Eid Special Kheer – Lazeez-E-Millet Kheer
- 1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 cup cooked little millet, samai
- 1 tsp pure saffron strands
- 3 tbsp chopped nuts, almonds and pistachios
- 2 tsp pumpkin seeds to garnish
- 1 tbsp organic jaggery powder/2 tbsp dates purée
- Heat the almond milk.
- Once it starts boiling, add the saffron and nuts.
- Now add the cooked little millet (samai). Let it boil for 2 minutes.
- Add the nuts and organic jaggery powder/dates purée.
- Turn off the heat. Garnish with pumpkin seeds.
- Serve hot. Enjoy.
Power tips and variations
- You can use hand-pounded rice or rice vermicelli instead of little millet (samai) too.
- For a quick consistency check, take some kheer in a spoon and pour it back. If it drops together in a pan, it means the kheer is ready. But if the milk and rice separate, then cook it some more time.
- Make your own almond milk at home with these steps:
- Soak 10-12 almonds overnight.
- Next day, discard the water and blenderize the soaked almonds using a bit of water to make a fine paste.
- Then add a glass of water to get a thin consistency of milk. Do not sieve (keep the fiber intact).
- Your almond milk is ready.
- This little millet kheer is great for diabetics as it is low in glycemic index (GI). Rightly called Nutri cereals, these are rich in antioxidants, polyphenols, and phytochemicals.
- Almond milk is an excellent source of vitamin E, which helps protect and boost heart health.
