Ras Malai~~Indian Cooking Challenge

Ras Malai, my most favourite desserts which i can eat anytime..When Srivalli announced this month"s Indian Cooking Challenge, i opened my mail very eagerly wat she choosed for this month, when i saw its was ras malai i was really excited to prepare my favourite milk sweet...I prepared ras malai yesterday evening, and served everyone at home after our dinner, my whole bowl of ras malai vanished within few minutes, everyone at home literally relished the bowl i served the rasmalai, they turned out prefect and very truly enjoyed each and every spoon of this droolworthy rasmalai...I didnt have any difficulties to prepare this rasmalai as i followed each and every steps given by Srivalli..

Rasmalai


3litres Milk
3tbsp Vinegar
5cups Water
16Tbsp Sugar ( 8 for sugar syrup& 8 for milk syrup)
8nos Saffron strands
1/4cup Pista (chopped)
1tsp Maida flour
2nos Cardamom (crushed)

Boil two Litres of milk and let it cool. Refrigerate the milk for 12 hours. The next day or after 12 hours, remove the thick layer of skin formed over the milk. Now boil the milk, when the milk boils, add vinegar. wait for a minute or two, the paneer will start floating on top and the whey water will stay on the bottom of the vessel. Line a muslin or a cotton cloth over a bowl, filter the paneer and pour 2 cups of water on it, to remove the sourness of vinegar and then tie it well and let it hang on for one hour, till the whey water drops out completely..

Remove the paneer, knead for 5 minutes, add the maida flour to the paneer and make small balls..In a pressure cooker, add the three cups of water and 8tbsp sugar, bring it boil, add the paneer balls one by one and close the lid..cook in simmer for 15 minutes, tha balls will become double in size..Press gently to avoid the excess sugar syrup..

While preparing the sugar syrup, start making the milk syrup by boiling the milk to get reduced to half of the quantity.. add the sugar, saffron strands and crushed cardamom to the milk, mix everything well, and put the paneer balls to the milk syrup..Cool it completely and serve chilled topped with pistas..
