Subject:Rasmalai fusion?
Time:09:22 am
Current Mood:creative
Hello, I'm new here. So glad to see there's a community like this...I really do LOVE naan!

My school has a baking competition coming up that I'm entering (it's law school versus med school...go law students!) and I'm wondering if anyone has any input for ideas? Something simple and makes little portions (like the size of cupcakes) that can be made the day before but still taste great the next day..?

I was thinking about doing a "fusion"-type recipe, with a play on rasmalai. I just moved to a new place so I'm not sure if I can get paneer here, but I think I'd be able to get ricotta to make the rasmalai balls. I was thinking about flattening them a little bit and then creating a dessert from them using them as a base. I can't decide what to put on top, though. Some ideas: chocolate and white chocolate? Custard and fruit? I also don't know if I should keep the cardamom or use something else instead, like vanilla or cinnamon. Any ideas would be most welcome!

I'm afraid this community hasn't been very active.

Having said that: what about a rosewater flavoring and candied rose petals (assuming you can get them) on top? Or minced candied ginger?

Hmm, I like the rose idea...I have a Whole Foods here, I wonder if they'd have the rosewater flavoring and candied rose petals...?

one of the best things about rasmalai, to me, is that they have soaked up the milk so are soft and spongy. Also the coldness. Without any liquid it might be awfully hard to choke down.

That's definitely true, I didn't think about that. Unfortunately, I don't know how to make the milk "sauce" that goes with the rasmalai...I wonder if I can soak the rasmalai in sweetened milk (maybe sweetened condensed milk) before adding anything on top of them...?
