Traditionally it is prepared by boiling full fat milk on low heat for a long time until it reduces to less than half the quantity. The consistency is more fluid and flowing not thick like Rabri. Here is the quick and easy method using condensed milk where basundi will be ready in about 30 minutes.

Basundi is a perfect and scrumptious dessert to enjoy on any festivals like Diwali, Ganesh Chaturthi, Krishnastami, Dussera or even on any parties.

Quick and easy recipe of basundi with condensed milk with step by step process shots and video is here.

Recipe Notes:

Traditionally process is to boil whole milk for a long time until it thickens. But in this recipe, I have reduced cooking time by using condensed milk.

Basundi get thicker once it cools down.

Make sure to stir the mixture very frequently to prevent burning at the bottom of the pan.

Add any dry fruits of your choice.

Since we are using the condensed milk you may notice less milk solids compared to traditional process though this quick process tastes as delicious as basundi prepared traditionally.
