Basundi is one of the which we make often in my mom's home, but haven't done it after marriage for long time...While watching a tv advertisement ,my hubby asked me what is that basundi sweet..then only it striked to me that I haven't prepared it after marriage even once..So made it today for him...I saw this carrot basundi recipe in a cookbook and folowed it and it came out awesome..We all liked it..I'm preparing this for BM#57 under desserts..I'm sure you guys will also like it..Do give a try this festive season and enjoy...
