Rasmalai Using Milk Powder

My brothers and I love chenna based Bengali Sweets. Rasgulla, Rasmalai, Chum Chum, Champakali etc. I have tried making Rasmalai using Milk Powder a lot of times. But every time I got hard centres. I tried different recipes from the internet but never got good results. Hence, I stopped making Rasmalai using Milk Powder. Finally, Yesterday I succeeded. I got perfect spongy Rasmalai with no hard centre. I was so happy.

I want to share a few tips. First, After making the dough for the Rasmalai do not rest the dough. make the balls as soon as possible and add it to the milk. Second, Cover it with a lid while cooking. This will ensure it gets cooked thoroughly. Third, Do not add a lot of balls at once. There should be enough space for it to expand. Lastly, Use good quality milk powder. I have used Nido.
