I really don't know why I blog certain dishes versus the others. I guess, I do it if I feel like it! But there were couple of things about this dessert that nudged me into blogging it.
First time I made Rabri for a family gathering, everybody loved it. To every party and potluck I take this dessert, it always receives compliments and pleases even the pickiest of eaters. I realized this dessert had a lot of potential and decided to make this for the Holiday dessert bake–off at work. To my surprise, it was voted as the best dessert. Yay! With all these accolades, it would be unfair not to blog this star dessert and share it with everybody.
Rabri is a sweet condensed milk dessert. It is milk in its purest essence and is known for its taste and texture. Milk is thickened by evaporating on low flame and then sweetened and flavored. The delicious small pieces of solidified milk cream come along in every spoon with a nice aromatic flavor of saffron and cardamom. It is rich, creamy, and perfectly perfect!
Sweet, and rich, rabri sits lightly on the tongue and fills you up in a few spoonfuls. This crave-worthy dessert will take your taste buds through a milky melody!
