Ras malai or rossomalai. is a sweetmeat consumed mainly in India, as well as in Pakistan and Bangladesh. The name ras malai comes from two words in Hindi: ras, meaning "juice", and malai, meaning "cream". It has been described as "a rich cheesecake without a crust." This dish was invented by the Bengali sweetmeat confectioner and businessman K.C. Das in the year 1930. I being a Bengali was inborn blessed with sweet tooth and among many sweets in my fav list.
