Ras Malai – Recipe

Last Saturday, I had invited my eight months pregnant friend over for dinner. When inquired about her cravings, she replied that she desperately craves for sweets. I wanted to make some special dessert for her and decided to make ras-malai. Ras Malai is a Bengali sweet – primarily comprising of two main ingredients – where “ras” means juice, and “malai” means cream. It is a widely known dessert in India and Pakistan. She absolutely relished the ras-malai and went for second helping too! πŸ™‚

Recipe is fairly simple. Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients:

Ricotta Cheese – 15 oz or 1 box

Powdered Sugar – 3/4 cup

Cardamom – 4Β Β pieces – powdered

Whole milk – 3 cups

Condensed milk – 1 cup

Saffron – a pinch

Almonds & Pistachio – chopped, grounded for granishing
