How to prepare rasmalai instant pot

  1. Check out the instant pot paneer recipe for chenna.
  2. Transfer the paneer block to a clean surface or a plate. Break it into small crumbles and start kneading with the palm of your hand. The paneer dough should be smooth and it may take at least 5-10 minutes to smoothen. This step is important for light and spongy rasmalai.
  3. If you feel, the panner is not drained well, the dough is not coming together. Add corn starch and knead the dough until it soft and airy.
  4. To start shaping the disks, divide the paneer dough into equal parts. Take each one in between your palms and start rolling until it is smooth without any cracks. Now gently put some pressure in between your palms and flatten the ball. Make sure there are no cracks.
  5. Repeat the step with the rest of the balls. Cover them with a damp cheesecake cloth so they don’t get dry.
