For the day 2 of Indian sweets,themed under Blogging Marathon #69 is Basundi.
Basundi is a popular Maharastrian sweet and mostly its accompanied with puris.But this sweet is available in most of the shops in Tamilnadu and its my favorite.
Basundi is sweetened,thick milk flavored with cardamom powder and saffron,garnished with lot of chopped nuts.I also used some sweetened condensed milk to get extra rich taste.Off to the recipe.............

  • Take the milk in a pan and keep it on a stove top and let it boil.After boiling simmer it and scrape the sides of the pan and stir in continuously to prevent burning.Meanwhile soak saffron in a tsp of milk.
