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!
Raw food Tim Tams! - My son wouldn't agree, but for me this is the closest I've come since being raw to that choc-covered biscuit slice with the fudgy innards that - despite being so bad for me - used to taste great savoured with a glass of icy milk.
The resemblance came in the way that, when I nibbled the truffle in between small sips of water, the chia filling literally meltied into the mouth ..... um maybe you had to be there.
This was a recipe that I wasn't expecting to be a keeper so the measurements are approximate.
