I've become a great fan of rasmalai since I tasted it from Annapoorna GowriShankar.Guess they use condensed milk so wanted to give a try at home using condensed milk. Homemade ones are best too if prepared in the right consistency.
You can also use store bought rasgullas, tinned ones are easy to reach - Haldirams works best .
- Dont use saffrons more, it will be over powerful and will spoil the taste.
- The addition of condensed milk not only makes the rasmalai rich but extra tasty and gives a unique flavour to it.
- You can also use the sugar syrup that comes with the rasgullas and add it to the rabri instead of sugar.
- Allow atleast 30mins sitting and refrigerating time before serving to taste best.
