Rabdi is a traditional Indian dessert, made during the festivals or on special occasions. The milk is reduced to a creamy pudding texture and mildly sweetened. There is no short cut to a rich, creamy and luscious Rabdi recipe.The full fat milk needs to be slow cooked, and slowly keep collecting the layer of cream that forms at the surface. 
Sitaphal Rabdi Recipe is a delicious and clever way of sweetening the rabdi with the de-seeded custard apple chunks. Well ripe custard apple is pretty sweet on its own, so you would not need any sugar to be added to the recipe. Serve the chilled.
