A easy and simple milk based dessert that can be anyone’s favourite.I love to treat myself with this sweet whenever I could. Though one should think about the amount of refined  sugar that gets into the sweet ,treating ourselves with this kind of delicious sweet once in a while is  “No Harm” .Always our Indian Based desserts are much nutritious when compared to western desserts which come with empty calories.Than grabbing pastries for birthday and celebrations ,why not indian desserts,which is full of nutrition? Never say “No” for this Rasmalai , as it contains good protein and fats from milk and nuts. Though eating Sweets regularly is not good for health,because of refined sugar used in making of sweets,but can always indulge occasionally to satisfy your sweet tooth cravings….,eating in moderation is the only key to stay fit in spite of  eating anything of your choice.
