Ras Malai Interrupted – Cardamon Saffron Cake

Ras Malai Interrupted – Cardamon Saffron Cake

Happy New Year! I wish you all a joyful, prosperous and a deliciously sweet 2017. I’ve been away, traveling through Asia most of December and part of January. With that vacation comes rest and rejuvenation. It was much needed after the election,  and it was nice to get out of the country to see the world from a different point of view.

All my vacations are opportunities to experience the world through the culinary perspective, and this one was no exception. Our whirlwind tour of India gave us a small glimpse into the colorful culture of this spectacular country. Not only did we experience the splendor of northern India, the cuisine provided me with expansive inspiration for desserts. Indian desserts made properly are not sugary sweet like the ones we have in the US.
