Whole fat milk - 1 litre
Sugar - ¼ cup
Almonds - 6 to 7
Pistachios - 6 to 7
Saffron - few strands
Elaichi pwd - a generous pinch
Rose essence - few drops
In a wide mouthed non-stick pan, take the whole milk.
Boil the milk in medium flame.’
Once it comes to boil, keep the flame low and cook slowly.
Stir frequently and let the malai ( cream ) thicken at the edge of the pan.
Now continue boiling the milk.
Keep stirring the milk once in a while, so that it does not stick to the bottom and collect malai / cream on one side.
Continue this cooking, until the milk turns thick and the consistency reduces to 1/4 its original volume.
Meanwhile blanch the almonds and pistachios and slice them thinly and keep ready.
Soak the saffron threads in 2 tbsp of warm milk.
Now add sugar, elaichi pwd and stir it in well. ( adjust the sweetness according to your taste )

Remove from fire and cool. ( Remember it will thicken when cooled )
When cold, add the Rose Essence and blend it in.
Our yummy sweet Rabadi is ready.
