Basundi is one of famous sweets prepared in India, and I am assuming, it is prepared mostly, kinda a ritual in the Maharashtra, N Karnataka & Gujarat. The process involves condensing the milk and then adding sugar, cardamom, and dry fruits. If need to make it quickly then use cans of condensed milk.
3 Cups Milk (preferably whole milk)
1/3 cup khoya/khova (milk solids)
1/3 cup sugar
4 green cardamoms, powdered
2 tbsp dry fruits
- Boil the milk in a deep, heavy bottom vessel. Boil the milk with continuous stirring till it almost reduces to half.
- Add khoya, sugar, cardamom powder, dry fruits and give a stir.
- Remove from heat
- Serve hot or warm with puri or chilled for a dessert
Prep Time: 25 – 30 mins
Variation: Add fruits to make the fruity version of basundi
Note: To reduce the preparation time, use condensed milk.
