Origins of the Rasamalai
It is a sweet dish that has its origins in Bengal. It mainly acts as an inspiration for the Rasamalai Chocolate. However, it is not just Bengal, but Odisha, which gives odd flavours to the dish. Bangladesh is also fighting for the GI tag, as some Comilla sweet makers believe that they invented the dish.
You must be wondering what this is made from. Rasamalai mainly consists of flattened cottage cheese balls flavoured with milk cream. A few drops of vinegar and lime juice is added to a bowl full of milk. Then whey is added. Then the milk solids separate. Sweet makers knead these milk solids and make a dough out of them. The dough is then divided into very small balls. They are cooked in hot water, with rose water. The balls are then cooked in milk with pistachios, saffron, and kheer. With time, many different states in India have started experimenting with the age-old recipe in their way.
What about the Chocolate?
The new-age bakers and chefs have started incorporating the flavours of sweetmeats into chocolates. It is huge experimentation that can lead to flavourful returns. You can now get the same feel as you would get from the dessert. Moreover, chocolates are known to make your mood good, with the release of endorphins. So, it becomes a lethal combination.
