Preparation Time: 15 minutes.
Cooking Time: 01 to 1 ½ hour.

Serves: 4

Ingredients and Quantity:

For the Rabri:
Full cream milk- 05 cups
Sugar- ½ cup / less , as desired
Pistachio nuts, lightly roasted and chopped / slivered-15 gm.
Almonds, lightly roasted and slivered- 15 gm.

For the Flavouring:

Sitaphal / Custard Apple pulp- 1¼ th  cup

Rose petals, dried and edible- 01 tsp.

In a heavy bottomed non-stick pan, add milk, bring to a boil.
Add the sugar and cardamom powder and simmer over low flame / heat.
Do not stir too often, as a layer of cream should form over it.
After the layer is formed, keep pushing it away from the sides towards the center with the help of a wooden spatula
Keep stirring the milk below it gently to avoid scorching / burning.
Repeat the process till 1/3 rd of the volume of milk is left.
The wider the vessel and the richer the milk, the faster it will thicken.
When done, the color changes to a beige-cream / off white, and the cream that was pushed aside, collects in layers. Add the chopped nuts.
Remove from the flame.
Let it cool. Add the Custard Apple Pulp, mix well.
Transfer to a serving dish / clay pots.
Refrigerate to chill for at least for 03 hours.

For the Serving:

Chef Tips:
1. You may use silver leaf to top this dessert to make it more attractive, but remember to apply it before you garnish the dessert. Do not apply silver leaf if this dessert is prepared for Navratri.
2. Make sure that the milk does not burn as, then it is next to impossible to rectify the burnt milk.
3. You may add a few drops of kewra essence or natural screw pine essence / Rose water when the Rabri is done.
