  • Milk- 2 liters
  • Sugar- 3 tbsp
  • Khoya- 1/4 cup
  • Cardamom powder- half tablespoon
  • Dry fruits- almonds and pistachios
  • Saffron- 1 tbsp


  • Get a pan with heavy bottom like kadhai for boiling the milk. Although you can even use a regular saucepan kadhai will be more helpful as milk will get thicken quickly.
  • Transfer 2 liters of milk to the kadhai and let it boil. Keep stirring the milk or else it will stick to the bottom of the pan
  • Once the milk starts getting thick, add khoya and Kesar
  • Let the milk simmer until only it reduced to 250 ml
  • Now add cardamom powder and sugar
  • Stir it properly and turn off the flame once the sugar is completely dissolved
  • Make sure malai doesn’t remain on the edges of the kadhai. Keep scraping the malai throughout the process of boiling and mix to the rabdi
  • Add sliced dry fruits and serve lacchedar rabdi hot
