Basundi Sweet

Basundi is indian popular sweet dish... The main ingredient of this sweet dish is milk. This dish is rich in calories and also in proteins We used to have it a lot in restaurants and home when we were kids. There are a lot of different preparation methods for this.

My mom used to prepare it like this “ At home in india we (everyone does) boil milk every day. She used to collect the cream from the boiled milk. Its called ‘haalina kene’ in kannada. She used to collect all the cream for a week. Then she whipped it using a blender, warm it and add sugar, cashews, pista etc. ”Here of course I have tried it using Cream which is readily available in the stores. Although I was not very satisfied with it , it was ok. Then my friend ,during our usual conversation, mentioned her own method for this. I tried it and it came out very well.I know it has a lot of calories … but once in a while I guess we can indulge in something like this. Kids will love it though.

Sweets like this basundi are celebratory, so some calories don't count. [unfortunately they do for some of us :(]
Like the touch of badam.
