It is usually made with Paneer ( fresh cheese ), shaped into flattened balls and cooked in a thickened milk. Here's an easy and quick Rasmalai recipe, made with powdered milk. Soft and light balls with milk syrup and flavored with cardamom and pistachios.

  16. I'll die for Rasmalai, Ambreen. And yours look perfect. I've never come across a recipe that uses egg. Is that a make-over recipe?

    We used to get something similar to this at a Church in Trivandrum at the end of their feast Mass. Looks good... And easy to make too.. wow!

  38. I made this today with instant milk powder as I didn't have full cream milk powder, all the balls broke down as soon as heated in the milk.
    Can you tell me please the reason?
    Is it because of the milk powder?

    1. Kimi, sorry to hear that! Maybe you added more baking powder than required. It should be a level teaspoon. Also, don't stir the balls after adding to the milk. When they start to swell up, reduce the heat and cook on low heat. Hope this helps!

    1. I'm sorry to hear that, Anie! Try reducing the amount of baking powder. When the balls start to swell up ( after adding to the milk ), reduce the heat and let them cook on low heat. Hope this works!
