Pineapple Rasmalai

Indian sweets are really good. We call it "Mithai", it literally means sweet in Hindi. I am a big fan of Rasmalai since childhood. Rasmalai is a "chenna" based sweet. "Chenna" is quite similar to ricotta cheese. Its basically prepared with chenna and milk only but we have given traditional Rasmalai a twist with pineapple.
