Bread Rasmalai

I don’t have a sweet tooth but that’s not the case with my husband. When it comes to exploring sweets I tend to think towards cakes, puddings & pies. Before wedding, my husband had once mentioned that Rasmalai is his weakness. It still didn’t get me to try my hands at this dish & husband got to have this at wedding functions mostly.

For his birthday this year, I decided to make this at home. Considering the lockdown, this was the only gift I could think of. A quick search on net got me to this recipe, with minor iterations from me it was licked off by everyone at home!

Serves – 5 Time – 1.5 hrs

Ingredients

  1. Full cream Milk – 1 ltr
  2. White bread slices – 6
  3. Cashew nuts powdered – 12
  4. Pistachio chopped – 12
  5. Almonds chopped – 10
  6. Saffron – 2 pinch
  7. Sugar – 30 gms
  8. Dry fruits for garnishing

Method

  1. Boil milk and lower the flame and continue to boil till it reduces to 500 ml while stirring continuously
  2. Add sugar, dry fruits and saffron. Keep boiling on low flame till it reduces to 250 ml
  3. Let the mixture cool down a bit
  4. Cut the bread slices in round shape using glass/ bowl/ cookie cutter
  5. Dip the slices in to the mixture and let it soak for 15-20 seconds
  6. Arrange on the serving dish and pour the mixture on top
  7. Keep in fridge for 2-3 hours before serving

Notes

  1. We prefer mild sweet and hence I kept the sugar to 30 gms. It can be adjusted as per your preference
  2. This dish requires time since it is made on low flame and continuous stirring, so plan for it accordingly
