Hi Chandni, Edible Kewra or Gulabjal liquids are used to flavor the Indian sweets. You can get easily from any Indian Grocery store. I hope I resolved your query, do let me know if you have any more questions. Chitra

Hi Mital, For thickening milk there are three options:- 1. You can use 4-5 tsp. Coffee Matte or any Coffee creamer powder with 4-5 cups of milk while boiling. 2. You can use Half n Half (you can get fat free also) instead of Milk for any Milk Sweets you make ( can get easily in Milk section). 3. You can use sweetened condensed milk (you can buy from any grocery store or can get easily Milkmaid condensed milk from Indian grocery store ) I hope I resloved your query, do let me know if you have any more questions.

hi chitra, your reciepe is very good but can you pls tell me what is the meaning of kewra liquid. thanks

Not regarding your recipe but I do have a query. I am in Canada and we get the 3.5%(Max.)fat milk . I made rabri by boiling the milk till it reduced to half the original quantity. Still it was like normal milk. It did not get thick at all. How come? Can you solve my problem and tell me what should I do so that the milk should get thick. After your suggestion only I will try to make sweets like Basundi and Doodhpak.
