And we continue eating.....
I made this Bengali sweet for the first time. I used to buy it, but now there is no place near me where I can find it.....it is delicious
Bengali Malai Chop
250 grams of ricotta well drained. I place it in a kitchen towel, and dried it very well.
3 tablespoons of flour
for the syrup
1.5 cups of sugar
3 cups of water
1 cardamom crushed
few drops of rose water
Boil everything until the sugar is dissolved.
Mix and knead very well the ricotta with the flour for at least 7 minutes; thus, you avoid cracks when cooking them. Make a roll and cut them in pieces. Shape them in oval.
Boil them in the syrup for 7 minutes each side at medium high heat. Turn it off, and leave them in the syrup for 1 hour.
The filling is usually a saffron cream. However, I had some leftover of pistachio filling from another pastry (pista kaju roll). I made some vanilla custard, and mix it with the pistachio and made my sweet. ENJOY!
I made again Pista Kaju roll we love it!
and of course....we love Rasmalai
