Stephanie, Soma has her father's recipe for rasgullas on her blog. I haven't made them at home myself but I do have her recipe bookmarked. If you try it before I do, please do let me know how it worked for you. It is labor intensive.

You could also look online for canned rasgullas. Also, please know that my recipe for ras malai is completely inauthentic as I use skim milk and barely sweeten it. Usually ras malai has milk that has been cooked down and sweetened. Some folks mix condensed milk with regular milk as a shortcut. I hope this helps!

Hi, rasgullas aren't available anywhere near me. Do you have a good recipe to make them from scratch? im dying to make this! :(

Nabeela, traditionally the milk is usually boiled down and rather thick. With lots of malai. My recipe is the one that is not authentic - it's a shortcut which appeals to us because it is lower in calories. :-D

Hey Manisha,
A lady at a potluck I recently went to made this ras malai recipe. The milk syrup was really watery though. Is that the way traditional ras malai is served? I've always had the ras malai with milk the consistency of condensed milk....so I was wondering if I've only had un-authentic ones so far.

My mom makes rasmalai the same way. Only she boils the milk and reduces it to half to make it thick. Rasmalai looks delish and so does the wadis. Thikha and meetha, what a lovely combo.

2006-05-06T18:37:00.000-06:00

Hey MT, I am sure your ras malai tastes fabulous but I don't think our methods are alike.

Mine is a one-bowl, no-cook quick method that uses a simple trick: allows the spongy rasgulla to assume its normal shape and size as it is released slowly under the milk. I don't soak the rasgullas overnight or boil them in the milk, as you do. I hope that helps!

Hi,
I also do the same way. I have posted early march. Please take a look.

2006-05-03T07:32:00.000-06:00

Uff... I missed this...Sworrry Manisha... but I agree it does look RATHER yum if it is a sauce. Ok, I get it that you got to swallow a very rare medium sized ostrich, so what else is new? (huge wink):-)

2006-04-28T23:59:00.000-06:00

There you go again with blood and gore! It was medium-rare but that was some sort of a delicious sauce. I loved the meat.

My school-mate from Kenya tells me that ostrich farming is a big thing in Kenya as the meat is considered to be a delicacy and is in high demand in the UK, Europe and the US. And then I heard that there are ostrich ranches in the US, too. I never thought I would ever eat ostrich meat. The closest I ever got to exotic or wild meat (for me) before this was duck.

2006-04-28T22:35:00.000-06:00

Nahiiiiiin Manisha! Is that "blood" on the ostrich? Or am I seeing some kind of sauce? It does look deli, but I just couldn't have it now, could I?:-(

Shyamey, after my trip to the East Coast and the fabulous food in Manchester at Cala's, I'm getting there. :-D You think you'd ever try something like ostrich?

2006-04-27T02:55:00.000-06:00

Gulping contest it definitely used to be Manisha! My hubby and I are huge ras malai fans and my son's a gulab jamun kind, so when he was all of 3 years, he'd sit in a corner eating them like a Little Master Muffet and we'd compete between ourselves:-). Yes, I do rather like the whiteness of your ras malai! Why don't you just make a tinful for yourself and gulp them down by the way?:-) and then,in due course, we'd really know what "fat" means:-)

2006-04-26T14:02:00.000-06:00

Make 'em and enjoy 'em, Lakshmi!

Hey Shyama! Gulping contest, eh?! Since there are only 14 rasgullas in each tin, I have to stop myself from doing precisely that before my guests arrive. I've seen and eaten both types of ras malai - the one with saffron and the one without (like the one I make). I prefer the 'pure' one, as you put it. Good to have you here!

2006-04-26T07:49:00.000-06:00

Manisha...yum yum...this is for funky-dunkies like me for sure:-)Now to get out and get Haldiram's. This is definitely going to be made at home as at Indore my hubby and I used to have ras malai gulping contests at a nearby place and we really miss it over here. I think they added saffron too there, it had a yellowish tinge. But these look so PURE!:-)

2006-04-24T16:18:00.000-06:00

Gini, they taste more like the traditional ras malai to me than the ones made from scratch with ricotta cheese. The traditional ras malai is flatter while these are more rounded.

My sister used to make ras malai by starting with whole milk, making the home-made cheese, kneading it into balls and steaming them in the pressure cooker. I don't have the time to do all that and let's not even discuss the clean-up thereafter!

2006-04-24T15:02:00.000-06:00

Hey they look really authentic! I once tried making rasmalai from scratch, and they turned out really disappointing. Maybe I found my answer.

2006-04-24T14:08:00.000-06:00

Ashwini, when I first looked at Haldiram's rasgullas, I didn't find them particularly inspiring. In any case, in my mind, nothing can compare with the rasgullas made by Brijwasi's (near Khar (W) station, Bombay). Haldiram's canned rasgullas are small and 'hard' but they undergo a transformation when dunked in milk, after squeezing all that sweet syrup out. They become incredibly soft and spongy.

I haven't had the time to call my aunt yet. I keep missing the window within which it's not too late or early for either of us.

Hi Me! Welcome to IFR!! Try it out and let me know what you think!

I am like you :-) Give me dunking anyday. When I saw the recipe I went "aah....why didnt I ever think of this?". Lemme try this sometime. And you are so lucky to get to meet a fellow blogger!
