Spongy Rasmalai is one of my favourite desert. There are many ways of making rasmalai and lots of my fellow bloggers have blogged rasmalai. This is my way of doing it. I use readymade rasagullas for making rasmalai as this is an easy way to do it.


Full cream milk- 1.5 ltrs
Sugar-150 gms
Haldirams Rasagullas- 1 tin
pistachios- a few crushed
yellow food colour(optional)
saffron- a few strands


Boil the milk in a thick bottomed pan or kadai. when the milk is hot ,take a tbsp of it and soak the saffron strands in it. Add the crushed pistachios to it.

Reduce the flame and stir in between till the amount of the milk reduces to half.

Squeeze out the juice from all the rasagullas and flatten it with ur hands.

Add the sugar ,food colour, stir it and add the rasagullas and saffron soaked milk. Remove from heat after 2 minutes. Refeigerate and serve chilled

Pin wheel sandwiches

Happy Republic day!!...
I got this recipe from a book called 'Pulsuvai Malar'. I wanted to try these for a long time ... and when i saw the theme for this week in Pooja's blog I thought this would be the perfect time to try this out. This is my submission to pooja's Republic Day Event.
White sandwich Bread -1/2 pack
butter spread
green chutney
Tomato chutney or tomato sauce

Take three slices of bread , trim the edges and flatten it with the help of a rolling pin. Apply tomato chutney or tomato sauce to one slice , apply green chutney to another and apply butter to the third slice.

Place the green slice on the bottom,then place the buttered slice on top of it and finally the red one.Very slightly wet the bottom slice with little water and fold it twice(like u are rolling a paper).

Then cut it into rounds. u will get lovely , colourful pin wheel sandwiches.
If u have unsliced bread it will be more easy to make these sandwiches.
For the green chutney - add 3 tsp of oil in a pan and add mustard seeds,uraddal, curry leaves, 3 green chilli slits, 1"piece of chopped ginger, 1 clove garlic chopped, 1"piece of tamarind and cleaned and chopped 1 bunch coriander leaves. saute for some time and then grind to a fine paste with salt. u can use 1/2 bunch of corianderleaves and 1/2 bunch of mint leaves too.
