chida dahi

Soaking time: 1 hour

Serves: Each flavored portion serves 3-4


  • Chida [thick rice flakes]: Washed in water. Soaked in milk for an hour – 350 gms
  • Milk: Boiled 500 ml
  • Cardamom powder: 2 tsp
  • Sugar: 275 gms
  • Condensed milk (Amul Mithai Mate): 6 tbsps (for rice flakes soaked in milk)
  • Curds: Beaten 500 ml
  • Honey: 3 tbsps (for rice flakes soaked in milk)

For flavoring:

  • Jamun: Puree 2 tbsps
  • Jackfruit: Diced 2 tbsps
  • Mango: Diced 2 tbsps
  • Banana: Mashed 2 whole
  • Rasgulla: Pista stuffed 5-6


For milk soaked rice flakes:

  • Soak rice flakes in very hot milk for an hour along with sugar and cardamom powder.
  • Once the rice flakes soaked in milk have come to room temperature, add condensed milk, curds and honey to it. Mix well to combine. At this point we need to divide the chida mix into 4 equal portions for flavoring.
  • Now add each of the fruits (mango, jackfruit, banana and jamun puree) into each of the portions i.e., each fruit gets one portion of rice flake mix. Mix well to combine.
  • You can drop in some pista stuffed rasgullas in one of the portions and serve cold.
