- 2 tablespoons crushed almonds

- Heat milk in a large pan until it begins to boil.
- Add lemon juice and wait till the curds are formed. Keep cooking with constant stirring for about 15 more minutes until the curds stop forming.
- Drain out the curd in a colander with muslin cloth and leave for about 5 minutes until all the extra water is drained off. Now hold the cloth and seal the curd inside and squeeze tightly so that every single drop comes out of it. You can also set it under a pan or heavy dish for 15 to 20 minutes to drain out extra water.
- If you want to check the perfection of paneer (curd) take little in your hand and kneed in your palm for 10 seconds, if the paneer comes out clear powder like then its perfect to use and if it leaves water in your hand then you should place it under a dish or pan to squeeze out extra water.
- Take the paner in a large bowl and kneed for about 10 minutes until a fine mixture then make small balls without cracks then press a little at the centre to make a flat ball. Set aside.
- Now add sugar in 3 cups of water and bring to boil. When the sugar is fully dissolved, add the rasmalai patties (curd balls) into the boiling sugar mixture, cover the lid and cook for about 20 minutes at high. The pan should be big enough as the patties puff up after few minutes.
- Take out the rasmalai patties from the water and press a little to squeeze out extra water. Set aside in a dish.
- Now take another pan and add milk, cook until reduced to half then add sugar and cardamom and cook for 5 to 7 minutes again with constant stirring.
- When ready pour the milk in a dish and place the rasmalai patties in that milk mixture and garnish with crushed almonds and pistachios. Place in the refrigerator for about 2 to 3 hours and serve chilled.
