I know you're already lip smacking and you better be! this stuff is real good and goes out to all those friends who've been unsuccessfully trying to follow a diet hehe. rules are meant to be broken pal. the presentation was done by my mum. she's damn good at it. i'm no less but she's better.
milk powder (sweet)-11/2 cup
baking powder-11/2 tsp
condensed milk (sweetened)-1/2 cup
cardamom powder-to flavour (about ¼ tsp)
rose petals for deco
Sieve the milk powder and baking powder. Add the egg and mix gently to make a smooth dough by oiling your palm. Take care not to make the dough tough coz the malais become tough too. Make small balls (not too small) and press each ball to resemble the malai. Boil the milk and condensed milk in a wide thick bottomed pan. Once it boils turn on sim and put the balls one by one gently into the milk. You can do it in two batches to avoid crowding the pan. The balls swell in five mins. Keep a little while more. Take it off the flame and garnish with cardamom powder and rose petals and TRY making it look something like this :)
Cool, chill and serve.
The malais tend to stick to each other slightly after a while once it’s ladled into the dessert bowl. If you have a problem with that (I didn’t) serve it into a wide dessert bowl before refrigerating it. The ras of the malai may seem too thin initially but acquires the right consistency once refrigerated. use only less than half a cup condensed milk if you don't want it to be rasmalai sweet! This measure makes 22-23 balls.
