Easiest Rasmalai using Milk Powder

A dish which initially originated in the Bengal regions of India, it’s a well-loved milky dessert that can be described as a spongey cheese dumpling and can be compared to a milk cake due to it’s texture, although I personally think these are slightly better.

The traditional Rasmalai recipe can be a bit tricky and take hours to prepare. This recipe is a hack to create the same quality Rasmalai, by making the rasmalai dough with a good quality milk powder (such as Nido Fortified Milk Powder) and it takes less than an hour to get them ready.

According to the stats and all the pictures I’ve received from my followers recreating this, I can safely say that this is one of the most loved recipes on my blog right now.
