Amul Rasmalai Review
To summarise our Amul Rasmalai Review in one sentence – You just cannot guess that this is a packaged frozen rasmalai!
Ras Malai, Rasamalei, Rasmalai or Rossomalai is a popular milk-based Indian dessert that needs no introduction. There are many factors that play a crucial role in deciding the flavor and texture of the rasmalai – the type of milk used, the quality of chenna, kneading of the chenna dough, and the period for which the rasmalai ‘discs’ are boiled. When we think of instant desserts or packaged Indian desserts, primarily milk-based desserts, we automatically assume that what will come out of thw pack would be unnatural, bad-tasting or even stale! But is that the case with Amul Rasmalai? Is the Frozen Amul Rasmalai fresh to taste? Does it have the soft and pillowy texture we associate with freshly made rasmalai? Here is the Amul Rasmalai Review.

Price and packaging – Amul’s Rasmalai comes in a box packaging. For a 500 gram box, the Amul Rasmalai is priced at Rs 200/- and contains eight pieces approximately. The frozen rasmalai, when kept in the refrigerator, will stay fresh for 2-3 days. Once open, keep refrigerated and consume within 24 hours. It is advisable to not refreeze the rasmalai once thawed.
Appearance – Off-white in color, the Amul Rasmalai does not contain saffron (kesar), unlike a lot of rasmalais at popular Bengali sweet shops. The pieces of Amul rasmalai are smaller in size in comparison to the ones we get at local sweet shops. We can see a lot of pistachios sprinkled generously throughout the pack.
Taste and texture – Melt-in-your mouth delicious! The Amul Rasmalai is very soft and has a lovely, fresh milkiness. Unlike a lot of packaged Indian desserts, this does not taste industrial or synthetic. The mild elaichi flavor, along with small pista pieces, add a delicious touch to the rasmalai. The sweetness levels are balanced, and even after a few bites, it doesn’t feel overpowering.
Amul Rasmalai has a very creamy texture, and the consistency is bang on. It looks a little fluffy but is not dry or dense from inside at all. There are little malai like lumps (rabdi), which are smooth and creamy.
Would we buy the Amul Rasmalai again? Definitely! This product is perfect for those people who have a sweet tooth and like to stock up on different types of desserts at home. As the Amul Rasmalai has a longer shelf life, this is a good option to stock in the freezer.
To summarise our Amul Rasmalai Review – It is a well-made dessert that is true to its milky flavor, and you just cannot guess if this is a frozen, packaged dessert. Thumbs up for the Amul Rasmalai from Team Mishry!

In a 500 gram box of Amul Rasmalai, there are approximately 8 pieces.
2. Why is Rasmalai so hard?
A batch of good quality rasmalai needs to be soft and spongy. Rasmalai can be challenging for various reasons. One of the top reasons rasmalai can become hard is because of the quality and texture of chenna. Another reason is that the chenna dough was over kneaded, and the rasmalai discs were boiled for too long.
3. How do you thaw frozen Rasmalai?
The frozen Amul Rasmalai can be thawed by keeping it inside the refrigerator or by keeping it at room temperature for a few minutes (winter season).
4. Is Rasmalai eaten hot or cold?
Rasmalai is always consumed cold, never hot. It needs to be chilled in a refrigerator before consumption.
