Low fat milk thickened with apple. The addition of nutmeg and cardamom blends well with the subtle flavours.

Try not to peel the apple, as much of the fibre is present in the peel and just below it.

Select sweet apples for this recipe, as sharp apples can split the rabadi bitter and so render it useless.

Also try other diabetic friendly Indian sweets like Paneer Kheer and Malai Peda .

   Hi Pvm, Coconut milk will surely not taste good, you can try with non-dairy milk

Tasty and be very careful to use sweet apples otherwise your milk will split.
