    Jostlori's Note:

    I haven't tried this recipe yet, but it sounds delightful. A rasgulla is a cottage cheese ball of sorts, that is boiled in a sugar syrup and served plain with the syrup. The Rasmalai is a rasgulla that is served with a milk sauce with pistachios. YUMMMM! Can't wait to try it! This recipe seems to have a lot of steps, but the last five are ONLY if you are doing the Rasmalai version

    Units: US | Metric



    • 1 cup sugar syrup (from the rasgullas)
    • 3 cups milk
    • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom, pwd
    • 2 tablespoons pistachios, sliced
    • 2 pinches saffron, mixed few tbsp milk


    1. 1
    2. 2
      Take a heavy bottomed vessel and boil milk. Once its boiled, slowly add the lemon juice and you will find that the milk will curdle and the whey will separate. The whey will become clear which is an indication that the milk has curdled completely. Immediately add about 10-12 ice cubes and turn off flame. Leave aside for 3-4 minutes.
    3. 3
      Strain the whey and add the chenna to a damp cheese cloth or a light cotton cloth. Gather the four corners of the cloth and twist it gently and rinse under cold water to remove the sourness of the lemon juice. Tie the ends and hang it at a height and allow the whey from the chenna to drain completely. Leave aside for 30 minutes.
    4. 4
      Remove the chenna onto a wide plate. Now knead it gently for 7 minutes till there is no trace of moisture and is absolutely soft on touch. This is a very crucial step in the process of rasgulla making.
    5. 5
      While you are kneading the chenna, prepare the sugar syrup. Place a pressure cooker on the stove and add water and sugar and allow the sugar to dissolve. Bring it to a rolling boil. Add a pinch of cardamom pwd.
    6. 6
      While the sugar syrup is cooking, make small smooth balls of the kneaded chenna. Ensure there are no cracks on the balls. Slowly add the chenna balls to the boiling sugar syrup. Place lid and pressure cook upto 1 whistle and continue to cook for another 4 minutes.
    7. 7
      Turn off heat. Once the pressure is off, remove the lid. The balls will double in size and become light and springy on touch. If you feel that the balls are not cooked yet, place lid and cook for another 5 minutes without the whistle at medium heat.
    8. 8
      Remove onto a serving dish, bring to room temp, refrigerate and serve chilled along with sugar syrup at room temp OR proceed to prepare rasmalai.
    9. 9
    10. 10
      Take a heavy bottomed vessel and add milk. Bring to a boil. Reduce to medium flame and go on stirring on a constant basis for a good 30 minutes.
    11. 11
      Add the sugar syrup and continue to cook for another 20 minutes. Add the cardamom pwd, pistachios and saffron and combine. Boil for another 5 minutes.
    12. 12
      While the milk-sugar mixture is boiling, work on the rasagullas. Gently squeeze the rasgullas with a flat ladle such that it forms a patty shape and the syrup is drained out.
    13. 13
      Add the flattened rasgullas into the thickened milk and cook on low flame for 5 minutes. They will absorb the sweet syrup and Rasmalai is ready. Turn off heat and cool.
    14. 14
      Refrigerate and serve chilled.
