Apple Rabbadi

Wednesday, September 28, 2011

Rabbadi is a very popular milk dessert in India. It is made from whole milk which is boiled to more than half its quantity and garnished with dry fruits. I happened to eat this milk sweet at my friend's place which had grated apple added to it. I felt that by adding the apple, this sweet seemed to be more light and fruity and more nutritious. This sweet is simple to make but takes a long time because the milk has to be reduced to less than half its quantity. So, the milk mixture can be made before hand and the grated apple can be added just before serving.

Serves eight to ten people.

Ingredients Quantity
Whole Milk 2 litres
Sugar ½ kg
Sliced Pistachios/Almond slivers 2 tbsps or more
Grated Apples 2 cups
Cardamom Powder 1½ tsps


  1. Take milk in a large pan and boil it well and reduce it to less than half its original quantity. The milk has to be continuously stirred or else the milk will burn at the bottom.

  2. The colour of the milk will turn slightly brown in colour.

  3. Then add the sugar and cook for sometime stirring it continously till it becomes thick and semi solid.

  4. Add the cardamom powder and remove from heat.Let it cool.

  5. Add the grated apple and mix throughly.

  6. Transfer the whole thing into a serving dish and garnish it with pista or almond slivers.

  7. Cool it well in the refrigerator before serving.
