Ever knew your little effort of cooking this Keto Rasmalai (Keto Indian Dessert ) can be less than 1g net carb per serving unlike the traditional carb loaded ones ? Too good to be true, right ? And let me tell you, this is not even compromise in taste unlike some of the keto copycat recipes you find on internet.
The recipe is very much straightforward and the video below makes the process very easy to understand. Though, refer the recipe notes below to after watching the video.
What is Rasmalai ? How different is Keto Rasmalai ?
If you are not an Indian, and unfamiliar with this dessert- you have to know what is Keto Rasmalai. Also, it is very likely that you will make this dish only when you know what it is about and what to expect ? So, traditional Rasmalai recipe is made from paneer (as we are making it too in the keto version ) and is soaked in a sugar loaded rabdi. Rabdi is nothing but reduced and condensed milk with some cardamom. (Bdw, we also have Keto Rabdi made in 2 ways , and if you are wondering what it is- check those out. (Rabdi 1.0 and Rabdi 2.0 )
And the good news is- Where one serving of traditional Rasmalai must be around 10-30g net, this is as low as 0.9g net 😛 Do the math. Well, I am planning to have 10 of these in one go after I break an extended fast ( I usually do 48 -72 hr long fasts once a month) and guess what – I won’t even regret a single moment of it. Haha !
So is it worth the effort you will need to make the Keto Rasmalai ?
Since you have asked this, I will be blunt. Every recipe on this blog is exclusively made for people wanting to revolutionize their way of eating. For the healthy options to replace the bad habits, for less insulin spikes, for less blood pressure, for low cholesterol , for those special occasions, for those pick-me-ups, for that keto party you have organized for the non-keto folks, for the love of food, and yes- for you.
Why do you think big and respected Keto Bloggers like Martina of Ketodietapp.com , Carolyn of Fooddreamer, or Lisa of Lowcarbyum take so many pains to come up with new ideas and recipes ? It is not about money, trust me. The time one invests in blogging, especially food bloggers, fitness bloggers is not always about the money. Any good honest blogger will approve of this. For a blogger, even if one person could make his/her recipe and could manage his/her day without resorting to bad eating habits, is a win. You cannot imagine how it feels.
So, since I started blogging and meeting more people, my message has been very straightforward.
Take Some Time out To Cook !!
Cooking will not only make sure you are eating healthy,
cooking actually calms your mind.
You need not be an expert, but your effort will add
a brownie point to your self-love diary.
Also, Rasmalai is freaking BAE, SO MAKE IT :p
What will you need ?
♥Homemade paneer/ cottage cheese preferable . ( Options- Store bought preferably from a dairy wala works too, do not buy the paneer you get in packets. Your paneer balls can break when you boil them. )
♥Cardamom – USP of any Indian Dessert
♥Keto condensed Milk– This recipe is made from heavy cream and is exact copycat of the condensed milk you get in the market ( see the recipe notes below the recipe)
♥Note before making the Keto Rasmalai ♥
You have to knead the paneer exactly for 10 minutes. Nothing less or more than that. Do not miss this step or rush it.
