Bread Rasmalai is an instant version of traditional rasmalai.
Why choose an easy bread rasmalai version
Bread Rasmalai is a quick, easy and delicious dessert which will be ready in around 30 minutes, compared to traditional rasmalai which takes at least two and a half hours to prepare. This recipe is sure to please everyone's palate. Here I have used bread instead of cottage cheese and I have also used condensed milk along with whole milk to prepare thickened milk known as ras, which certainly reduces the cooking time. This easy version recipe can be made in a jiffy and it is a saver when we have to serve an unexpected guests, whenever we crave for something sweet or even during festive season when we have very less time to prepare the various varieties of dishes. Now a days people are so pressed for time that most of them look out for instant version recipe.
Popularity of traditional Ras Malai
Typically Rasmalai, a very popular Bengali delicacy is prepared from cottage cheese patties cooked in sugar syrup and soaked in rich and creamy thickened milk, flavoured with saffron and cardamom powder. Traditionally whole milk is boiled for a long time stirring regularly until milk reduces to almost one third of its original quantity. Rasmalai is considered as royal sweet in India, often served in weddings and other parties, it is one of the most preferred dessert during festive season. It tastes best when served chillied and garnished with dry fruits.
Let's see how to make an easy and quick bread rasmalai.
Full fat Milk: 2 cups
Sweetened Condensed Milk: 1 cup
White Bread: 6 slices
Almonds: 1 tsp, sliced
Cashews: 1 tsp, sliced
Pistachios: 1 tsp, sliced
Saffron: a big pinch
Cardamom Powder: ¼ tsp
First of all, in a deep bottom pan add milk and condensed milk, mix until well combined.
Bring it to boil on medium heat and keep stirring regularly.
Add saffron strands and continue to boil.
Also, pull the milk solids formed on the top layer to the sides of the pan.
Keep stirring regularly to prevent burning at bottom of pan and boil until it reduces to almost ⅓ of its original quantity.
Finally add cardamom powder, almonds, cashew nuts, and pistachios.
Simmer for 5 minutes, add milk solids collected on sides of the pan back to the thickened milk and turn off the heat.
Allow the thickened milk to cool down to room temperature.
Meanwhile, cut the bread slices with a cookie cutter to round shape.
When thickened milk is almost cooled down, dip and coat both sides of bread with thickened milk, transfer to a serving bowl, add more thickened milk on top of bread slices. Garnish with almonds, cashew nuts, and pistachios and serve immediately.
Alternatively, refrigerate thickened milk for 3-4 hours, dip and coat the bread in thickened milk just before serving.
Keep stirring the milk mixture regularly to prevent burning at the bottom of the pan.
Adjust condensed milk to suit your preferred taste.
Do not keep bread in thickened milk for a long time because bread tends to get almost mushy, so always add bread just before serving.
Bread rasmalai tastes best when served chilled.
Do not skip saffron as it gives nice golden colour to rasmalai and enhances the flavour as well.
