What is the difference between Basundi and Rabri??

While browsing I got a doubt about this  Rabri and Basundi.. because both of the recipes are similar and it`s difficult to find out the minor differences..But with some researching on Google got an information so here it goes..

In Basundi process,no need to scrap the fat/malai  while cooking so can leave it as it is or can stir it in the milk until milk reduces to half. Basundi color color looks pink when you cook for some more time even after adding sugar..Then it is also looks thin in consistency.You can serve this directly or with  puri.

In Rabri/Rabdi is popular in Rajasthan state. In the process,while boiling milk,we`ll scrape down the excess of fat/malai which settles on sides of the vessel and cooks until milk reduce to half of the quantity.Because of this rabri is heavy dessert in fact high in calories too.It look thick in consistency and rich in taste..Usually rabri is serves with rasagullas or directly.
