Ras malai or Rasha Malai is a dessert eaten in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh . The name ras malai comes from two words in Hindi: ras, meaning "juice", and malai, meaning "cream". It has been described as "a rich cheesecake without a crust." [1 ] [2 ]
Ingredients [ edit ]
Ras malai consists of sugary white cream, or yellow-coloured (or flattened) balls of
paneer soaked in malai ( clotted cream) flavoured with cardamom. [3 ]
Homemade ras malai is usually made from powdered milk, all-purpose flour, baking powder and oil, which are kneaded to form a dough, moulded into balls, and dropped into simmering milk cream.
Ras malai is believed to have originated in
Odisha. It is one of the most famous desserts in that region and is likely based on the [4 ] rasgulla, which is a close variation.
