Basundi

This is a rich milk based dessert. This is usually prepared by reducing milk and garnishing with roughly chopped nuts. Here instead of chopped nuts, I coarsely ground almonds and combined with the reduced milk. This gave a good texture and a delicious taste.


Ingredients :

1. Whole Milk - 1 litre
2. Sugar - 1 Cup or Adjust to your taste
3. Almond - 1 tbs 
4. Saffron - A Few Strands
5. Cardamom Powder - 1/2 tsp



Procedure :

1. Soak almond over night. Remove skin and grind coarsely.

2. Combine milk and sugar. Bring to boil. Medium the flame.Stir occasionally.

3. Boil till milk reduces to half the quantity.

4. Add ground almond, cardamom and saffron strands.

5. Stir once. Switch off the stove.

6. Let the contents cool.

7. Refrigerate and serve chilled.
