Rabdi

Rabdi ,also called Rabri is sweeten reduced milk . The milk is boiled over slow flame and reduced to more than half . Sugar and cardamom complete this delicious sweet.

You travel up North and you shall spot sweet shops who would be preparing the Rabri outside their shops . They have big iron pans / kadahis with milk and a huge iron spatula . One person is on it . It is cooked on slow fire and needs constant stirring . All the cream that comes up is gathered and put on the side of the kadahi . These are called lachas. Later sugar and cardamom are added . The word Lachedar Rabri comes from this .

Rabdi is generally enjoyed chilled and as it is , though it’s a base of many Indian sweets . It makes a wonderful combo with many sweets . Rabri Falooda is one such combo which is very close to my heart . It brings back nostalgic memories of my childhood . Baked Boondi with Rabri , Jalebi Rabdi , Malpua Rabri are some of the very popular combos with this simple reduced milk . Rajasthan has a special variety of ladoos made with Rabri , they are called Rabri Ladoo ! It was recently that I served Motichoor Golgappe at our BM # 100 Meet . These golgappas are topped with Rabri !

Well , Rabri is my last days post for week 1 of our Mega Marathon where Sweets and Snacks are the theme.
