What is Sugar Free Kheer?

Kheer is a pudding made using milk, rice (most commonly) and sugar (most importantly). But with the sugar free kheer recipe, we will be changing all the equations. As evident from the name, no sugar is added but the kheer is sweet. It gets its flavors and sweetness from nuts and dry fruits. Dates are used that make it sugary and fox nuts and other nuts give the required bite. It is a very different recipe but it tastes divine and needless to mention it is very healthy.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Sugar Free Kheer Recipe

Sugar free kheer is a combination of milk, nuts and dry fruits. Little cinnamon and cardamom are also added. Needless to mention the reason of adding cardamom, there can be a sugar free kheer recipe but there can’t be a kheer recipe without cardamom, after all, it complements the flavors of kheer so well. Cinnamon and dates make a great combination, therefore cinnamon is added. Fox nuts are roasted and ground to give body to the kheer.

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!.
