Ras Malai

The main Dessert Ras Malai...which i made for this deepavali...with no help from anyone at home....but i made a ISD cal (can u belive it) to talk to LG and bugged her with so many questions..anyway thanks LG for ur help...

Here goes steps how i made it..hopefully will get lots of comments to impove it, but it was yummy and came out so wel.....my mil was immpressed..

Ingredients
Ras
1. 1/2lts of Milk
2. 1 cup of Sugar
3. Cardamon - 1tsp
4. Badam and pista finely chopped

Malai
1. 2lts of Milk
2. Vinegar - 2tsp

Tto cook the Malai
1. 1 cup of water
2. 1/2 cup of sugar.


METHOD:

In a pan add milk and bring to boil.

When it starts boiling add Vinegar and stir continuously until the milk curdles completely.

Let it cool and set completely. Drain using muslin or cotton cloth using as much strength.

and tie the cloth for abt 4hrs.

Note- there should be no water left else the panner balls will break when put in sugar water.

now slowly form small round balls out of the panner
Meanwhile in the pressure cooker add 1 cup of water along with 1/2 cup of sugar. When the sugar melts in the water add just 10 paneer balls keeping a good distance between each of them and pressure cook for 2 whistles. Repeat the process untill all is done adding little sugar and water as required for each batch. (If u add all the balls into it the shapes with changes , so its better to keep distance b/w each balls)
In another pan heat the evaporated milk with sugar ,saffron and Cardamon and bring it to boil.
To this add the above malai balls draining them from the sugar syrup.
Now add the finned chopped Badam and Pista
Chill for a few hours and enjoy.
