Quick and Simple Basundi

My husband just loves Basundi. People used to tell me it is difficult to make. Even my mom has not tried making it. Someone told me this simple recipe for what I think is one of the most delicious creation by human beings. There is a lot of effort but the procedure is simple.

Ingredients –

  • 1 litre full fat milk
  • 2 cups sugar
  • dry fruits (optional)
  • Kesar optional

How to make –

  1. Pour milk (1 litre full fat milk) in a thick bottomed sauce pan or kadai.
  2. Keep stirring on low flame and stir till it thickens
  3. Once it thickens slightly add sugar and keep stirring.
  4. You will have to stir often so that it does not stick to the bottom. Milk also has a tendency to turn brown or burn.
  5. Let it thicken. There will be milk solid stuck to the vessels. Scrape it and put it back in the basundi mixture.
  6. Add dry fruits if you wish. I like it plain.

Honestly, I got a little tired of the stirring, so don’t go by the picture. But it had a homely taste to it, so it was lovely anyway. For correct reference of how it should look. refer some pictures on the internet.
