Well i tried them first time too...In Mathura we use have smaller version of them called Malai-Laddoo...As a kid we loved them as there were no account of how many we had them in single scoop
On google you will get different version like with eggs,or flour (some even uploaded store brought Ras-gullas just dunked in thick scented milk as home made Ras Malai )but i recommend this one as even if your balls doesn't comes out successfully (which have very less chance),you will be able to at least taste it
1 Cup Paneer
2 Cup Water
1/2 Cup Sugar
3 Cup Milk
1/4Cup Mixed Nuts(finely chopped)
2tbsp Condensed Milk
- Take paneer and blend it for few seconds.it will turn into dough like.Make small size balls from it.
- Take water and sugar in pan and boil it on high heat for 5 minutes.Turn heat to medium.
- Slowly slip paneer balls in syrup,don't touch and let it cook for 5 minutes.
- Soak saffron in 1/4 cup warm milk.
- Take milk in heavy bottom pan and place on medium heat.Let it simmer for 10 minutes.Mix in condensed milk,khoya,sugar and cook for another 5 minutes.it will turn thicker.
- Carefully take balls from sugar syrup one by one with the help of spoon and drop them in milk.Let it cook for another 5 minutes.
- Finally add saffron with milk and nuts.Remove it from heat and let it cool down with closed lid.
- Chill before serving.You can garnish it with some extra nuts and silver verk.
# If making bigger balls than make flatten disk like shape of paneer dough.it will help it to absorb syrup.
