Rasmalai

Ingredients
2% Milk / Whole Milk -8cups
Lemon-1
Sugar- 1 3/4cups
Chopped nuts-1/4cup
Elaichi-3
Method
Squeeze the juice from the lemon n keep it ready.

1.Boil 4cups of milk in a heavy bottomed pan.

2.Slowly add the lemon juice and mix it gently. Put off the flame once the milk is curdled.

3.Strain the milk solids using a cheese cloth/muslin cloth. Wash it 2-3 times in the (cold) running water.

4.Squeeze out all the water from the milk solid(paneer). Try extract the water as much as possible.

5.Tie the paneer in the cloth and hang it for an hour.(so that the the leftover water, if any drips down).You can use this whey water while making roti's, n you will get amazing soft Roti's.

6.Take the paneer, knead it for 7-8 minutes. By then paneer will become a smooth,soft dough.

7.Make uniform sized balls out of the paneer.

8. I've flattened the paneer balls a bit, but purely it's optional! ;)

9. Combine 5 cups of water with a cup of sugar, bring it to boil. Carefully add the paneer balls, close the cooker, after one whistle and reduce the flame. Continue cooking for 5more minutes on low heat, and put off the stove.

10.Open the cooker once the pressure has gone, paneer balls would have doubled in size and they will be delicate when hot. So let it cool for sometime.

11. Keep the nuts ready. Boil 4 cups of milk in a heavy bottomed pan. Reduce the heat to medium after the milk has boiled, and stir it often to avoid it getting burned.

12. Simmer the milk till it becomes half in its quantity, then add 3/4 cup of sugar (adjust to your preference). Let it melt, then reduce the heat to low.

13. Take the rasgullas from the water, press them gently...
14. ....and add it in the simmering milk. Let the rasgullas soak the milk, say 3-4 minutes.

15. Add half of the sliced nuts, mix it gently. Add the crushed cardamom, and turn off the stove. Sprinkle the reserved nuts while serving.

Refrigerate the rasmalai after an hour. Refrigerate over night for BEST results, but they taste awesome while warm/room temperature/cold..any form though!! ;)))

I prepared this for a fare well party for one of my hubby's colleague. Here are the items from my kitchen to the party...
