How To make Basundi? | Instant Basundi Recipe

Basundi is a popular Indian dessert made from milk, sugar, and nuts. It is a sweet, creamy, and rich dessert that is usually served on special occasions like festivals and weddings. In this recipe, I will guide you through the process of making Basundi from scratch.

Here is a breakfast recipe that is easy to prepare and delicious to eat.


  • 2 liters full-fat milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • A pinch of saffron strands
  • 1 tablespoon chopped nuts (almonds, pistachios, and cashews)


  • Pour the milk into a heavy-bottomed pan and bring it to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir the milk occasionally to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  • Once the milk comes to a boil, reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for about an hour. Stir the milk occasionally to prevent it from forming a skin on top.
  • After an hour, the milk will have reduced to about half its original volume. At this point, add the sugar and cardamom powder to the milk and stir well. Let the milk simmer for another 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Meanwhile, soak the saffron strands in a tablespoon of warm milk and set it aside.
  • Once the sugar has dissolved and the milk has thickened, turn off the heat and add the saffron milk to the pan. Stir well to combine.
  • Let the Basundi cool down to room temperature. Once it has cooled, transfer it to a serving bowl and garnish with chopped nuts.
  • You can serve Basundi chilled or at room temperature. Refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days.


  • Use a heavy-bottomed pan to prevent the milk from sticking to the bottom and burning.
  • Stir the milk occasionally to prevent it from forming a skin on top.
  • Use full-fat milk for a creamy and rich Basundi.
  • Adjust the sugar quantity according to your taste preferences.
  • Soak the saffron strands in warm milk for at least 10-15 minutes before adding it to the Basundi.
  • Use a mix of chopped nuts like almonds, pistachios, and cashews for a crunchy texture.


In conclusion, Basundi is a delicious and easy-to-make dessert that is perfect for any special occasion. With this recipe, you can make it at home and impress your friends and family. So, go ahead and give it a try!
