Basundi is a popular Indian dessert made by reducing milk to a creamy texture. It is usually flavoured with cardamoms, saffron and dry fruits. Rose Basundi is a variation to the traditional version where the fragrance of rose gives it a soft and subtle flavour. This combined with the sweet essence of coconut milk makes it a must-try for all dessert lovers.
