Indian desserts usually have milk as the main ingredient. A fast favorite and addition to many Indian desserts is rabri sweet. If you’re thinking about how to make rabri at home, it is quite a simple process.
Mind you, this might be time-consuming but very rewarding in the end! The result is a creamy and delicious dessert that you can use in Shahi Tukda, Malpua rabdi, with rabdi Jalebi, or on its own. Read below for an easy rabri recipe…
How to Make Rabri – Preparation
Like mentioned before, rabdi dessert is pretty simple and doesn’t require any special equipment. Just make sure that the pan/utensil you are using will be able to hold milk.
The quantity of milk really depends on how many people you are serving it to. Our recipes are mostly targeted at families with 4-6 people. But if you are preparing it for 2 persons, then halve the ingredients.
Heat your pan and add milk to it along with your preferred flavorings. Cardamom and saffron work best for us. If you would like an added taste, then go for rose water too.
Let the milk cook for about an hour or so, until you see the quantity reducing to half. Garnish and serve warm or cold.
How to Make Rabdi – Recipe with 2 ingredients!
- 1 liter milk

- After the milk boils, add your preferred ingredients; cardamom, saffron, and rose essence
