Ras Malai with whole milk 2023


  1. In a pan, heat the milk over medium heat. Once it comes to a boil, reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 20-25 minutes, or until the milk has reduced by half and thickened.
  2. Add sugar and cardamom powder and stir until the sugar dissolves. Then add saffron strands (if using) and set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the heavy cream, powdered milk, all-purpose flour and semolina.
  4. Roll the mixture into small balls and flatten them slightly.
  5. Heat oil in a deep frying pan over medium-high heat.
  6. Carefully slide the balls into the hot oil and fry until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes.
  7. Remove the fried balls from the oil and drain them on a paper towel-lined plate.
  8. Once the fried balls are cool enough to handle, gently squeeze out the excess oil and drop them into the warm, sweetened milk mixture.
  9. Let the balls sit in the milk mixture for about 15-20 minutes, or until they are fully absorbed and have doubled in size.
  10. Serve the ras malai chilled, garnished with chopped pistachios or almonds.

Note: You can also add some condensed milk for added richness.
