Every year during Diwali, I wanted to share some Bengali sweets.This year too, I tried Rasgolla recipe at home but it din’t turn up as I expected. It came out soft, spongy but became little bit flat after taking out from the sugar syrup. So I am planning to try it again by correcting my mistakes. I hope I could make a perfect rasgolla very soon and share it in my space. As I had rasgolla, I wanted to make a rich dessert recipe with it. What else other than this yummy rasmalai recipe.Traditional, authentic rasmalai calls for boiling milk & sugar for hours. But this is an easy, instant recipe with just 2 major ingredients.I had some store bought condensed milk in hand. So I made it quickly under 10 minutes. If you have store bought or homemade left over rasagolla, you can make this rich, creamy, yummilicious Indian dessert with milk in the next few minutes. I guess milk powder also works well instead of condensed milk. Friends, Do include this easy sweet recipe in your Diwali 2016 menu and have a great celebration ! Lets see how to make this easy peasy Bengali delicacy, Rasmalai recipe at home with step by step photos !
