I had read this recipe at someone's blog about a year ago. I am not able to give the full credits because I don't remember where I saw it. However, I will claim that this is not my original recipe and I read it somewhere almost a year ago and wanted to try it but couldn't get around it until now. Gladly, I remembered what I had to use in order to make this delicious kheer.
This is a must try! My Dad loved this so much that he now every now and then asks me to make it. He even praises it in front of his friends so much that all those uncles are now asking me to make some for them as well. This dish is also health and I plan to make it throughout Ramadan to give us energy while we fast. This dish will also make a nice presentation on Eid as well.
- Two cups almonds - soaked in warm water overnight
- Three to five tsp of milk
