  • While preparing Rabdi to use a thin pan, because there are high chances for milk to burn
  • While preparing Chenna/paneer balls you have to take care of one thing not to use full-fat milk or buffalo milk because if the milk contains a large amount of fat then the Rasmalai won’t be spongy and it won’t be light and fluffy. It will turn very hard, and the moment you will soak in sugar syrup they will breakout.
  • For curdling milk, you can use vinegar instead of vinegar.
  • You can use some yellow or saffron food colour to the milk.
  • While preparing Rabdi don’t milk make it too thick otherwise the chenna/ paneer balls won’t get soak appropriately into it.
  • When preparing paneer balls to use 1-2 tbsp cornflour, so that paneer balls don’t break.
  • While paneer balls adding in sugar syrup boil in the syrup should be maintained throughout the cooking process syrup should not get settled, only the Tikkis will get fluff and get that sponginess.
