Mango Condensed Milk Souffle

With the holiday season around the corner, this soufflé is the perfect dessert for parties since it’s easy, delicious, and you can prepare it ahead of time.

In addition to Indian and Mexican grocery stores, you can find canned mango pulp in regular supermarkets as well.

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.
