  • Cold butter - 1/2 cup
  • Powdered sugar - 2 tablespoon
  • salt- a pinch
  • Baking powder - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Ice cold water or milk -3-4 tablespoon

How to make Malai tartlets

  1. Keep aside some cashew nuts and raisins for garnishing. Slice the remaining of them as per your choice.
  2. Sieve the flour, baking powder, salt together. Then add the sugar, cold butter and ice-cold water/milk. Knead a hard dough.
  3. Wrap the dough with plastic wrapper and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  4. Heat milk and sugar in a pan. When it comes to the boiling point, keep aside 3-4 tablespoon of milk. Boil the remaining milk, keeping the flame medium low, till it reduces to 1 and 1/4 cups.
  5. Make a smooth paste of the rice powder and the milk kept aside. Add this paste into the boiling milk. Stir continuously and add the cardamom powder, chopped cashew nuts, raisins and essence.
  6. When the milk mixture thickens and reduces to 1/2 cup, turn off the flame. Let it cool down. Then mix it with the condensed milk. Pour it into a bowl and refrigerate it for 15 minutes.
  7. Preheat the oven at 200 degrees centigrade. Take out the dough and roll it out almost 1/4" thick. Cut into small roundels with a biscuit cutter.
  8. Press into small tart shells. Prick them with a fork all over. Now bake at 200 degrees centigrade for 35-30 minutes or till it turns into a nice golden color.
  9. Once the shells are ready, set it aside to cool them. Take out the malai filling.
  10. Fill this mixture into the tart shells and garnish with raisins and cashew nuts.
  11. Enjoy with the warm presence of your loved ones.

My Tip:

I do like to use skimmed milk mixed with two tablespoons of powdered milk instead of full cream milk.
