Joy of making Desserts-Rasgullas in Vanilla Ice-Cream!

So, you too like to eat Ice-creams? Oh, so yummy they taste! And what’s your favorite flavor? Chocolate, Mango, Vanilla, Strawberry, Blackcurrant, Pista, Litchi, the choice is yours. Or just garnish the vanilla ice-cream with topping of your choice. It is rightly said, ‘a little vanilla goes a long way.’

There are many flavors available in ice-creams. My personal favorite is vanilla. Not because it’s plain vanilla but because I can flavor it as per my taste. You can do wonders with the plain, white looking vanilla ice-cream. Sprinkle crunchy little dry fruits or just decorate your bowl of vanilla ice-cream with fresh fruits. Sauce it up with fresh juicy pulps, honey or chocolate pieces or mix a scoop in a glass of chilled coffee.

The joy of making desserts is magical. And you don’t even have to put-in any extra efforts to make this dessert, Rasgullas in Vanilla Ice-Cream.
