Gajar and Phool makhana Kheer

"Kheer" or Indian rice pudding flavoured with cardamom, various nuts and saffron , certainly rich in flavour and creamy in texture. Luscious and divine desserts for one and all..In India kheer is prepared on almost every Hindu festival- Kheer considered as holy dessert for Prasad. Indian kheer is little different from the rice pudding other parts of the world in the sense that it is without egg and salt. Each culture seems to have their own unique version of it !!

In today's dessert I have decided to use carrots and phool makhana, both ingredients are very healthy, only if eaten on their own,but when cooked in heavy cream and sugar it only becomes a sinful dessert, which I don't mind to indulge in

You will need:-
  • 3 cup milk
  • 1 cup cream
  • 50 g rice ( I used basmati rice )
  • 1 medium carrots peeled and grated
  • 1/4 cup crushed fox nuts ( you can use whole too )
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp kewra or rose water
  • 3-4 tbsp chopped pistachio
  • 1/2 tsp crushed cardamom seeds
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg powder
  • 1 tbsp ghee

Wash rice in cold water and leave it aside to soak in little water for half an hour.
Heat ghee in a heavy bottom pan or non stick pan on a medium heat.
Add grated carrots and fry for 3-4 minutes.
Now add crushed makhana and fry for 3-4 minutes with carrots.
Pour  the milk and let come to a boil, lower the heat.
Drain the water from the rice and add into milk.
Add the sugar.
Stir and simmer the kheer till  rice if fully cooked mixture gets thicken.
Pour cream and cook further 2-3 minutes.
Turn of the heat. Add crushed cardamom and nutmeg powder.
Let it cool a bit, add kewra water.
Serve in a serving bowl, garnish with chopped pistachio.
