If you’re an Indian following a Keto diet, you may have been missing the beloved dessert Rasmalai. But fret not, because Keto Rasmalai is here to satisfy your cravings and make you feel included in festive celebrations.
The Keto version of this famous Indian sweet aims to replicate the flavors and textures of the original recipe. And can be made on Indian festivals, or special occasions.
While it’s ideal to prepare the cottage cheese or paneer at home, you can also find it in supermarkets if needed. Remember to serve this delightful dessert chilled for the best experience. Rasmalai is loved by people of all ages and backgrounds, making it a perfect treat for special occasions.
Ras Malai, originally known as Rosomalai, or Roshmalai, is a dessert from the Indian subcontinent. The dessert is called Roshmalai/Rosmalai in Bengali, Ras Malai in Hindi, and Rasa Malei in Odia. It is popular in India, Bangladesh and Pakistan — Wikipedia.
To sweeten the Keto Rasmalai, you can use either Stevia or Erythritol. Personally, I prefer using Stevia from the Sugar-free brand, as it doesn’t leave any aftertaste. So, let’s dive into the recipe and get started! Keep this one bookmarked for your next weekend culinary adventure.
