Orange Rasmalai

Today was one such funny day which I am never gonna forget, My Milk refused to curdle, it was damn funny .I kept adding lemon juice, Vinegar, curd, green chilly but like a Nakhre wali chori , it simply refused ūüėõ It is still sitting and I am waiting that it might give up lol . The reason I wanted the milk to curdle is because I¬†was planning to make¬†Orange Rasmalai ūüôā¬†aren‚Äôt they cute looking.¬†Rasmalai¬†is¬†my favorite dessert, its a¬†dumplings made from cottage or riccotta cheese soaked in sweetened, thickened milk delicately flavored with cardamom. Served chilled and garnished with dry¬†fruit.


It’s a citrusy twist to¬†¬†the classic Indian dessert, Rasmalai. Me & my sister were discussing about it yesterday & I wanted to simply make it because I am a Orange lover & I loved the idea too ūüôā I was very skeptical about the result when I started to make this and as expected my milk refuse to curdle.May be because I added the orange juice along with lemon juice. So started again , this time I added Vinegar & when the milk started curdling then I added orange juice, zest & flesh & VOILA!!!!! I was able to get the desired Chena to make my Orange Rasmalai.


Citrus and dairy is a tricky combination and to be honest I not have never even tasted this combination before.But to my surprise this expermiment of making Orange rasmalai came out extraordinary delicious with a very refreshing burst of flavors. I am so very glad to have tried out this unusual combo & sharing with you all. lets check how to make this dessert.

  1. In a heavy bottom pan heat 1 liter milk . Switch off the heat when it comes to a boil.

  3. As soon as milk start curdling add 1/2 cup Orange juice , Orange zest & orange flesh.Let it rest for 5 minutes.
  4. Drain the curdled milk using a cheese cloth.
  5. Wash the cheese under running water to remove the traces of lemon juice.
  6. Now hang the cheese cloth for an hour to drain all the whey from the cheese.
  7. Mean while, heat the remaining 1 liter milk in a heavy bottom pan.Cook on low heat, till milk is reduced to half.
