Take 5 litre pressure cooker or pan and put salt into it. Place a stand and cover the pan or pressure cooker with the lid and let the salt heated on medium low flame for 8-10 minutes. Meanwhile let’s prepare the batter.
To make basic sponge:
In a mixing bowl shift all purpose flour, baking powder and soda. Mix all the dry ingredients very well.
Take another bowl add curd and oil. Whisk till curd and oil gets emulsify.
Now add powdered sugar and mix it well.
Add dry mixture into the bowl of wet mixture and whisk it well till no lumps.
Lastly add rose water, cardamom powder and mix it well to make smooth batter. If required add milk to make medium thick consistency.
Batter is ready.
Take aluminium tin and grease the tin with butter or oil, sprinkle all purpose flour and dust the tin all around. Remove excess flour.
Pour prepared into the dusted tin, tap the tin so that batter spreads evenly and put the cake tin inside the pressure cooker or pan onto stand.
Cover the lid and bake the cake for 35-40 minutes or until done. If using pressure cooker make sure to remove the whistle.
After 20 minutes uncovered the lid and do check the cake. If the heat is too much and cake is getting brown from top and still unbaked from inside then keep the flame low.
Once baked, uncovered the lid and take out the cake tin from the pan/pressure cooker and let the cake cool down for sometime.
After few minutes scratch the sides and take out the cake from the tin. Let the cake cool down completely before icing.
To make milk syrup:
Put milk, sugar in a pan and bring it to boil.
Once boiled, switch of the flame and let it cool down for sometime.
Add cardamom powder, saffron rose water, few drops of yellow colour and mix it well
Milk syrup is ready.
For Rasmalai frosting:
Put heavy whipping cream in a bowl and beat till it becomes soft peaks.
Now add saffron rose water, cardamom powder and beat till stiff peaks form.
To make rasmalai cake:
Take basic sponge and cut horizontally into three equal layers with the help of serrated knife.
Put one layer of the cake onto the cake base and soak with milk syrup. Soak till the layer becomes very soft and juicy as rasmalai cake should be very soft and juicy.
Now put rasmalai frosting on top of the cake and spread it evenly with the help of palette knife. Sprinkle some edible flowers all around.
Now take second layer of the cake and put over the layer of rasmalai frosting, soak with milk syrup, spread rasmalai frosting and sprinkle some edible flowers.
Now take the last layer and soak with milk syrup and cover with rasmalai frosting. Cover the sides and top with rasmalai frosting and smoothen it with the help of scrapper.
