I have been getting so many request to share this recipe in my blog. Basudi is nothing but a reduced milk with lots of sugar and nuts in it. The flavour comes from nuts and condensed milk. It makes a simple sweet for any special occasion. Valentine's day is around the corner, i thought of sharing this awesome sweet.
Anyone can make this sweet, the one thing which you have to do is keep reducing the milk and keep stiring it often, so nothing catches in the bottom, because milk can catch so easily and if it do burn it makes the whole batch taste bad. So keep a eye on it..
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
