FAQs on Rasmalai Recipe
1. How long should I knead the paneer for Rasmalai?
As mentioned in Step 1 of our Rasmalai recipe, knead the paneer until it forms a smooth and pliable dough. Avoid over-kneading, as it can result in a dense and tough texture. Aim for a soft and delicate consistency.
2. How do I prevent the Rasmalai balls from breaking while cooking?
If the Rasmalai balls are breaking apart, it may be due to inadequate binding of the paneer. Make sure to knead the paneer well until it comes together smoothly and shape them gently without applying too much pressure.
Additionally, make sure the milk mixture is at a gentle simmer rather than a rolling boil when cooking the balls.
3. Can I use store-bought paneer instead of making it from scratch in the Rasmalai recipe?
While it is possible to use store-bought paneer, making it from scratch using fresh milk yields the best results. Homemade paneer ensures a softer and more authentic texture.
4. What is the difference between Rasmalai and Rabri Rasmalai?
