Divine Indulgence: Rasmalai Recipe

Experience the heavenly flavors of Rasmalai, a beloved Indian sweet that features soft and spongy paneer (Indian cottage cheese) dumplings soaked in a creamy, saffron-infused milk syrup. This delicate dessert is sure to delight your senses with its rich and luxurious taste.


For Paneer Dumplings:

  • 1 liter full-fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice or vinegar
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4-5 cups water (for boiling paneer balls)

For Milk Syrup:

  • 1 liter full-fat milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • A few saffron strands
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • Chopped nuts (almonds, pistachios) for garnish


  1. Prepare Paneer:

    • Boil 1 liter of milk in a heavy-bottomed pan. Once it boils, reduce heat and add lemon juice or vinegar gradually while stirring until the milk curdles.
    • Once the whey separates from the curdled milk, strain it using a muslin cloth or cheesecloth. Rinse the paneer under cold water to remove the acidic taste.
    • Press the paneer under a heavy object for about 1 hour to remove excess water. Then knead the paneer until smooth.
  2. Make Paneer Balls:

    • Divide the kneaded paneer into equal-sized portions and roll them into smooth balls. Flatten them slightly to form discs.
    • In a separate pot, boil 2 cups of water with 1 cup of sugar. Once the sugar dissolves, gently drop the paneer balls into the boiling syrup.
    • Cook the paneer balls in the syrup for about 10-12 minutes on medium heat. They will double in size and become spongy. Remove from heat and let them cool.
  3. Prepare Milk Syrup:

    • In another pot, boil 1 liter of milk. Add sugar, saffron strands, and cardamom powder. Stir continuously to prevent the milk from sticking to the bottom.
    • Simmer the milk until it reduces slightly and thickens to a creamy consistency. Keep stirring occasionally.
  4. Assemble Rasmalai:

    • Gently squeeze the cooked paneer balls to remove excess syrup.
    • Place the paneer balls in the saffron-infused milk syrup. Let them soak for at least 2-3 hours in the refrigerator to absorb the flavors.
  5. Garnish and Serve:

    • Garnish Rasmalai with chopped nuts like almonds and pistachios.
    • Serve chilled for the best taste and texture.
