Chenna Rabri, Chenna Rabdi

Chenna, made at home by curdling full-fat milk, is thickened and sweetened to make a delicious Chenna Rabri.

With aromatic hints of saffron and cardamom, this rabri is a delightful dessert all by itself, but adding chopped fruits to it before refrigerating makes it all the more irresistible.

While you can add any fruits to this, tangy fruits balance the sweetness of the rabdi better making the outcome more enjoyable. Serve chilled, garnished with chopped nuts.

I have always loved the regular rabdi we have.. But this is something different. However loved this too.. Along with having the regular rabdi, you get a great mouthfeel of the fruits added into it.. as well as the panner in it..
