A soulful sweet dessert relished by everyone at home which is non-other than our all time favourite Kheer. Well, the creaminess and flavours of kheer provoke your senses to devour it ravishingly and so........ it enlightened me to try out a different version this time in my experimental kitchen laboratory. Charismatic cherries are blooming in the stores and consuming it as a regular fruit and juice it's time to trigger our senses with a new version of cherry in form of kheer.
