An interesting version of kheer in which sweet boondis are used to thicken and flavour the milk. It is important to remember to cool the milk completely before you add the boondi so that the boondi stays whole. If you add it into hot or warm milk it is sure to disintegrate giving you a besan flavoured rabdi.

Since i love boondi, this is an awesome recipe. Milk has been cooked to half its amount and then flavored with cardamom and saffron and boondi added to it. Great dessert.
