Ras malai, also known as Rossomalai , is a dessert of the sub-continent especially. It has been described in the west as “a rich cheesecake without a crust”. It is considered to be a variation of the rasgulla in which syrup is replaced with thick milk in it.

According to wikipedia the origin of this dish is believed to be of Bengal and is invented by Krishna Chandra although This news is just a claim by the K.C Das Grandsons and is said to be ‘impossible to verify’.

It is my favorite dessert. As a kid I wasn’t very fond of sweets but Ras malai was the only one I liked. It is a royal sweet often served in weddings and eaten on special occasions especially of Eid or other functions.

This recipe is a sweet, traditional dessert that is very popular in Pakistan. It is made with dry milk, eggs, baking powder, green cardamom, pistachio some almonds, milk, and sugar. Ras malai balls are prepared and dipped in creamy milk flavored with cardamom powder which gives it a very delicious taste. This delicious dessert recipe tastes best when served chilled. It’s served with thickened milk along. Garnishing of almonds and pistachios, makes it look divine and tasty.

‘Ras’ means juice, and ‘Malai’ means cream in Urdu. The word malai is derived from the Persian word balai which means cream of milk. It is an Eid special dessert made with sugary white cream. It is cooked in sugar syrup and milk with tasty saffron and pistachios. It is popular in many foreign countries; you can serve them after dinner. Serve this sweet dish chilled for better taste.
