Makhane ki kheer made during vrat, festival or fasting in India. In this time we make Kuttu ata puri, Sabudadana pakode, Arbi fries, Sabudana papad, Makhane ki kheer, etc. In this fast we take fruits, milk, curd, lassi in day time. In night we made different types of vrat recipes and we offer these recipes to god.
Makhane ki kheer is little sweet and delicious recipe. So I like it very much. Lots of protein and calcium avail in makhane. I have made always it in low fat milk. So it makes a creamy and yummy sweet in taste.
Puffed lotus seeds (makhanas) 1 cup
Sugar 4 tbsp or as taste
Milk 5 cups
Pure ghee 2 tbsp
Saffron 3 to 4 strands (soaked in 2 tsp milk)
Green cardamom powder 1/4 tsp
Chopped Almonds 1 tbsp
Chopped Pistachios 1 tbsp
Heat some ghee in a heavy bottomed pan on gas. Fry the makhanes in the pan. Saute till the makhanes are light brown in color. Then turned off the gas and crush the makhane slightly. Add milk and stir it continuously.
Let it simmer for about 1 to 2 minutes. Then add sugar and saffron milk. Cook it in simmer for few minutes. Mix well and remove from gas. Let it cool in room temperature and then keep it in refrigerator to chill. Serve chilled.
