Sitaphal basundi is a rich and delicious mishtan of thickened milk, variation to plain Gujarati basundi very similar to the North Indian rabdi. custard apple basundi is basically just boiling the milk in a thick bottomed pan till the milk is reduced. Then add sugar and cardamom powder, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 10 to 15 minutes, cool and then add the custard pulp, almond and pistachio.

I would like to share with you some tips to make the perfect sitaphal basundi recipe. 1. The important thing to remember here is that the milk has to be full fat. The process of making sitaphal basundi includes thickening the milk over a slow flame and this will only be possible with full fat milk. 2. We are only using 1/3 cup of sugar here because this is sitaphal basundi. The sitaphal we are going to use are also very sweet in nature and hence that eliminates the need to add more sugar here. 3. The quality and the thickness of the pan really matters here as you do not want the milk to burn and brown at the bottom of the pan. 4. Cook on a medium flame for 10 to 15 minutes, while stirring occasionally and while scrapping the sides of the pan. 5. Make sure to add the custard apple pulp only once it has cooled completely, or else it will curdle .

Sitaphal basundi is often made during festival season during Diwali. Sitapphal is available during Diwali and makes a perfect Diwali sweet.

Almonds and pistachios add crunch to this rich, creamy Custard apple basundi.

   Hi, There is no special method to remove it. but make sure you use a riped custard apple so that it becomes easier to deseed them.
