Main Ingredients

  • 8
    almonds
    chopped or slivered
  • 4
    tsp Stevia Nature’s Sweetener
  • a pinch of saffron strands
  • 2
    cups whole milk
  • 200
    g sweetened condensed milk
  • 6
    cashews
    chopped or slivered
  • 1/2
    tsp cardamom powder
  • 10
    pistachios
    chopped or slivered
  • nutmeg
    grated or powdered

For Garnish

  • 1-2
    tbsp pistachios
  • 1-2
    tbsp almond slivers

Instructions

1
Add 2 cups whole milk and 200 g sweetened condensed milk in a thick bottomed saucepan or kadai. Stir and mix with a wired whisk so that the condensed milk is mixed evenly with the whole milk. If you do not prefer a sweeter basundi add ¼ cup whole milk
2
Place the pan on stovetop. Keep heat to a low. Bring this mixture to a gentle boil. Keep on stirring at intervals so that the liquids do not get browned or burn from bottom. Cook on low heat and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes. Stir after intervals of 3 to
3
Gradually the basundi mixture would begin to thicken. Scrape the milk solids from the sides and the cream collected on the top and add it back to the basundi mixture. Add nutmeg, slivered nuts (6 cashews, 10 pistachios, 8 almonds), 1/2 tsp cardamom powd
4
Mix and stir to combine. Continue to simmer for 1 to 2 minutes more. Pour in serving bowls. Serve basundi hot, warm or cold. While serving, garnish with some additional slivered nuts. I like to top mine with 1-2 tbsp almond slivers & 1-2 tbsp pistachio
