Bread Ras Malai and an Award

Today I am very happy to get this  'Happy Blogger' Award passed by Sonali who is kind enough to share this Award. I always wonder how she can manage to cook so many recipes with Only Sea Food, as I can hardly cook one or two varieties with Fish. If you are looking for superb sea food recipes, Sonali's 'Only Fish Recipes' is your one shop stop.
Bread Ras Malai ( lean version)
Today let me share this happiness with the touch of sweet and here featuring the recipe of Ras Malai made with Bread. Hmmmm, Ras Malai, the name it self reminds the melting moments of panner combined with cream in the mouth. Malai means cream, usually this dish is made with soaked panner balls in the cream with the flavor of cardamom. It sounds very Yummm and Fattyyy also. So I am in search of lighter version of this recipe, and this one turned out to be the winner... Basically, in this recipe we replace the panner balls with the Bread Slices cut into round shapes which looks like flatten panner balls in color and texture. Except that rest of the recipe is same as Ras Malai. So with out loosing the flavors, this is the best way to eat the lean Ras Malai.
Non fat version of Ras Malai

Ingredients:
Milk - 2 cups
Almonds - 20
Milk Powder -  2 Tbsp
Milk - 1/3 cup
Saffron Flakes - 1 tsp
Milk - 1 Tbsp
Sugar - 1/3 cup
cardamom - 1 or 2
White Sandwhich  Bread - 10 slices ( or 20 small rounds)
Cashew - 8
Ghee - 1tsp

Method:

  1. Boil the Milk along with the sugar until it becomes into 1/2 of it and put it in the refrigerator.
  2. Soak the almonds in hot water for 15 min. This makes the peal come very easily. Peal this and grind it into fine powder (or paste) along with the cardamom.
  3. Soak the safforn flakes in the warm 1 Tbsp milk
  4. Mix the milk powder in the 1/3 cup of milk. and mix it very well so that any of the lumps are not formed.
  5. Trim the and edges of the bred slices. You can use any lid for the round shape. and press it gently on the Bread slice in the corners. you will get two rounds out of one slice. ( I have used one of my tin from the Taalimpu Box for the round mold and I have used Daily Breads Sandwhich bread which is wide and large than usual brands, so I managed to get 4 rounds out of each slice.)
  6. Now Take a wide bowl, and add the refrigerated cold milk. Add the Almond Powder to it and mix it well.
  7. Add the Milk powder added milk and mix it well so that any of the lumps are removed. Now drop the bread rounds into this milk and pour the safforn mixture on top. (Leave for 30 minutes so that bread slices will get all the flavors)
  8. Fry the cashew in Ghee until Golden color and top the Ras mali with golden cashew Nuts.


There you Go!! Now Yummyy but not Fatty Ras Malai is ready in minutes, Now I can eat that with out any guilt. Though I don't eat too many sweets, usually I don't say NO to milk sweets, and this one became the favorite these days. Of Course VJ (real sweet lover at my home) wasn't  excited with this, as it tasted like Bread and Milk to him.  For the authentic taste of Ras Malai, you gott to eat the real Ras Malai made with Panner, of course if you don't mind to eat those extra calories.

As we used Almonds, Milk, Bread and less sugar this is very Nutritious and healthy for Kids. And also as we avoided Panner preparation, this can prepared very quickly ( less than 30 mins).

Now let me share my award and joy to some of my blogger friends....
