Milk plays a prominent role in Indian cuisine, elevating dishes to give them a bagful of flavour. Whether it’s succulent pieces of chicken malai kebab or sweet treats such as rabdi and kheer, the ingredients that give these dishes their distinct flavours and invigorating aroma are milk.

The eclectic variety of dishes that originate across the length and breadth of India, each make use of milk and milk products in a variety of settings — from simple family gatherings to noteworthy festivals and occasions, such as the Independence Day that is celebrated with fervour in India and among the Indian diaspora residing oversees.

Milk gives these dishes their familiar form, often acting as a prime tenderiser and thickener. It also adds a creamy consistency and richness to preparations, giving diners a hearty experience with wholesome flavour.

Understanding the importance of milk as a primary ingredient in Indian culture, Nutridor, a venture of TGI Group, an international organisation with four decades of excellence around three continents, introduced the dairy brand Abevia. Armed with the tagline, ‘Add Abevia, add goodness to life’, the dairy brand operates on Nutridor’s diversified portfolio and resilient product offering, coupled with value-added variety across all socio-economic segments, which add to its uniqueness.

Abevia’s repertoire of products includes evaporated milk, sweet condensed milk, drinking yoghurt, and dairy ingredients like butter, ghee, skimmed and whole milk powders, cheeses such as mozzarella, cheddar, Emmental and paneer. Each adds to their respective dishes’ sublime taste and continues to win over fans — not just Indians, but people from all over the globe.

According to CEO Sankha Biswas, Abevia evaporated milk and sweetened condensed milk are derived from the best milk ingredients in Europe and New Zealand. The uniqueness of Abevia evaporated milk is its low cholesterol formula, no added sugar or preservatives, a rich source of protein and natural milk taste. The presence of vitamins and calcium in Abevia evaporated milk further adds nutritional value to a healthy and tasty dairy product. This ensures that your next bite of barfi made with Abevia ingredients is guaranteed to be creamier and guilt-free; a perfect way to celebrate India’s Independence Day.

Abevia’s range of milk products is an ideal companion for concocting festive treats, whether you plan to cook up a sizzling pot of mutton biryani, luscious palak paneer, or even wholesome kheer.
