Apple Rabdi

>> March 18, 2015

Hi Everyone,

Mala's Kitchen is stepping into 9th year. I want to thank my Mom (amma) & my husband who is helping me all the time for everything. Most importantly I want to thank my blog readers & viewers who motivate me to keep my interest alive.

For celebrating the 9th Anniversary of my blog I have made a sweet dish called "Apple Rabdi (or Rabri)".

I have made a small variaton to the regular plain Rabdi and it has been laced with apple flavour.  I felt this is an easy & a good way of enhancing the flavour of rabdi.
