Quick Rasmalai with baked ricotta cheese

I got this recipe from here, tried it out & it was delicious.


Ricotta cheese – 2 packs / 2 cups

Sugar – 9 tbsp + 2 tbsp

Milk – 2 cups

Powdered cardamom – 1/4 tsp

Saffron strands – a few

Sliced almonds – 2 tbsp

Sliced pistachios – 2 tbsp


Preheat the oven to 180C.

Combine the cheese & 9 tbsp of sugar in a medium mixing bowl; beat well with an electric mixer till you feel no grains of sugar. Transfer mixture to a greased square baking tin & bake at 180C for 40- 45 minutes/ till a knife inserted into the center of the cheese comes out clean.

Let it cool slighly. Cut into squares/ desired shapes. Boil 2 cups of milk, cook on low heat till it reduces to 1 cup. Add 2 tbsp of sugar.  Add the powdered cardamom & the saffron strands; remove from heat.

Let the milk cool slightly, pour it over the ricotta pieces. Add the sliced nuts & mix. Refrigerate till you serve.
