Basundi recipe, Basundi Recipe With Condensed MilkBasundi recipe is similar to rabri but little thin in consistency. It is a famous sweets recipe of Maharashtra and Gujarat.

Traditionally basundi is made by cooking and drying up whole milk for long hours. But in this recipe I have reduced cooking time by using condensed milk. It not only makes basundi recipe faster but also much creamy.

It is very commonly prepared during festivals like diwali, holi, ganesh chaturthi and navratri. Make it on any special occasion and enjoy. Let's see the recipe.


1 litre whole milk
1 cup condensed milk
4 cardamom pods, crushed in mortar pestle
A generous pinch of saffron
8-10 sliced almonds
8-10 sliced pistachio
2 tablespoons charoli/chironji

Step by step basundi recipe

Step 1. Take a heavy bottomed sauce pan and place it on a medium flame. Pour a tablespoon of water and let it sizzle then pour milk. This is how water makes a layer on sauce pan doesn't let milk stick to the bottom of pan. Let the milk come to a boil.

Step 2. Add the condensed milk and stir. Let it simmer for 10 minutes on low heat while stirring and scraping the sides.

Step 3. Once the milk starts to thicken, add freshly crushed cardamom pods, saffron, almonds, pistachio and chironji.

Step 4. Cook for another 7- 8 minutes depending on how thick basundi you want.

Step 5. Switch off the gas.
Pour basundi in dish and garnish with nuts and saffron. I have also used silver leaf for garnish which is totally optional. Serve basundi hot or chilled as you like.
