Like Rasgullas, Rasmalai is also made with homemade cheese known as “paneer” or “chenna”. Instead of being soaked in sugar syrup like Rasgullas, Rasmalai is soaked in sweet, flavored milk. At Indian weddings and other special occasions, Ras Malai is commonly served. Though rich in texture and flavor, it can be made easily at home. Indian sweets and desserts are well known world wide and are very tempting and mouth-watering.
Be it the scorching summer heat or chilling winter, Indian desserts are too difficult to resist and are certainly not to be missed. Ras malai is best when it is served chilled.
