Rasmalai is basically the Ras + Malai. Ras is the liquid and malai is the round patties that we soak inside the ras.
For malai, refer the recipe for rasagulla. Make the rasagulla and instead of making them as round balls, press the balls slightly and pat it round (like pedas) and pressure them in the sugar water. Once done, squeeze the malai gently to dry out excess sugar water and set this aside.
