    About this recipe: Ras Malai consists of cheese dumplings in cream sauce. This is a popular Indian dessert and takes a long time to prepare the traditional way. I came up with some shortcuts and ended up with this recipe which tastes exactly the same as traditional Ras Malai.

    Serves: 12 

    • 425g ricotta cheese
    • 4 tablespoons caster sugar
    • 350ml full fat milk
    • 350ml double cream
    • 200g caster sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
    • 1/2 teaspoon rose water (optional)
    • 1 pinch saffron
    • 1 tablespoon chopped blanched almonds
    • 2 teaspoons chopped pistachio nuts

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:55min 

    1. Preheat an oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
    2. Blend the ricotta cheese and 4 tbsp sugar together in a bowl with a hand mixer; divide the mixture between 12 muffin cups.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool in the tin for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack. Arrange the cheese balls onto a dessert platter.
    4. While the cheese bakes, pour the milk and cream into a saucepan and bring to a simmer over low heat; simmer 10 minutes. Stir 200g sugar, cardamom, rose water and saffron into the milk mixture and simmer another 2 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely. Drizzle the cooled mixture over the cheese balls. Sprinkle the almonds and pistachios over the cheese dumplings to serve.
