Ricotta Rasmalai


I started cooking much more and looking for quick and easy recipes soon after I moved to the US, 40 something years ago! One of the easiest dessert recipes I came across back then was Rasmali made with ricotta cheese.  I’ve found that it is easy to pair with Indian or Western food.

It’s a simple summer dessert as it is light and also delicious with strawberries, blueberries or peaches. Depending on your preference you can vary the amount of sugar that you use.  It is also a great recipe to make in advance as it is best eaten chilled.
