Serves – 4
Preparation time – 10 mins

  • Into a heavy bottomed pan, add in the milk and let it come to a boil. Keep mixing it occasionally to prevent scalding.
  • Meanwhile, into 3/4 Cup of milk add in powdered sugar. Add in yellow food color. Mix well until combined.
  • Squeeze out the juice from the rasgullas by pressing gently in between your palms.
  • Drop the rasgullas into the sweetened milk that we just made.
  • Keep them aside.
  • Meanwhile the milk should have probably come to boil. Add in the saffron.
  • Continue to cook it further until the milk volume is reduced to 1 1/2 Cups.
  • It takes about 10 mins to attain this stage.
  • Keep acraping the sides and the bottom of the pan so that nothing sticks to the pan.
  • So once the milk is reduced to 1 1/2 Cups, add in the sugar and cook for 5 mins.
  • Turn of the heat and remove the thickened milk into a seperate bowl and let it cool completely.
  • So once we have the milk soaked rasgullas and the thickened milk chilled, drop in the milk soaked rasgullas into the thickened milk.
  • Top them with some sliced pistachios and serve immediately.
