Surprising, refreshing and beautiful... this Indian dessert is perfect for a hot, sweltering summer. Though the result is exotic, the ingredients are not and most are easy to find at your local grocery store.
I tasted this dessert for the first time at a party in the home of my husband's Indian colleague and was immediately taken by the delicate taste and texture. I had forgotten this discovery until a roundabout google search for a Thai soup recipe inexplicably landed me on a Rasgulla recipe. Click, click, click... I was getting into trouble quickly learning various techniques. And in under an hour I had my first successful batch cooling in the fridge.
I had already made ricotta cheese at home, so making paneer for the first half of this recipe was easy - it's the exact same process with slightly different ingredients and timing!
