Basundi

Basundi is a typical Maharashtrian dessert like Shrikhand. Basundi with Puri is favorite festival food. It is very easy and can be prepared with very common ingredients available at home. It is prepared by boiling milk and reducing it to half or 1/4 th of the quantity. This takes little extra time. So now a days we prepare it by adding condensed milk. Main thing I don't like the thick Malai (cream) in Basundi ;)



 
 
Ingredients


Full cream Milk - 1 lit.

Condensed Milk - 1 can (I used Milkmaid)

Cardamom powder - 1 teaspoon

Charoli/ Chironji - 1 teaspoon




Procedure

Take milk in a heavy bottom pan or a kadai. Bring the milk to boil. Keep it on low flame and boil for another 7-8 minutes. Stir continuously so that milk should not come up. Now add condensed milk, cardamom powder. Stir continuously for 10-15 minutes. Take care that milk should not stick to the side or bottom of the pan. When the milk become sufficient thick, remove from the flame and add charoli. Let it cool down. You can refrigerate it and serve child basundi with garam puffed puris. If you need you can add sugar for more sweetness.
