Recipe
1
Take 1 litre of full cream milk in a heavy bottomed pan and bring it to a boil.
2
Once the milk starts boiling, reduce the flame to low and let it simmer. Keep stirring occasionally to prevent the milk from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
3
After about 30 minutes, the milk will reduce to half its original quantity. Now, add 100 grams of sugar and stir well until it dissolves completely.
4
Add a pinch of saffron strands soaked in 2 tablespoons of warm milk, 1/4 teaspoon of cardamom powder, and a handful of chopped almonds and pistachios. Mix well.
5
Continue to simmer the milk on low flame for another 10-15 minutes until it thickens to your desired consistency.
6
Turn off the flame and let the basundi cool down. It will thicken further upon cooling.
7
Serve the basundi chilled, garnished with some more chopped nuts.
