All of you (except people who hate milk or even the flavor of milk) might have tasted basundi (milk based sweet). It is easy to prepare and very tasty. The dish I'm presenting today is Badam Basundi. I learnt it from a TV show. I tried it exactly the way it was shown on TV and just changed the name. Hope you all like it and serve your family or just try it for yourself if you are a sweet lover. Good Luck...

Soaked and peeled badam(almonds) - 250 gms, Soaked cashews - 1/2 cup, Boiled milk - 1 1/2 cups, Sugar - 2 cups, Semolina (ಚಿರೋಟಿ ರವೆ) - 1 cup, Ghee - 1/4 cup, Cashews and Almonds (for garnishing) - 1/4 cup.

Preparation Method:
1.  Mix milk and sugar and allow it to boil.
2.  Soak Almonds and Cashews in water for 3 to 4 hours in water.
3.  In a pan heat 1 spoon of ghee and gently fry the semolina (chiroti rave) till it is slightly brown.
4.  Grind the soaked and peeled badam and cashews into a fine paste.
5.  When the milk starts boiling add semolina and ground paste to it. Mix well so that no lumps are  formed.
6.  When the mixture starts thickening add 4 to 5 spoons of ghee to it and keep on stirring till the mixture starts separating from the pan. Remove it from the flame.
7.  Cut the almonds and cashews kept for garnishing into long and thin pieces and fry them in 2 spoons of ghee till they are golden yellow.
8.  Transfer the basundi to a serving bowl and garnish with fried badam and cashews as shown in the picture.
9.  Serve it hot or after chilling it for few minutes.

Serves: 7 – 8 persons.
