Rich enough to pamper your senses, tinged with the magic of Indian spices, the anjeer basundi is a dessert you will enjoy thoroughly.
Notes on anjeer basundi recipe. 1. Put a few saffron strands in the milk. When you add saffron to warm liquid, in this case milk, it releases flavor and a beautiful yellow color. 2. Mix well and keep aside till you make the anjeer basundi. No Indian sweet is complete without the addition of a spice like saffron. 3. Pour the full fat milk in a deep non-stick pan. The important thing to remember here is that the milk has to be full fat. The process of making basundi includes thickening the milk over a slow flame and this will only be possible with full fat milk. This process is similar to that of Rabdi. 4. Reduce the heat to a low-medium flame and cook for 15 to 17 minutes, while stirring occasionally and while scrapping the sides of the pan. This step is essential to the anjeer basundi recipe because the malai stuck to the pan provides the thickness and consistency we desire in the basundi.5. Once the milk is reduced by half, add the anjeer pieces. Only dried figs should be used to make the basundi as fresh figs will result in the milk curdling.
