Today, I prepared Basundi Sweet & it came out  really well.  Everyone loved its scrumptious, creamy & rich taste..:))
The recipe is just too good…try this sumptuous dessert at your home for your loved ones today...!
  • Whole Milk                    - 1 litre
  • Saffron                         - a pinch
  • Cashews chopped         - 1 tbsp
  • Almonds chopped         - 1 tbsp
  • Nutmeg pwd                 - a pinch
  • Cardamom pwd             - ¼ tsp
  • Lemon juice                  - 1 tsp
  • Sugar                           - 5 tbsp or to taste
  1. Take whole milk in a wide pan.
  1. Make sure the pan is thick bottomed, as we’re going to reduce the milk to half its content.
  1. Boil the milk in medium flame on stove top with continous stirring.
  1. Continuously scrape the sides and bottom of the pan to ensure the milk doesn’t stick to the pan.
  1. Stir the milk continuously.
  1. Once the milk is reduced to half its consistency, add few shreds of saffron

  1. This imparts rich color & flavor to basundi.
  1. Slice cashew & almonds to fine pieces.
  1. Add this nuts to the thick milk mixture.
  1. Stir well
  1. Further cook for 2 to 3 mins.
  1. Add nutmeg pwd and cardamom pwd. ( this enhances very rich flavor )
  1. Keep cooking this on low flame
  1. To get the grainy texture of basundi, we’re going to add 4 to 5 drops of fresh lime juice. ( take care not to add,  too much drops of lime juice, as it curdles milk…we just need grainy texture )
  1. Mix it well.
  1. Now you can see milk is attaining grainy consistency
  1. Add sugar and combine. Turn off the flame.
  2. Now delicious basundi is ready.  ( It attains thicker consistency on cooling )
  1. Serve basundi warm or chilled with grated pistachios & almond nuts garnishing.  ( it tastes so great, when it is cold )
  1. Enjoy creamy & thick home made Basundi ..:)

    thanks a ton for posting such a nice item. Could u please tell me how u gt the yellow colour shd v add any flavour??

  43. Hy Nivas,
    Thanks for the inspiring feedback. The yellow color imparted in basundi is from the addition of saffron strands. You can add few drops of almond essence for added flavor. Do try n lemme know.

  44. awesome..awesome..awesome...
