Ras Malai

Today I prepared Rasmalai, very famous, rich and yumm in taste, sweet in India, especially Bengal region. Under this recipe, we prepared malai with homemade chenna or paneer and ras with thick consistency milk and serve together with lots of nuts and cardamom powder in one bowl. It’s color light yellow look so pretty and very attractive.
Ras Malai or Rosh malai is a sweet dessert originating in Eastern India and popular throughout the Indian subcontinent is served after a meal. It is popular throughout South Asia. The name Ras Malai comes from two parts in Hindi: Ras, which means Juice/Juicy, and Malai, which means cream. This time in Blogging marathon #23, for Traditional Dish, I choose ras malai, hope everyone like it.
