Kheer, kheer & kheer!
Life would become so dull and monotonous without this sticky, gooey & sweet delicacy, which has been bringing a smile on our faces since its inception. Being an Indian, and being brought up like every other Indian kid, I have been familiar with the various types of kheer. Starting from rice, semolina, vermicelli and so on and so forth. But the most important thing is the memories related to it. I am a sweet tooth, and literally, like every other sweet, but none can take the place of kheer ever. Then there comes a time when we start worrying about our health & weight and thereby start making the distance from those memory-laden delicacies. So, I came up with this simple & healthy recipe of Makhane ki kheer, to be the dessert perfect this festive season, and for re-living those lovely memories.
