How to Make Pineapple Basundi
- Add pineapple pulp and sugar to a pan and cook for 5 minutes on medium heat.
Add milk and saffron strands to a heavy-bottomed pan.
Stir continuously while heating to avoid the milk from scorching at the bottom of the pan.
Cook for 30 min. until it is reduced to more than half.
Stir very frequently while cooking.
Keep scraping the sides of the pan regularly and stir the milk solids back into the pan.
Once the milk is thick and creamy, add sugar, nutmeg, and cardamom to the pan and
cook for 5 minutes until the sugar is dissolved.
Stir in chironji and slivered nuts.
Remove the pan from heat and cover it with a lid to avoid the formation of cream on top.
