Kesariya Fruit Rabri or Indrani Cup


Rabri is a popular, classic and exotic Indian dessert. Generally rabri is served with Jalebi, Gulab jamun and many other sweets, but my mother invented a different variety of rabri with fresh and dry fruits. The reason being I was very fussy about eating fruits in my childhood This Kesariya fruit rabri is a healthy and delicious thandai flavoured dessert made with milk, fresh fruits and dry fruits.
