes which we soak in sweetened and thickened flavored milk we served as a chilled dessert. This one is my mom s all time favorite dessert so I made this on Mother S Day, I dedicate this delicious recipe to my Amma. And here I go with the recipe.
                                                                          

FOR MALAI (Rasmalai patties):---
Milk --- 4 cups
Curd (yogurt) --- 1 tab sp Fresh Curd not sour curd
Sugar – 1 & 1/2 cup
Water – 4 &1/2 cups
MAKING OF RASMALAI PATTIES:---
1. Boil milk in a heavy bottom pan, bring to a full boil then add curd slowly and stir the milk gently boil 5 min.
2. When curd will start separating from the whey switch off the flame.
3. Now drain the whey water through a muslin cloth or cheese cloth, wrap the paneer in muslin cloth and rinse this under cold water for removing if any sour taste in the curd.

4. Remove from cold water and squeeze well and remove all water.
5. To remove extra water in paneer squeeze the cloth tightly and keep this under a heavy pan for about 1 hour.
6. After 1 hour take small piece of paneer in to your hands and rub it and make a small ball if you are able to make a smooth ball with out any crake ten your paneer is ready to make rasgolla or rasmalai .
7. Now take this paneer and knead in a dry and clean surface to make smooth and soft dough this will take 4- 5min. and knead well.
8. Now divide the dough in to equal parts and roll them in to smooth balls. (First apply some pressure to make balls and then release and form in to a ball this will give the fluffy ness to the rasmalai s)
9. Then lightly press and give a patty shape.

FOR SYRUP:---
1. Now mix sugar and water in a big pan boil in a medium heat and bring to a boil.
2. Then add paneer patties and boil till paneer patties are double in size and they should come up in the sugar water (cover the pan and cook in a medium flame) this will take 10 – 20 min.
3. Then remove from heat and let it cool.
4. Take out the patties from the sugar syrup and squeeze them lightly and keep a side.
