A milky bowl of ras malai

Quick Overview

Ras malai is basically powered milk balls in sweetened milk. It doesn't sound like much but is definitely worth an attempt.


Ras malai consists of sugary white cream, or yellow-coloured (flattened) balls of chhana soaked in malai (clotted cream) flavoured with cardamom. It is cooked in sugar syrup and milk with saffronpistachios and kheer as stuffing.Homemade ras malai is usually made from powdered milk, all-purpose flour, baking powder and oil, which are kneaded to form a dough, moulded into balls, and dropped into simmering milk cream.
