Rabdi / Thick sweet Milk Cream

Wishing you all Eid Mubarak and a very Happy Ganesh Chaturthi ...
This creamy, smooth, thick and chilled dessert is something I always loved. This is a very tasty dessert which can be made using very less ingredients. Just a little time consuming, but the result is definitely worth the effort. We can adjust the sweetness according to the taste.

Once I tried this in a restaurant called   “Mast Kalander”, after a hearty meal, we ordered “Malpua with Rabdi” for dessert. That was the first time I tasted this delicious dish and simply fell in love with this amazing combination.

In my earlier posts I posted the recipe of Malpua and this time I am posting this amazing sweet  to celebrate Eid. This is an amazing combination even with jilebi and gulab jamun. I tried both while the Rabdi was left in my refrigerator. Will post the jilebi recipe very soon.

Rabdi tastes even more wonderful when stored and served in earthern pots.

  1. Milk (Full cream milk)- 1ltr
  2. Pistachios- a handful
  3. Cardomom powder- 1tsp
  4. Sugar (optional)- 2tbsp

  1. In a wide mouthed heavy bottomed non stick pan boil the full cream milk on slow flame.
  2. Keep stirring often, a thin layer of malai / cream will form on top surface, keep folding it in and boil till the milk becomes thick and is reduced to one- fourth of its original quantity.
  3. Add sugar and cook till the sugar is completely dissolved. It is optional to use sugar. I liked this without sugar.
  4. Mix in the cardamom powder and slivered pistachios. remove from heat and let it cool.
  5. When it attains room temperature transfer into a small earthen pot (Matki) and refrigerate and serve chilled.
