Iyengar Basundhi / Rabri #sikandalouscuisine
This recipe is from Ramaa Shanker's Divine Soul Recipes - it's quite similar to what most of us make , only there was no vermicelli / rice in her recipe - which I adapted a bit and it came out delicious !
2 Liters Full Fat Milk.
1/2 Cup Sugar.
1/2 Teaspoon Cardamon Powder.
7-8 Strands Saffron- Soaked in some warm milk.
A Fistful of Pistachios & Blanched Almonds.
1/2 Teaspoon Chironji - I didn't add.
Some Ghee Sauted Vermicelli - This isnt a part of the recipe , but my kids like it so I added some.
Boil milk , after 15 minutes add in sugar and gently cook it another another 45 minutes on sim to desired consistency .Tip in saffron,vermicelli and half the nuts, simmered another 5-6 minutes . Take off heat after adding cardamom powder.Chilled the rabdi and serve it garnished with the remaining nuts.
