Rasmalai —  subho mahalaya to all—

Today is Mahalaya an auspicious occasion that announces the advent of Goddess Durga .

The chanting of Birendra Kishore Bhadra’s chandipath fills the air from early morning ,  these are my childhood memories ,  and every year  we play the recorded version of chandipath to relive these memories –when we were woken up at 4 a.m in the morning to listen to the radio  in Akashbani …

So here is the recipe for Rasmalai —- something sweet  — marking the start of Devipaksha —

Rasmalai — is a soft cottage cheese patties in dry fruit laced saffron flavoured creamy milk rabri —

This is an instant version of rasmalai using readymade rasgullas — and condensed milk to make rabri —

Method :

Take small rasgullas , squeeze them gently to take out the sugar syrup from them.

Make rabri by cooking 1/2 cup of condensed milk and  500ml of milk, 1 cup of sugar  and 10 to 12 strands of  saffron , until thick and creamy .

Add drained rasgullas and chopped pistachios in cooked rabri ,  cook further for 5 minutes ..  .

Your Instant Rasmalai is ready—
