Recipe Directions

Milk:

Place all milk ingredients in a blender, and add water until total volume is just over 2 cups. Blend it all together.

Rusgulas (balls):

In a food processor, grind down 1 handful of cashews and 1 handful of almonds into a fine powder. Again using a food processor, grind down the other handful of cashews and almonds into small granules. In a large bowl, mix ground nuts with dates by hand until evenly distributed. Add 2 tablespoons of the milk into the mix and mash further. Next, shape the mix into 1 1/2 inch diameter saucers, and set aside.

Finally, place the rusgulas in a bowl, and pour the milk over them. Allow everything to sit for 7-8 hours so the rusgulas soak up the flavor from the milk and soften. Before serving, top with crushed pistachios.

Now go make yourself some!

Well, after 2 weeks of slaving away at school, I’m finally catching a break. To enjoy this little break, I decided to make myself one of the treats that I’ve been missing most after coming back from India. It’s a dessert called rasmalai (literally meaning the “juice of cream”). Traditionally, rasmalai is a pretty labor intensive dish to make, but you all know how much disdain I have for long preparation times. So this is pretty much as simple as it gets. No muss, no fuss, just a delicious dessert for everybody to enjoy. Even my dad (a general anti-raw guy), gave me a wide-eyes “Wow” when he ate these. So try it out, and tell me what you think!

If you can find soft dates, theres no need to do any processing. Just mush them into the cashew/almond pieces by hand. If your dates are too hard/dry, I would suggest soaking them for a few hours in water so they soften up.

Hope you like it!

Hi Roshi, I have a question about the dates. How do you process them for mixing with the nuts? Do you chop them into small pieces, or process them in the food processor, or use some other method? Thank you!

AWESOME!!!!!!!! I was looking for more indian raw desserts like rasmalai. I will SO be making this! One question though, I have cardamom pods, are they the same as cardamom seeds? The ones with the tough, green outer coating? Thanks!

hmm, im sure mac nuts would work. possibly also pecans, though i doubt you'd get the same smooth texture. I'll add another comment if i think of anything else.
