A quick and easy shortcut rasmalai recipe where the rasmalai pieces are made with milk powder and egg and the base is cooked down milk with some condensed milk to give it richness.
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Indian
Serves: 4
For the rasmalai pieces
  • Milk Powder - 1.5 cups
  • Egg - 1
For the rasmalai base
  • Full fat milk - 4 cups
  • Sweetened condensed milk - ¾ cup (adjust according to your taste)
  • Crushed cardamom pods - 2- 3
  • You can use other flavouring of choice like rosewater, pistachios, almonds, saffron, etc.
  1. Mix the egg and the milk powder together to form a thick, sticky dough-like mass. Divide into lemon sized balls and flatten gently on palms. If too sticky, dampen palms. Lay these flattened pieces without overlapping, on a tray.
  2. Heat a wide bottomed pan and bring the milk to boil. Once it starts boiling, bring the heat to sim and gently, very gently, add the milk powder-egg discs to this.
  3. You don't need to mix or stir much, but be careful to give the discs enough space from each other in the liquid. They will expand a bit when they start cooking.
  4. After about 10 mins, add the crushed cardamom and. Let it cook for another 10 mins.
  5. When the pieces have expanded considerably and seem soft and cooked through (take out once piece, break and check inside if the dough is still sticky), remove from fire.
  6. Add the condensed milk when still hot and mix gently. Adjust amount according to sweetness required.
  7. Chill before serving.
