    Well, the dough becomes sticky while kneading,and than the malai balls puffed up quickly but remain hard from inside, as if the inner side is not well cooked,, plus as soon as it cools down, the malai balls shrink/reduced from its original puffed size,, I think if we knead it with milk or water instead of adding egg,,,, has some body tried???can some body guide please,,,,thanks...


    thanku so much... this seem so much like the regular rasmalai we eat outside... worked out well


    Thanks for the recipe. It came out pretty well. The dough was quite sticky so I had to keep wetting my hands. I was too lazy to make 20 balls so just made around 12 balls and they puffed uppp and became huge. Quite easy. Thanks once again.


    i'm sorry but this recipe is so bad, i followed it but it tasted nothin like i expected, i was extremely disapointed, i'm nvr tryin to make rasmalai again, sorry



    i like your recipe. its coool


    malai balls had become much harder and do mention how much sugar is to be added.


    That went so good I surprise every one. In 30 mint best ras malai of the world you can make it at your home


    this didnt work out for me???why?? the milkballs just started to melt while boiling why??


    i had same problem ... the rasgullas were getting harder as chilled.... adn i got the solution also it was using a bad baking pwd so u also try with a different baking pwd or dont add maida and see i think it will work sarvat


    I tried it,but the rosogollahs were hard and did not fluff.Do you think its because I put too much sugar with the milk.You did not mention whether milk and sugar should be boiled in high heat or not.if anyone knows the solon of my problem then psle l lease add it in your comments.


    ras malai would taste best without eggs


    i use chenna to make the ras malai balls ... so instead of using milk powder and egg, simply use chenna (made from 1ltr milk) add a little suji (1tbls) and 1tbls of maida and powdered sugar to taste.


    hi.. can u pls give me a replacement of the egg... veggies!

    Excellent! thank you so much for this recipe that I was looking for. Very easy to do and everybody loves. I add some sliced almond in the milk.

    i knew this recipe but these days it doesn't work, May be because of milk powder, the malai balls spread out, can you help me.


    can there be an alternative for egg?(egg replacer)
