How to make Makhane Di Kheer

  1. In a heavy bottom non-stick pan. Add ghee, to this add makhane, saute over a low flame to give it a light golden colour. Remove and keep aside.
  2. In the same pan add milk & bring to a boil. When milk starts to boil add condensed milk simmer for 20 minutes stirring continuously, so that the milk does not burn.
  3. When it thickens a little, add the lotus seeds & cook for 5 minutes on medium heat. Keep stirring occasionally, till the lotus seeds are cooked and milk is reduced. Add sugar and cardamom powder.
  4. Add the slivered pistachio nuts and Almonds. Remove from the flame. Add screwpine flower water (Kewra). Mix well.
  5. For serving: Transfer it to the serving dish. Serve Hot or Cold, as desired. Apply silver leaf (Chandi ka varq) and sprinkle slivered almonds, pistachio nuts and broiled saffron.

My Tip:

Do not brown the lotus seeds, as it will hamper the beautiful appearance of the kheer. Keep on stirring the milk , to prevent it from burning. You can first let the milk boil and then thicken on a slow flame. You may add 02 tbsp. of khoya, if condensed milk is not available at home. You may add ½ tbsp. of blanched chironji ,if desired. You may serve it Hot/ Warm or CHILLED.
