Instant Rabri

Four minutes, three ingredients and one bowl make this creamy Rabri which tastes as good if not better than the one sold at Mithai shops! After my Instant Kalakand recipe became one of my most viewed recipes, and readers responded by saying they not only loved the taste but also how easy and fast it was to make( 6-8 minutes depending on your microwave)!

I decided to play around with the ingredients and cook times and hit the jackpot with this Rabri recipe. Not only did it need only 3 ingredients, it was done in flat 4 minutes and there was only 1 pan to clean! It doesn’t get any easier than that.Some of my other popular,instant,EGGLESS desserts are Mango Mousse-No Eggs,Gelatin or Agar Agar,Blueberry Crumble/CobblerCookie PizzaKheer in a Crockpot, Lauki Ka Halwa, Sooji Ka Halwa, Meethi Mathi and Besan ke laddoo.

Rabri is so versatile,goes so well with Gulab jamun, Jalebi, Shahi Tukra or by itself.

Here is the written recipe followed by the pictorial one-

Cuisine: Indian | Recipe Type: Dessert


It was perfect texture for serving warm, it will thicken upon cooling,so I added 2 % milk. You can use any kind of milk. I used about 3/4 cup milk. Add more if you like rabri to be thinner.


Here is the step by step pictorial recipe-


To the milk powder add the condensed milk

Pour the whipping cream on top

Add saffron and ground cardamom seeds/elaichi dana and mix well

Microwave for 2 minutes, stir and microwave for 1 minute, stir and place in microwave again for 1 minute.

That’s it, its done! Garnish and serve hot immediately or chill and serve.

(It will thicken upon chilling, add milk at this point, mix and then put in refrigerator to chill)

  9. Hi, I don't have access to heavy cream, will low fat cream make a significant difference in texture?
    • Aanchal Gupta
      Hi Hima,I haven't tried with low fat cream,so don't really know how the texture would be. I would put one or two tablespoons of unsalted butter along with low fat cream to make up for the lack of fat. that should help with texture. Would love to know how it finally turned out. Please share your feedback.
