Basoondi is a rich Indian sweet. Since it is highly rich in calories, it is normally a festive treat and basically thickened milk flavored with saffron or fruits or nuts.


Whole / Skimmed Milk 4 cups
Pistachios -5
Almonds - 3
Charoli - 1 tsp
Saffron few strands
Sugar 1/2 cup


Soak pistachios and almonds in warm water for few minutes.Peel the soaked nuts and thinly slice them. Wash charoli / sunflower seeds and keep aside. Soak saffron in a tbsp of milk for a minute.

Boil milk in a low flame until it reduces to half and coats the back of the spoon. Keep stirring during the process to avoid scorching. Stir in sugar and saffron milk. remove once the sugar melts completely. Garnish chilled basoondi with dry nuts.
