Quick rosogollar payesh for diwali

rosogollar payesh

No sweets for diwali, No! That's what my brain was telling me all through the week. So I decided to make something and use a shortcut. I've heard about rosogollar payesh and have been wanting to try it. And I can get ready made rasgullas, that's half my work done.

I used one tin of rasgullas and the syrup to sweeten the milk. It took me a while to thicken the milk, about a couple of hours, but it was sitting in the back and I stirred it often and let it do its magic. I cooked the rasgullas for 5-10 min in the milk which gave it a nice creaminess. I threw in a good handful of almonds for crunchiness and that's it!

It's really simple, here's how to do it.

1 tin rasgollas ( about 15-18)
about 5-6 cups of milk (I used 3 cups non fat and 2 and half cups of full fat)
about 2 cups of rasgolla syrup
good pinch of saffron
handful of slivered almonds

Take 5-6 tspoon of warm milk and soak the saffron. Heat the rest of the milk in a thick bottomed pan. Leave a spoon in the pan so that the milk doesn't spill over. Heat it on medium low and let it come to a boil.

After it has been boiling for an hour, add in the syrup, half of the saffron and let it cook to another hour. You want to end up with about 2-3 cups of milk.

Add the rasgollas, the rest of the saffron and almonds and let it cook for another 5 minutes on low.
