Ras Malai is a rich and delicious milk based sweet. It is very popular in India and is often prepared during festivals, special occasions and weddings. Ras Malai looks quite difficult to make but is actually very easy if you make it a few times and get a hang of it.

The main ingredients used in making Ras Malai are Milk, Saffron, Dry fruits and Sugar. In this recipe, we will be preparing Rasgullas first and then dipping them in the reduced Milk mix or Malai.

Let's move to the recipe of making Ras Malai at home.

To make rasgulla

500 ml milk
1 tsp vinegar
1 tsp corn flour
4 cups water
1 cup sugar

To make rabri/ Reduced Milk mix/ Malai

500 ml milk
1/4 cup sugar
Pinch of saffron
Pinch of cardamom powder
3 tbsp Sliced almonds and pistachios


  • Boil 500 ml milk in a pan. Add vinegar and mix well. The milk solids will separate from the water.
  • Switch off the gas and strain the water using a muslin cloth and strainer.
  • Wash the chenna/ paneer with water a couple of times to remove the sour taste.
  • Squeeze out all the excess water gently.
  • Then transfer the chenna to a wide bowl.
  • Add corn flour and knead it nicely till you get a smooth ball
  • Now make small chenna patties and keep ready.
  • Boil water and sugar in a pan till the sugar dissolves.
  • Add the chenna patties and cook for about 15 minutes in medium flame.
  • Once done, switch off the gas.
  • The Rasgullas are now ready.
  • Carefully transfer the cooked ras gullas to a bowl of chilled water.
  • Let it soak for about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile we will make the rabri or Malai.
  • For this, heat 500 ml milk in another pan, and then add Saffron.
  • Cook for about 5 to 7 minutes while stirring till the milk reduces to half.
  • Add sugar, cardamom powder, sliced almonds and pistachios and mix well.
  • Cook for a couple of minutes. Switch off the gas.
  • Squeeze out water from the Ras gullas and add them to the Rabri.
  • Ras Malai is now ready.
  • Transfer the Ras Malai to a serving bowl and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
  • Ras malai tastes best when served cold.
