What makes Rasmalai healthy?

It is made purely from dairy products and even diabetes patients can eat low sugar or no sugar rasmalai once in a while. Moreover, mangoes are there in this recipe and they are rich in antioxidants and low in calories.

Pro tips for mango rasmalai

  1. Make sure to stir the milk at regular intervals or it might stick to the bottom.
  2. Make sure to add mango puree after the milk is cooled down completely. Adding mango puree to hot milk might spoil it.
  3. Adjust the quantity of sugar according to your preference.
  4. You can use any kind of mangoes in this recipe like alphonso, dasheri, safeda etc.
