Instant Rabdi | Rabri

Nov 26, 2012         4 comments.

Disclaimer: This is NOT the authentic version of a Rabri (rabdi). Rabri a sweet dish that is prepared by reducing milk. It takes quite a while to do that and tastes delicious. But thanks to the invention of Microwave, we get to make it whenever we want in under 10 minutes (provided we have everything on hand). And to get a dessert in 10 minutes, in my opinion, is nothing short of a miracle! 😛

In this instant version, I use : milk, unsalted cottage cheese (paneer), condensed milk, cardamom powder, chopped almosnd and if you’re rich, a few saffron strands 😀

Start by adding all the ingredients to a microwave safe bowl

Give it a quick mix

Into the Microwave it goes for 5 minutes. (on high) If it gets too thick, add a few tablespoons of milk.

Mix well. Taste for sweet and adjust. Allow to cool.

Top it off with some almond slivers & serve warm or chilled! (warm tastes good!)

Wasn’t that silly? 😀 And let me assure you, it tastes nothing less than the authentic Rabdi. Its delicious and a quick fix for your sweet cravings! Plus, if you have uninvited guests for dinner, you know what you’ll be making, right? 😉
