Garvanu ~ Wheat Flour Kheer

For Day 2 of BM #45, here is another festival dessert!! This is a traditional Gujarati dessert which is a great idea to make for festivals or to offer Naivedyam(Prasad). It is a very filling and healthy snack too. I like this as very little sugar is needed to make it mildly sweet and filling.

I had to make this twice on the same day as my little one refused to have her dinner unless I make this once more :). So you get the point, right?

Garvanu ~ Wheat Flour Kheer

Recipe adapted from here and here
Ingredients - 

Wheat Flour 1/4 tsp
Ghee 1 tsp
Milk 2 cups
Sugar 2-3 Tbsp (adjust as per taste)
Cinnamon Powder 1/4 tsp (Optional)
Cardamom Powder 1/2 tsp
MTR Badam Mix 1 tsp (Optional)
Nuts and Raisins as needed

Garvanu ~ Wheat Flour Kheer

Method Of Preparation -

In a heated pan, add ghee and fry the wheat flour until it gives out a nice aroma or until it turns a shade of golden brown.

Remove from heat and let it cool. My kids didn't have the patience to wait for it to cool, so I put the hot wheat flour and cold milk in the blender and took it out to get a lump free mixture.

Put this mixture back in the pan on low to medium heat.

Stirring continuously add the cinnamon powder, coarsely crushed nuts and sugar (also if using MTR Badam Mix, now is the time to add it).

After it comes to a boil, reduce the heat to low. Sprinkle cardamom powder.

Keep stirring to avoid burnt kheer. After about 2 minutes, remove from heat, garnish with nuts and serve warm.

Preparation Time 15 min
Makes 1 1/2 cups
