milk based desserts are a very popular recipe in india. but the milk basundi is hugely popular in gujarat, maharashtra and karnataka where it is served chilled with mixed nuts. moreover, it is also confused with the other popular milk-based dessert i.e rabdi or rabri recipe. but there is a slight difference between these 2 recipes. basically, the texture and consistency differ from each other. basundi sweet is thicker and requires more time to attain the consistency compared to rabdi recipe. moreover, the rabdi recipe is always served as a supplement to other sweet dishes, for example, rasmalai, malpua and shahi tukda recipe. whereas thick milk basundi is served as a main dish.

the recipe for basundi sweet is extremely simple yet some tips, recommendations and serving ideas for it. firstly, i always recommend using full cream milk for this recipe. comparatively lite milk contains less fat and would require more amount of milk for the same amount of basundi. secondly, do not forget to continuously stir and scratch the sides while boiling the milk. also, make sure to boil it on a low to medium heat or otherwise milk may stick to the bottom. lastly, it can be served warm or chilled but i personally like it when served chilled. ideally, you can prepare it on the previous day and refrigerate it overnight and serve it chilled next day.

notes:

  • firstly, make sure to boil the milk on low to medium flame to prevent from burning.
  • also, basundi thickens once cooled completely, so adjust the consistency as required by adding milk before serving.
  • additionally, use ½ cup condensed milk instead of sugar to reduce the cooking time of basundi.
  • finally, basundi taste great when served chilled and prepared more creamy.
