Ras Malai

Hey all
Ramadan Mubarak !

So today i woke up with an image of ras malai in my head, I knew right than that i had to try it Today. There was nothing my mother could do to change my  mind about that :D, so she just left me alone in the kitchen to make a mess :D
I've had this recipe for a while but never got around to making it, even though its a fairly simple and easy recipe. And believe me, the taste is amazing !!!

This recipe makes about 18-24 depending on the size u make.

Ingredients :
Milk : 1 liter
Sugar : 10-12 tbsp (depending on ur taste, i used 10)
Cardamom : 2-3
Milk Powder (i used Nido) : 1 cup
Baking powder : 1 tsp
Oil : 1 tbsp
Maida : 1 tbsp leveled
Egg : 1

Method :

Mix together 1 liter Milk, sugar and Cardamom. Put on low flame and bring to boil.

Let it simmer for 25-30 minutes to thicken.

 Meanwhile mix together Milk powder, Baking powder, Flour, Egg and oil... form a medium dough...

 Make small balls...

 ...and lightly drop them in the simmering milk. Half cover the pot and leave for 10-12 minutes on low flame.

 After 10-12 minutes they will swell and rise to the surface. Remove from heat.

Garnish with almonds or pistachios. Chill and serve !



  1. Tomorrow I am going to try this. What do u mean by "medium dough" ? any tips so that there are no lumps in the centre of the golas after cooking?

  2. @Fatima Baloch Medium dough means that it should not be too soft or too hard that it crumbles. Once you put them in milk, take one out on a spoon and cut through it, if its still yellow in the middle, leave for a few more minutes.
    Once they are cooked through, they are the most amazing thing ever !

  3. Dey are always uncookedin between...any tips wat cn i do to stop it from happeing

    1. I've never had this problem !!
      try this recipe !!
      hopefully they'd be cooked in the middle.

  4. After rasmalaai r cooked flame off the stove and cover lid on the pan and let it rest for 15-20 mins ... The prb of undercooked rasmalaai center will b resolve hopefully ... This is chef Tahira mateen's tip

  5. Helpppppp.... I made ras malai for 7 8 times..but couldn't able to make it perfect..when I drop balls in milk they swell n rise to double..but when I cook further by covering it with shrinks again and become hard from center..what should I do?

  6. Wow mouthwatering and very tasty looking recipe. I will definitely try this at home. Have you tried Pakistani Cooking Recipes I love all Pakistani Recipes and mostly the appetizers by zarnak sidhwa recipes
