Ingredients to make Motichoor Rabri Parfait

  • For the Boondi:
  • gram flour (besan) 1 cup
  • A generous pinch of saffron powder/kesar or crushed saffron
  • water 3/4cup
  • Green cardamoms 2-3, seeds removed and the skins discarded
  • melon seeds 1/2 tbsp
  • oil for Deep frying
  • A bit of oil or ghee for applying on the palms while shaping the ladoos
  • For the Syrup:
  • sugar 1 cup
  • water 1/2 cup
  • A generous pinch of saffron powder or crushed saffron
  • For Rabri:
  • Full cream milk 1 litre
  • cardamom powder 1 tsp
  • sugar 2 tbsp ( You can adjust the sugar according to your liking )
  • Almond and pistachio slivers for garnishing

How to make Motichoor Rabri Parfait

  1. Preparing the Sugar Syrup:
  2. Dissolve the sugar, saffron threads and water in a pan and keep it on the stove top.
  3. Cook the sugar solution till it reaches one thread consistency and then turn off the flame. Keep the sugar solution aside.
  4. Preparing the Boondi:
  5. Make a smooth flowing batter of the gram flour/besan, crushed saffron and water. The batter should neither be thick nor thin. It should be a flowing batter without any lumps.
  6. Heat sufficient oil in a kadhai. Hold a perforated spoon over the hot ghee, pour a little batter over it and pass the batter through it fast into the kadhai to make boondis. Fry for about 45 seconds to 1 minute.
  7. Remove the boondis using a slotted spoon, drain thoroughly and put into the syrup. When the boondis have absorbed all the syrup, add the melon seeds, cardamom seeds and mix gently.
  8. Apply some oil or ghee on your palms and shape the motichoor ladoos. The mixture would be warm when preparing the ladoos. Keep the ladoos aside.
  9. Preparing the Rabri:
  10. Heat full cream milk in a heavy bottom pan.
  11. When the milk comes to a rolling boil, simmer the heat and let it cook on low heat till it is reduced to half. Add cardamom powder and sugar and cook again till the milk is thickened and has reduced to almost 1/4th of the original quantity.
  12. Remove the rabdi from heat and let it cool completely.
  13. How to Serve:
  14. Crumble the ladoos and make a layer of motichoor in shot glasses. Pour rabdi on top. Garnish with almond and pistachio slivers.
  15. Make all the parfaits in the same manner. Chill in refrigerator for 5-6 hours before serving.

My Tip:

Motichoor ladoos do not stay for long and therefore should be consumed fast. If you like your Rabdi smooth, you can churn it once in a blender.
