  • 3 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp Cardomom Powdered
  • 1 Tsp Ghee for greasing
Instructions
  1. I had done this recipe using electric rice cooker. Choose a electric rice cooker which can hold minimum of 3 times the quantity of milk. Grease the rice cooker on sides with ghee. Add milk to the cooker and leave the cover open. Alternately, you can use a thick bottom wide mouthed Kadai.

  2. If you see in the picture below, I would have used both rice cooker and kadai. I let the milk to reduce almost to half in pressure cooker and then I transfer to kadai. It is just a time saving tip. Allow milk to reduce to 1/3rd of original quantity, add sugar and Cardamom.

  3. Cool the Basundi and serve.
