Instant Rasmalai is a quick version of the Bengali Rasmalai. A no bake dessert using milk powder to make the dumpling later to be cooked in saffron flavored milk
Rasmalai is one of my favorite all time desserts. While the original recipe of Rasmalai is quite elaborate and time consuming. This one is shorter and as the name Instant Rasmalai. I came across this delicious dessert at my neighbour Zulekha Aunty’s house. She is a sweet pakistani lady who loves to share her love of cooking. We bonded a lot on food.
This recipe is an egg based with the combination of milk powder. Sorry vegetarians. So we start the process of preparing the milk with saffron & sugar/condense milk. You see the yellow color in the picture. That is the result of adding saffron. Color and aroma, it is one heavenly combination. Once the milk is boiling we will lower the flame & keep on simmer. In the meantime we start making the dough with milk powder, little bit of flour , baking powder and a small size egg. Divide the dough into twelve equal part and make a ball , flattening in the middle. These dumplings are added to the simmering milk and cooked. Cool & serve with a garnish of pistachio & rose flakes.
