whenever i have to make a rabri , i make it in large quantity and by this way, i keep half rabri to eat and use remaining half rabri to make rasabali dessert which is also a very delicious sweet and very few people know about it. but rabri is a time taking thing to make so always make in bulk.

rabri is nice dish for weddings and large gatherings. If you make kheer or lab e shireen, they are remained many times , not fully eaten and chances are that it would get spoiled. Before we get it cooked from our nearby catering service shop, but this time I am thinking to make it myself. But I have no idea of making sweets for large gatherings.
