Recipe Notes

  • To remove the seeds, take the pulp in a bowl and gently squeeze the pulp out from each seed.
  • No need to soak the almonds, grind them to a coarse powder and put in the milk to boil. It imparts a good flavour to the dessert.
  • The quantity of sugar depends on the sweetness of the fruit. Reduce the quantity if the fruit is very sweet.
