Yesterday it’s my hubby Birthday, he loved the homemade sweet dish and during weekdays we all avoid sweet items and only eat homecooked healthy food, salad, and fruits but he didn’t want to eat especially an Apple.so I thought what special I can prepare which will be healthy and yummy too.So I got an idea to prepare Apple Rabdi which he simply loved it.
It is simply awesome dessert which is healthy yet delicious. Traditionally rabdi is made up by drying up milk in a heavy bottomed pan by heating for several hours. It is very time taking procedure.To lessen the effort it can be made very easily with condensed milk and several other ingredients.
Milk 1 liter
Condensed Milk 1/2 tin or to taste
Apple 3-4 (grated)
Cardamom powder 1/4 tsp
Assorted Dry Fruits 1 tbsp
Few Saffron strands(soaked in 1 tbsp milk)
Clarified Butter 1 Tbsp
Sugar 2 Tsp
In a heavy bottomed pan boil milk & saffron to reduce till 1/4th.meanwhile, take a pan add clarified butter & saute grated apple & adding 2 tsp sugar until apples get cooked. It will take around 5-7 min and juice dried up cooked apples, they become mushy and little bit transparent. Turn off flame and keep aside the pan.
Once milk reduces add grated apple & milkmaid and cook till you get desired consistency.add cardamom powder and assorted nuts turn off flame.keep in a refrigerator to chill.Serving cold or hot is an individual choice but I prefer chilled one.
Tips:- It’s very important to Cook grated apples(peeling is optional) before adding in milk else milk will curdle and you may end up in mess.

Kulfi is a popular frozen dairy dessert from the Indian Subcontinent.The more traditional ones are cream , rose, mango, cardamom, saffron , and pistachio.
Kulfi is traditionally prepared by evaporating sweetened and flavoured milk via slow cooking, with almost continuous stirring to keep milk from sticking to the bottom of the vessel where it might not burn, until its volume was reduced by a half, thus thickening it.The semi-condensed mix is then frozen in tight sealed moulds.
