Rabri with stewed apples

Spread the love

Rabri with stewed apples-Rabri is an Indian traditional thickened milk dessert very popularly used by north Indians, they like to serve rabri with delicious hot jalebis. But I modified it a little and made it with stewed apples.

This Rabri with stewed apple dessert is one of my favourite desserts. So rich, creamy and tasty with the goodness of apples. It always comes first to my mind whenever I look for exclusive desserts for my dinner parties. Usually, stewed apples are served with apple sauce or whipped cream try this twist I am sure you will love it

My garden is full of apples. I am so excited to try different puddings out of it sharing a few recipes… stay tuned for more recipes.
