Diwali Special Sweet Recipes
Kheer is a milky dessert made using milk, dry fruits, sugar, and rice. However, rice can be replaced with other ingredients such as vermicelli (sewaiyaan), sago (sabudana) etc and that’s what brings us here to the collection of kheer recipes. The best thing that I like about kheer is that it can be served warm, at room temperature or chilled. Apart from that, it doesn’t ask for too much involvement. Add ingredients-simmer-repeat! Kheer is just perfect for festivals which often include pooja and what better than kheer for bhog and Prasad and our indulgence.
Kheer is all about perfect consistency and sweetness. And the choice of both varies from person to person. If you like your kheer creamy, as in kheer will be creamy if made right, if you like it creamier you can add homemade condensed milk to it. If you like it a bit grainy, you can add some homemade khoya or instant khoya.
