Instant Bread Rasmalai

Love having rasmalai, you'll love this easiest recipe which will transport you to the rasmalai heaven. A little history, rasmalai was first made by a Bangladeshi Sweet Master in the late 1800’s by soaking spongy confections made out of chena(milk curds) and dowsed into flavoured milk which was typically made with lots of saffron and cardamom and sold in large quantities during the months of Diwali. Here I have made with bread and filled it with milk curds and mixed nuts for that creamy melt in your mouth texture and it is dowsed in sweet saffron and cardamom milk, topped with pistachios, dried rose petals and saffron. It is an absolute crowd pleaser! This has the warmth, aroma and floral notes and is perfect for Diwali gatherings or early holiday gatherings.
