The rich and intense flavour of boiled milk tinged with enchanting spices like saffron and cardamom, is uniquely coupled with freshly-grated pineapple in this innovative Pineapple Basundi.
The flavour of pineapple is quite strong in this dessert, as the fruit is grated rather than chopped. Make sure you use ripe and sweet pineapple to get the right flavour. The creamy texture of the Pineapple Basundi is, needless to say, absolutely rich and irresistible.
Altogether, the fruity notes and the creamy texture combine to make this an awesome dessert , which is ideal to serve at parties . You can also try other tasty desserts like Basundi and Pear Rabdi .
