Indian sweets are unique in their taste and design. Most of them are milk or cheese based and adorned with different types of nuts. They are usually very sweet and rich in taste. One of my all time favorites is Rasmalai. It is typically made with homemade cheese then shaped into circles and soaked in sweet milk. Today, one of the most popular variations is one that had been made with ricotta cheese. The ricotta is seasoned with ground cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, and vanilla, then baked to remove all the moisture, cut into pieces, and soaked in a sweet milk. The milk is a mixture of condensed milk, whole milk, and evaporated milk.
I got this recipe from my mom. My mom is an amazing cook and has a unique touch in the kitchen. When I made this dessert it truly made me feel as though I was eating my mom’s rasmalai. This dessert is easy to make and will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth.
Last night my school hosted the Black Jack Ball which is a formal event where everyone gets dressed up, has a nice dinner, and plays various casino games at the event. This year a few of us decided not to go, we termed ourselves, the Anti-Black Jack Ball crew. Instead we decided to have a potluck where everyone would cook an Indian dish and meet at one person’s house. Being that this was my first time making rasmalai, I was really nervous about it turning out the way I wanted. The verdict was that everyone loved it! This was easy and tasty, one that I will definitely be making again!
