Ras Malai is a spongy and creamy delightful treat which is prepared with  fresh cheese called chhena. It is then cooked in sugar syrup and soaked in a cardamom-flavoured sweet milk  syrup which is known as rabdi. For serving and additional flavour, you can top it with almonds and pistachios. 

The top rank cheese dessert, Sernik, is made using egg, sugar, and twarog cheese. It is usually baked on a crumbly cake base and then topped with jelly and fruit.
