diwali recipes – bread rasmalai

…diwali special recipe…

Rasmalais …hmm…the yummy creamy sweet cheese dumplings. Rasmalai is everyone’s favorite and is popular too. So this classic dessert inspires me to make another variant called bread rasmalai, with milk breads, cream, thickened milk and dry fruits. Very easy to make and rich on taste too.

Here goes the recipe for bread rasmalai. Enjoy !

Yummy bread rasmalai

Milk: 500 ml
Milk Bread: 6-8 slices
Sugar: ½ cup
Almonds: ¼ cup
Pistachio nuts: ¼ cup
Clarified butter or Ghee: 1 tbsp
Fresh cream (whipped): 1 tbsp
Cardamom powder: ½ tsp
Saffron: a few threads

Method to Prepare:

Slightly roast the almonds and pistachio nuts and ground them coarsely in mortar and pestle. Reserve them.
Cut the bread slices into round shape with the help of a round object of sharp edge. Apply a little ghee on both sides and toast it on a griddle or tava very lightly.

Boil the milk till it reduced to its half. Add sugar and cardamom powder to it. Mix it well till the sugar dissolves completely.

Remove from the heat and add the threads of saffron to it. Let it stand for few minutes till it cools down.

Add the coarsely ground mix of almonds and pistachio nuts. Reserve some of the nuts for garnishing. Mix it well and keep it aside.

Apply the whipped cream on the bread slices and pour the thickened milk over it.

Garnish the bread rasmalai with the almonds and pistachio.

Serve the bread rasmalai only when it is cold.
