Rasmalai : Ricotta In Sweet Coconut Milk With Pistachio & Almond #SundaySupper


This week my Sunday Supper team has a ‘celebrate your heritage’ theme. Awesome!! Recipe bloggers from all over the world are sharing their favorite recipes from their culture. I have sooo many Indian dishes that I love, it was a difficult choice – but I finally decided to make Rasmalai, a creamy cheese dessert soaking in a milk-nut syrup. So yummy!! Here’s my own spin for a super-healthy version! I used  ricotta cheese. I also used coconut milk instead of the traditional condensed milk or the half and half that is normally used for rasmalai. Coconut milk has healthy fat which makes a rich creamy syrup that can rival condensed milk. I love coconut milk and use it in a lot of my recipes. I even wrote a post about it earlier. I added some almond paste to make the syrup even creamier, and substituted sugar with a mix of honey and brown sugar. That is one of the reasons my baked ricotta turned out a golden brown instead of white (as rasamalai usually does!) Top off with chopped pistachio and you’re in dessert heaven. Oh by the way, I also added some rose essence for that delish aroma !!.
