Low fat milk thickened with apple! The addition of nutmeg and cardamom blends well with the subtle flavors. Try not to peel the apple, as much of the fiber 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.


Low fat milk 3 Cup (48 tbs) (99.7% fat
Grated apples 3/4 Cup (12 tbs) (with skin)
Cardamom powder 1/4 Teaspoon (elaichi)
Nutmeg powder 1 Pinch (jaiphal)
Sugar substitute 1 Teaspoon



1. In a deep non-stick pan, add milk, and bring it to boil. Then simmer for 10 - 12 minutes, while stirring and scraping the sides of the pan side by side.

2. Now add grated apple and mix properly. Simmer for a couple of minutes while stirring frequently and scraping the sides. Turn off heat.

3. Add cardamom powder and nutmeg powder and mix well. Keep aside to cool.

4. Once the rabadi is cool, stir in sugar substitute and mix properly. Keep it in refrigerator for at least an hour.


5. Serve the rabadi chilled as a dessert.
