Homemade Rasmalai | Bengali Sweet | Deepavali Sweet

Rasmalai, a delicious indian sweet/dessert made from the indian cottage cheese soaked in thickened & flavored milk(Rabri). Rasmalai is ST's favorite sweet, when we were in Bangalore, he bought it often from the little sweet stall on the way back to home from the office. The taste of that rasmalai was heaven, literally melt in mouth and the rabri was so flavorful with lots of nuts and saffron. To this day, i never seen him buying any other sweets on his own except rasmalai, that really motivates me to try my hands on this delicious bengali sweet. After a few attempts, i nailed the recipe, it turned out as delicious as i would expected and even ST gives a big thumbs up for every time i make. Now this is one of the our favorite sweets to make at home for every special occasion. 

Rasmalai can be very easily made from the rasgolla, have heard from friends that even haldiram's rasgolla is best for making rasmalai, but i haven't tried it so far, always make my own rasgolla. If you make everything from the start to finish on one day, you make find it tiresome, so i always make the rasgolla on the first day and let it soak in syrup for atleast a day in the refrigerator and then the next day, i will make the rasmalai. So if you have plan to make them from the scratch, that tip might be helpful.
