Easy and delicious rasmalai recipe for Diwali

Easy rasmalai recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. in essence rasmalai literally means juicy milk cream. this is prepared very similar to rasgulla but served with thick creamed milk flavoured with kesar. also, it is topped with choice of dry fruits including pista, kaju and badam before serving.

while i am not a big fan of sweet dessert recipes. but my husband has always been a big admire of indian dessert recipes. perhaps he developed this taste for creamy based sweets during his stay in west bengal. as a matter of fact, he is so much addicted to sweets that he needs a dessert shot immediately after meal. rasmali is one such dessert which we prepare quite often. more importantly, the biggest advantage of this recipe is it lasts long for weeks if stored in fridge. also, the paneer balls can either be served as rasgulla if served with sugar syrup. and as rasmalai if served with milk cream.
