  • Once the rabdi reaches a thick consistency, switch off the flame. Add the sugar and mix well. Add cardamom powder. I didn’t add.
  • You may feel it is turning watery after adding sugar. But do not worry. It will be perfect once it is cooled down. Do not add sugar while the flame is on. This may curdle the rabdi.

Rabdi- recipe
  1. Adding fresh cream is optional. I had some cream left over and also since i am travelling wanted to use it up.
  2. You can make it plain without adding saffron to this.
  3. If you wish to add condensed milk you can add so instead of fresh cream too. In that case reduce the sugar. 4 tblsp of condensed can be added.
