Rasmalai

Ras Malai (Hindi: रस मलाई; Urdu: رس ملائی‎; Template:Lang-pnb) or Rosh malai (Bengali: রস মালাই) is a sweet dessert originating in India.[1] Is served after a meal. The name Ras Malai comes from two parts in Hindi: "Ras" meaning "juice/juicy" and "Malai", meaning "cream".

Ingredients

Ras Malai consists of sugary white, cream or yellow coloured balls (or flattened balls) of paneer soaked in malai (clotted cream) flavoured with cardamom.[2] Homemade Ras Malai is usually made up of powdered milk, all-purpose flour, baking powder and oil; kneaded to form a dough, moulded into balls and dropped into simmering milk cream. Flour is not commonly used in traditional Ras Malai cooking.

Origin

Rasmalai originated in West Bengal. It is one of the most famous desserts in West Bengal.[3] and is likely based on the rasgulla, which is a close variation.
