Rasmalai is made of two words Ras+Malai.. It is one of the famous Bengali Sweet and one of my favorite dish as well. Also known as royal dish which mainly served in weddings and on a special occasion. It is served as small, soft, and spongy cotton cheese balls that are keep in creamy keasar milk.

This is popular Bengali dessert, also known as Rossomoloi. It takes long time to prepare traditional way this recipe needs some patience. If we use cow milk for making this recipe it give us better result. I have made it with normal fresh milk and it comes out great.
