Basundi Recipe | Easy Basundi Recipe | How to make Basundi with detailed photos. Basundi is a very popular traditional Maharashtrian dessert made by boiling the milk until it is thickened.

In Maharashtra, basundi is made during festivals or on special occasions. Basically in Maharashtra, homemade basundi is served with puri or with Puran Poli. But it is also served as a sweet dish or dessert. Basundi is somewhat similar to rabadi, a famous North Indian sweet dish. The main difference between basundi and rabdi is its texture and consistency.

In this recipe, I have used the traditional method to prepare creamy and delicious basundi. It takes an hour to make the basundi. I have used full-fat milk which gives a thick and silky texture to the basundi. The time for making the basundi will vary as it depends upon the quality of milk and on the thickness of the pan.
