HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY. Let this year be a one filled with happiness and wishes fulfilled with good health and prosperity. Since my sister A had come over from Singapore, we had a bash on New Year. She is not a patron of sweets and so i tried to impress her with a heritage dish. Thus Basundi. Creamy and decadent, loaded with calories, we made sure that all of us had a small serving so as to control the calories. Reserve the extra calories for the rest of the year.
Milk 1 liter
Sugar 50 gms
Pistachios 10 nos
Almonds ` 10 nos
Kalonji 2 Tbsp
Heat the milk in a wide heavy bottomed vessel and skim of the malai as it accumulated to the corner of the vessel.
Once the mixture becomes thick with lots of malai, add the sugar and stir till it dissolves.
Allow the mixture to cool and garnish with nuts.
I didn't add cardamom or any other flavourings, the aroma of quartered milk was enough.
