Making Rabri for Ras Malai

  • When the milk is boiled, reduce the heat to medium. Boil milk on medium heat while stirring continuously. Add sugar to it and boil again by stirring continuously.
  • Do not thicken the rabri too much because if the rabri is too thick then rasgulla will not absorb the rabri.
  • Take the paneer out of the muslin cloth and transfer it to a plate. Knead the paneer  thoroughly with your palm until it becomes smooth. Add the corn floor to it and kneed it again until it becomes smooth and the corn floor mixes well.

  • After 10 - 12 minutes you will see that the disc size will increase to almost double. Flip them using a perforated spoon. Turn off the heat after 15 minutes and let it cool on the room temperature for 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes take a large bowl and put 12 - 15 pieces of ice in it. Add sugar syrup to which the discs are resting. Transfer all the discs in it. Let them rest for 30 minutes in cold sugar syrup.
  • After 30 minutes, take rasgulla disc from it and press it gently between the fingers of both hands so that all the syrup comes out of it. After removing the sugar syrup from the rasgulla, pour all the rasgullas one by one into the rabri.
  • Allow the ras malai to rest for at least 4 hours in fridge so that the rasgulla will soak the rabri properly.
