ABOUT Marbel Rasmalai RECIPE

Rasmalai or 'Rosomalai'(in bengali )is a very popular  Bengali  sweet, now it is also popular  in through out the India  also in Pakistan  and Bangladesh.  In Rasmalai, flat shaped spongy rasgullas or dumpling made with paneer  or cottage or ricotta cheese  soaked in sweet, thickened, chilled and saffron flavored milk. Today I made Marbel Rasmalai using Hershey's chocolate syrup .. .I mixed Hershey's chocolate syrup with half of the chena or paneer and made Marbel Rasgulla.it was so moist. .soft...you will get the chocolaty taste along with the taste of original rasgullas in one bite.
