How to Make Easy Basundi

  • Boil the milk in a large, heavy bottomed pan, over a low flame.
  • When it is boiled, thick cream will collect at the top. Mix this back into the milk.
  • Continue cooking the milk on a low heat (about 20-25 minutes) till it reduces to half.
  • Stir occasionally so that it does not stick to the bottom or burn.
  • It changes color as it thickens, becoming a light cream or gold. It also gives off a deliciously sweet aroma.
  • When the milk has thickened, stir in the sugar.
  • Continue cooking on a low flame (10-20 minutes) till it feels heavy in your spoon.
  • It should be almost the consistency of thick cream that initially rose to the top.
  • Combine the nuts, spices and saffron with the milk. Remove the pan from the heat.
  • Set aside till ready to serve.
  • Serve basundi hot or cold, as part of the meal.
