Rasmalai

Happy Diwali to You. Diwali is a festival of lights and fireworks. For those who are away from home or staying alone, there is always next time to spend with our families each time is unique though. So this time I wanted to make one of my Mom's speciality yup Rasmalai... Everytime I see a post of Rasmalai I used to call my Mom to tell her that I miss her Malai's, this time she suggested that I make it. So did I try it and ofcourse it came out well.



Ingredients:

For the Malai

Milk - 1/2 gallon
Vinegar - 1/4 cup
Sugar - 1 1/2 cups
Water

For the Ras

Milk - 1/2 gallon or Heavy Cream
Sugar - 1 1/2 cups
Cardamom Pwd - 1 tsp
Saffrons - few strands
Pista - 1/4 cup chopped
Almonds - 1/4 cup chopped

Method:

1. Heat Milk in a saucepan and keep stirring continuously not allowing a thin film to form at the bottom of the pan.
2. When Milk comes to a boil add the Vinegar remove from flames and set aside for the Milk to curdle and form soft Cheese.
3. Now strain the Cheese using a Muslin cloth and knead the cheese (still in the muslin cloth) for it to loose the water over another cloth. Take care not to strain too much, else the Malai balls will break down.
4. Make small marble sized balls and press them on the top to form a circle or you can make it into any desired shape. Do not press the Malai's too much they will not absord the sugar water and they tend to become hard.
5. Boil Water and Sugar in a large pan, when Water boils add the Malais one by one and let it cook and absorb the Water. The Malai will expand in size so use a bigger pan or bowl. Remove from Water and set it aside.
6. Boil Milk or heavy cream in another saucepan, stirring continuously until the Milk condenses.
7. Add Sugar, Saffrons and Cardamom Pwd and keep stirring it well enough until the Milk looses its liquid form, add in the chopped nuts.
8. When the Milk cools down drop in the Malais and refridgerate and serve them cool.
