Rasmalai is a Bengali Sweet.  Bengalis have a whole list of sweet dishes mostly made out of milk.  They are sweeter than most Indian delicacies. 

Rasmalai is not something that one can eat every day.  It is normally served at weddings.  This sweet is not difficult to make. 

Milk is boiled and then curdled adding a bit sour lime juice.  The water is then drained out.  What we get is called Paneer.  It is then properly mashed and balls are prepared.  These balls are then cooked in boiling sugar syrup till cooked. They  are then dipped in thickened milk  which is flavoured with saffron and cardamom.  The rasmalai is then chilled before serving.
