Cooking is one of my passions. Though I am working, I make nutritious and tasty food at home. My food has less oil and no artificial color.

An Outlook of Mango Rabdi

We get plenty of mangoes in summer. We make both spicy and sweet dishes using raw and ripe mangoes. Mango is the king of fruits. Mango fruit desserts are creamy, royal and rich. This deep yellow color scented fruit is a blessing gift to humankind. Eating them has numerous health benefits too.

Mango rabdi is made using ripe mango pulp, milk, sugar, dry nuts, cardamom, and saffron. You have to condense the milk to 1/3 of its' volume by simmering for a long time. Instead, you can use tinned condense milk to lessen the cooking time. Adding sugar is optional. If you are using sweet condensed milk, no need to add sugar. Mix the thick mango pulp with condensed milk, cardamom powder, saffron, and dry nuts. Keep it in the freezer for setting.Garnish it with chopped fresh mangoes, almond flakes, pistachios, and saffron strands. Serve chilled dessert in a bowl.

I used milk and tinned condensed milk in 50-50 proportion. I didn't add sugar because the sweetness from the tinned condensed milk and mangoes was sufficient. The dessert came out gorgeous and yummy.
