The exact origin of Basundi is not known, but it has been prepared over several centuries in western and southern parts of India.
Basundi is a heat-desiccated, thickened milk dessert, having white to light caramel colour, creamy consistency with soft textured flakes that are uniformly suspended throughout the product matrix. Basundi has a sweetish caramel aroma. Consumed directly as a dessert, it contains all the solids of milk in an approx. Two-fold concentration plus additional sugar, with high food and nutritive value. Additives increase the calorific value of the product.
