How to make Moong Daal Payesh/Kheer

  2. Mash the cooked daal soft into a paste.
  3. Add 3\4 cup of sugar .
  4. Mix it well and boil it. Meanwhile stir the mixture in between otherwise the daal may get burnt at the bottom.Until it gets reduced to 3\4 .
  5. By now the rawness of daal goes and both daal and milk gets blended well.
  6. Add saffron and stir well.
  7. Add a pinch of nutmeg powder and elaichi powder.
  8. Add chopped badam/ almonds and pista to the kheer
  9. Now in a kadai add 1 tbsp of ghee and add the cashew nuts and chironji seeds and fry them.
  10. Add a little rose water
  11. Serve hot or cold .

My Tip:

You can use full cream milk to the kheer for better taste. If you like the flavour of roasted coconut then you may add fresh chopped coconut flakes fried in ghee and add. You can omit rose water if you wish
