Basundi

I want to wish all my family members,friends and fellow blogger friends a very happy and colorful
Holi.
Today I am going to share a very rich and thick sweet treat from Maharashtra and Gujarat.
Basundi making is time consuming process, it took me almost 40 to 45 minutes,but it is completely
Worth to try and final result is amazing.



Ingredients:
  • Milk- 4 cups
  • Sugar-1/4 cup
  • Almonds-10-12(chopped)
  • Cashews -10-12( chopped)
  • Cardamom powder-1/4 tsp
  • Saffron-15-20 strands


Method:
Place a heavy bottomed pan on medium heat,add milk and bring it to a boil.
Lower the heat and cook, stirring frequently.
Take 2 tbsp boiled milk and put the saffron strands.keep them aside.
Keep stirring  and reduce it till it becomes thick.
Add the sugar and stir until it is dissolved.Add saffron milk and Simmer for another 6 to 8 minutes.
Add cardamom powder and chopped nuts. Turn off the heat and serve warm or chilled.
Enjoy!!!
Note:
You can adjust the sugar quantity as per your taste.
Do not forget to stir frequently,otherwise it will burn from bottom.
Make sure basundi is not too thick because when its get cold it will become thicker.
