Recipe Ingredients

  • 500 ml Milk, full fat
  • 12- 15 Kaju katli / barfi
  • 3-4 Green cardamom
  • Rose water : few drops
  • Saffron : few strands
  • Pistachios : a handful

Recipe Instructions

  1. Boil the milk in a heavy bottom pot, with few green carrdamoms thrown in, till it reduce to its half the measure. This will take around 20 minutes on medium low heat. Keep stirring.

  2. If you want more malai or cream on top ,then keep collecting them on sides of the pan. I dont like that so I keep stirring it, that way cream will get fully incorporated into the milk and gives a delicious taste to it.

  3. Breaks the kaju barfi into small pieces, and add it to the thickened milk.
  4. Simmer the milk on low heat till the kaju barfi melts and incorporates well in the rabdi.
  5. Sprinkle rose water, add few strands of saffron in it, throw some pistachios, cover and let it cool.
  6. Once the rabdi cool completely, it will thicken more.
  7. Keep it in the fridge and serve chilled.
