Bread rasmalai is a traditional Indian dessert that comes together in a jiffy!

Bread rasmalai is a traditional Indian dessert. This particular recipe is a quick and easy version that you can whip up in just 25 minutes—compared to the traditional rasmalai recipe, which takes at least two and a half hours to prepare.

This easy version can be made in a jiffy and it is a time-saver recipe when unexpected guests arrive. Here I have used bread instead of cottage cheese. I've also used custard powder along with whole milk to prepare the thickened milk known as ras, which certainly reduces the cooking time.

Whenever we crave something sweet and don't have much time to prepare, we turn to this recipe, which can satisfy our craving (almost) instantly. Nowadays, people are so busy that we're all looking for quick recipes. This mouthwatering sweet dish is sure to please everyone.

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 25 min
Yields: 4 servings


  • 4 cups + 3 teaspoons full-cream milk
  • 1 cup white or brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla custard powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • 4 slices bread (preferably white sandwich bread)


  1. In a large pan, add 4 cups of milk and bring it to a boil over high flame.
  2. When the milk starts boiling, stir occasionally and add sugar, turning the flame to low.
  3. In a bowl, add the vanilla custard powder and 3 teaspoons of milk. Mix it well.
  4. Add the vanilla custard mixture to the boiling milk and stir from the bottom of the pan so that the milk doesn't burn.
  5. Stir the gathering of cream to the sides of pan for 4-5 minutes or till the milk reduces to one-third, so that it doesn't stick on the sides.
  6. Add the cardamom powder and stir the milk for about 1 minute.
  7. Remove the pan from the flame and transfer the mixture to a bowl. Allow it to cool (in the refrigerator is ok).
  8. Take the bread and cut it into round pieces with the help of a cutter or a glass.
  9. Dip both the sides of the bread pieces into the cooled milk mixture. Place each coated pieces of bread on a plate. When all of the coated pieces of bread have been arranged on the plate, pour an additional 2-3 teaspoons of milk on top.
  10. Garnish with pistachios.
  11. Serve bread rasmalai chilled.


Some important tips for a perfect bread rasamlai:

  • Always use fresh bread for this recipe. Stale bread may turn soggy and dissolve in the milk.
  • If you do not wish to use custard powder, add condensed milk instead. You can also use evaporated milk.
  • Do not keep the bread in thickened milk for a long time because the bread tends to get mushy. Wait to add the bread until just before serving.
