Rabdi is a thick creamy milk, texture of which is almost like condensed milk with some lumps of cream. Traditionally it is made by boiling full fat milk for hours till the milk turns almost off white colour. It is a labour intensive dessert which is then flavoured with nuts and saffron. Rabdi can be eaten on its own or topped over a jalebi or a malpua or with the combination of fried bread making it in a Shahi Tukda!

When I think of rabdi, I think of earthen pots, bank of Ganga river at Haridwar and jalebi 🙂 Food is like that, isn’t it? It can revoke such powerful memories. However, just the prospect of making rabdi, cooking it continuously for hours can be daunting for many, no matter how much they like this sweet and creamy dessert. So here is my version of rich and decadent Indian dessert with only 5 minutes and 4 ingredients, not counting water!

And if you want to further jazz up your rabdi, add any of the following to make it even tastier!

  1. Nuts like almonds and pistachios with saffron
  2. Small pieces of dry figs or apricots
  3. Nutmeg and cardamom for that perfect balance of sweet to spice
  4. Fruits like custard apple for that classic pairing or pomegranate for that popping burst or even a diced green apple or orange segments for that tart-sweet combination.
  5. Rose petals with rose water for that heady aroma
  6. Or any other combination that your heart desires 🙂

Or go completely off the track and make the delicious eggless mava cake with this rabdi 🙂
