Hai friends today i am coming with the recipe called "Basundhi".
Basundi is an Indian dessert mostly in Bihar, Maharashtra, Gujarat and Karnataka. It is a sweetened dense milk made by boiling milk on low heat until the milk is reduced by half.
Heavy cream may be added during the boiling process to hasten the thickening process. Once reduced, a little sugar, cardamom, Buchanania seeds also known as Charoli and/or saffron are added. Basundi is served chilled, often garnished with slices of almonds and pistachios.My husband love this sweet so on behalf of our anniversary i prepared this sweet.We are gng to enjoy the sweet tomorrow.I hope he love it.Ok lets go to the recipe.


Milk-4 cups
Sweet condenced milk-1/2 cup
Sugar-1/2 cup
Elachi little pinch
Saffron few strings
Sliced Almonds- few


Place the thick deep bottomed pan and add the milk .
Boil the milk and when it starts to boil just low the heat .
