Ras Malai

This Indian dessert directly translates to “juice cream”, which may sound like an odd duo, but it’s surprisingly delicious. The main component in the dessert is chhana which is a form of cottage cheese. The chhana is submerged in condensed or reduced milk and then cooked with sugar syrup, saffron, and pistachios. The “juice” of this dessert comes from this sugar syrup mixture. This dessert is fitted for anyone with a sweet tooth and love for soft spongey textures.
