What is dry fruit kheer?

Kheer recipe is one of the easiest sweet recipes. Milk is simmered with the main and other flavoring agents and sweetened with sugar to make dry fruit kheer. This is one of the traditional dessert recipes. Rice kheer is the most commonly made kheer. Festivities and auspicious occasions seem incomplete without some kheer.

This kheer recipe is for dry fruits kheer. As the name suggests it is prepared with dry fruits, makhana is used as the thickening agent and is also the main ingredient for dry fruit kheer. Other than makhana, dry fruits such as almonds, cashews, coconut flakes, and pistachios have been used. I like to make dry fruit kheer during fasts, as it is quite filling and nutritious and keeps full for a pretty long time.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Dry Fruit Kheer recipe

Generally, kheer is a combination of milk, thickening agent and flavoring agent. Sounds technical, isn’t it? But it is very simple and easy. Semiya kheer has milk, semiya, sugar, and dry fruits; rice kheer has milk, rice, sugar, etc and so on. Still, the taste of kheer prepared by one is different from another one. Let’s see what all is required for this kheer recipe

Milk: Full cream milk works best for kheer recipes. To fasten the process of making kheer, just heat the milk in the microwave for 3 minutes and start making kheer with hot milk.

Makhana: Makhana is a superfood. It is a very healthy ingredient and is used in many recipes, especially for kids. For this kheer recipe, makhana is roasted in little ghee and used.

Dry Fruits: You can add the dry fruits of your choice. I have used almonds, cashews, pistachios and coconut flakes. You can add or omit dry fruits as per your choice.

Flavoring: I have flavored the dry fruit kheer with cardamom powder. You can also add in a few saffron strands (kesar).

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
