BM #98 Week 3 Day 2 - 

Here is another kheer which comes handy on a festival day and fit for a party as well.

I found that soaking almonds, removing the skin and making a paste to use in the kheer is a very tedious process when making the kheer for a crowd. So I tried using the blanched almond flour which is commercially available and it turned out to be a blessing.

I made this a while ago to offer as Prasadam and so the measurements are for a large crowd. Please scale it down as needed.

Ingredients -

Sago / Saggubiyyam 1 cup
Almond Flour 2 cups
Milk 8 cups
Sugar 1 1/2 cup (adjust as per taste)

Semiya / Vermicelli 1/2 cup
Ghee 1 tsp 

Cashews and Raisins 1/4 cup each

Method Of Preparation -

Wash sago and pressure cook with 2 cups of water for 15 minutes.

Boil milk and add the almond flour, sugar and the pressure cooked sago.

Add in the roasted semiya and let the kheer simmer.

Meanwhile, heat a teaspoon of ghee in a small pan and roast the cashews and raisins.

Add them to them simmering kheer.

Remove the kheer from heat and serve it warm or chilled.


Preparation Time 45 minutes
Makes 10-12 cups
