Baasundi

Ingredients:
18 cups(3 liters) Milk
2 - 2.5 cups Sugar
3 tsp Cashew nuts / Godambi
6 - 7 Pistachio
8 -10 Almonds / Baadami
4 - 5 Cardamoms / Elakki / Elachi
Pinch of Saffron

Recipe:
Scratch and remove the outer thin cover of almonds and pistachio.

Crush the nuts and cardamom together in a mixer for about one min as shown in the picture below.

Put 2-3 tsp warm milk in a bowl. Crush the saffron, add it to this bowl and keep it aside.

Put milk in a thick bottomed vessel and bring it to boil. As soon as it starts boiling, keep the milk in medium/low flame for about 20 mins. Keep stirring it once in 3-4 mins.

Add sugar and keep stirring the milk in medium flame for about 30 - 40 mins. The consistency of the milk should be like that of milkshake. Add crushed nuts and mix them well. Stir this mixture in medium flame for about 5 mins.

Add saffron milk and mix them well. Keep the Baasundi in low flame for about 3-4 mins.

Once it is cooled to room temperature, refrigerate and serve chilled.
