This recipe is free of dairy because I typically have only raw dairy in my home, although cooking raw dairy is still better than buying milk with artificial vitamins added, I really don’t like cooking raw milk if I don’t have to. Cardamom is a favorite of mine and it goes perfectly with coconut. This version of Malabi is maybe an Asian-Middle Eastern fusion. Use plain, whole fat milk or see my notes on this coconut milk recipe.
