Basundi - A dedication to my blogger buddies

Basundhi3

Wedding is a beginning of a new life. My big day is just a couple of weeks ahead and there is a lot of pomp and joy at home already. Parents are on their toes to get things all set perfect to make the day a very special one for us.

Me being the last one at home and for my generation in my family, is consider the apple of their eye and each of my cousins are treating my occasion as a festival and have been hosting bridal shower parties for me :) Oh that is pretty common and have seen such before.

Has anyone out here seen or experienced any virtual bridal shower party???!!!!!! No way.. Guess I am the most privileged one to have one such celebration for myself :)

My sweetest fellow bloggers got together to celebrate my big occasion and decided to host a virtual bridal shower party for me in their blogs. They picked up recipes from my blog, recreated them and posted them on their blogs with loads of wishes for me :) Thank you Anamika for such a cute idea and effort :) Nothing could be as pleasing as this :)

Guess what?!! it was absolutely a surprise for me to wake up one fine day last week to see 13 blogger buddies post something for me :) I exclaimed in joy!! I would say it could easily be the best bridal shower party ever.

I thank each and every blogger friend who took efforts to celebrate it for me.

Thank you -

Basundhi2

Ingredients:

Milk - 1 ltr
Sugar - 10 tsps
Saffron strands - few
Cashew nuts - few
Cardamom powder - a pinch

Basundhi1

Method:

Take the milk in a shallow non-stick pan and allow it to boil in medium flame. Leave it untouched until it starts forming malai(cream or paal aadai). Stir a couple of times in between until it becomes thick and creamy.

Meanwhile take a few tsps of warm milk and soak the saffron strands in it for ten mins.

Chop the cashews finely and roast it in ghee until light brown.

Once the entire milk comes down to 1/3 of its quantity and is creamy enough stir in the sugar, saffron milk and cardamom powder cook for just few mins. Garnish with roasted cashews and refrigerate.

Serve chill and enjoy eating :)
