ANGOORI RASMALAI

ANGOORI RASMALAI
 
 
 
 
 
 
INGREDIENTS
  • Milk (full cream milk preferred) - 1 litre (1/2 litre for rasmalai balls & 1/2 litre for syrup)
  • Lemon juice of 1 lemon
  • Sugar - 1/3 cup (sugar syrup) + 2-3 tablespoons (thickened milk)
  • Water - 1 cup
  • Cardamom powder - 2-3 pinch
  • Saffron strands - a few
METHOD
  • First we make rasmalai balls.
  • Boil 1/2 a litre milk and as it comes to a boil, add lemon juice to it.
  • As soon as you add lemon juice, you will see milk starts curdling.
  • Once it is done, turn off the flame and you will see green whey gets separated.
  • Strain off the water and separate the milk or chenna as we call it.
  • Rinse it with water 2-3 times so that lemon effect goes away.
 
 
 
  • Next, start kneading with your palms for around 2-3 minutes, till you get a soft dough.
 
  • Now divide the dough into very small balls.
  • You will get approximately 18-20 chenna balls.
  • We keep the size of these balls very small, because once the are dipped into sugar syrup they double in size.

  • In the meantime, boil 1 cup water in a pan and add 1/3 cup sugar to it.
  • Also add a little cardamom (elaichi) powder to it.
  • Boil it well till the sugar gets dissolved completely.
  • As soon as it is done, add the rasmalai balls to it and cover the pan.
  • Make sure that the pan is big enough so that chenna balls get enough space to double in size.
  • It will take around 10-15 minutes.
  • Check after 10 minutes and if you see they have risen well, turn off the flame.
  • Keep them aside.

  • Next step is to make rasmalai syrup to dip chenna balls.
  • Boil 1/2 a litre milk in a heavy bottomed pan.
  • Boil it till it becomes almost 3/4th in quantity or a little more thicker if you like it that way.
  • Mix a few saffron strands in 1-2 tablespoons hot milk.
  • Pour these saffron strands into thickened milk.
  • Also add a little cardamom powder & 2-3 tablespoons sugar.
  • Boil well and Rasmalai syrup is ready.
  • Turn off the flame.
  • Now, take chenna balls out of sugar syrup and add them to the rasmalai syrup.
  • Garnish with saffron strands.
  • Angoori rasmalai is ready to serve.
  • Tastes best when chilled.
