The most easiest simplest yet very tasty, lip smacking Indian dessert is the Basundi a popular Gujarati sweetened , flavored milk prepared by reducing the whole milk on a slow boil and scraping the thick cream from the sides to get a thickened milk to which sugar and saffron infused milk is added and garnished with almonds and pistachios.
There that’s about all the recipe.! It is that easy and so for those of you who do not have time to fuss with oily fried preparations for festivals, you can do this without any trouble, though you need to stir the thick milk patiently.This is very tasty when served both at room temp or serve chilled. Unlike other desserts where the method, timing the consistency of string syrups , the use of butter, the proportions going haywire, none of this in the preparation of Basundi. Just boiling the milk and reducing it to get a thick condensed milk flavored with nuts and cardamom. Beginners can take to this without any hassle.
