About this Recipe

Custard Apple or Sitaphal is a seasonal tropical fruit with a sweet, creamy pulp. It is the key ingredient of our recipe. The sitaphal arrives in the market during the festive season which makes the sitaphal basundi a must-have dessert of Navratri and Diwali.

It is one of the tastiest desserts and is really mouth-watering and sweet. The Custard Apple gives it a unique taste and this dessert can be enjoyed at any ocassions.

Sitaphal Basundi is loved by all for its rich, creamy flavor. Adding Sitaphal to the classic basundi is a great way of adding taste and delight to the dessert. The sitaphal basundi is one of the very first desserts I ever made and is very close to my heart as I learned it from my Dadi (Grand Mother).
