Ever since I made rasgulla at home,I have been wanting to try rasmalai.I never knew making rasgulla would be that easy before I tried and I was able to prepare good rasgullas I knew making rasmalai will be really easy.Rasmalai is sinful rich Bengali treat where soft and juicy rasgullas are simmered in thickened sweetened milk and the result is...absolutely irresistible rasmalai. It is a sheer bliss to taste a perfectly made rasmalai and tryst me you will loose your count when you start gobbling :). Recently I tried this and I am really happy I did.It was such a treat :). I used condensed milk along with milk,I am not sure if they use condensed milk in authentic version but we liked this very much.I made around 12 and it was all gone in minutes :). If you don't have the time to make rasgullas from scratch at home you can use store bought ones too.But home made ones are way better in softness and taste.Go ahead and make this for your next party/special occasion and your guests will be pleased.
