While we have all heard of brothers protecting sisters during Raksha Bandhan, Bhai Dooj is a cultural flip where sisters vow to protect their brothers. This festival is marked with delectable sweets and the lovely bond that a sister shares with her brother. If you are looking for yummy sweets for this occasion, these options are your best bet!

Apple Rabdi

If your brother has a sweet tooth with a flavour for fruits, you cannot go wrong with Apple Rabdi. This easy-to-make rabdi is rich, creamy and nutty, filled with the goodness of apples, pistachios and almonds. All you have to do is boil your milk till it is reduced to half its original quantity, add sugar, peeled & grated apples and let it cook. Add a dash of almond, pistachio and cardamom powder and your delectable Apple Rabdi is ready!


A public favourite, Rasmalai is one of the most popular and tasty sweets of all times. This soft, spongy and oozing in sweet milk is made from paneer, milk, almonds, pistachios and saffron. All you need is 25 minutes and you are ready to serve your brothers and family happiness in a bowl. 

Gulab Kheer

The exotic gulab kheer has the comfort of the traditional kheer but with an exotic twist of the rose flavour which makes it so royal on the taste buds. For this, you would need basmati rice, full cream milk, condensed milk, rose water and dried rose petals. Mix them all together and serve with a garnishing of the rose petals. Now this dessert is easy on the eyes and tongue!

Kesar Phirni

A traditional home grown sweet dish, kesar phirni is an assortment of saffron, milk, rice flour and sugar which come in together to make a simplistic yet so rich as well as creamy dessert. The dish can be made well within an hour. The exotic part about this dessert is its exotic touch of rose water which imparts a heavenly touch to your kesar phirni. 

Celebrate the sibling love with some cherished time together and of course these desserts that are sure to make this day memorable. Wishing you a very happy Bhai Dooj!
