Dates (Khajur) Kheer Recipe by Vari Shah 423 days ago

Dates (Khajur) Kheer
Dates / Khajur make a delicious and healthy recipe.
    Preparation Method
  1. Wash the dates thoroughly and chop fine.
  2. Bring the milk to a boil and allow to simmer.
  3. Prepare saffron by rubbing it in 1tsp warm milk until the milk turns orange. Set aside.
  4. In a thick bottomed pan, heat ghee, add dates and sauté for 2 minutes over low flame. Sprinkle wheat flour over the dates and sauté for another minute.
  5. Now slowly add the milk, stirring continuously to avoid lumps and continue cooking over low flame for 7 – 8 minutes. Dates add their own sweetness to this kheer, but if you like it sweeter, add a dash of powdered rock sugar.
  6. Stir the prepared saffron into the kheer along with the nutmeg and cardamom powder. Switch off flame
    Additional Note
  • Dates serve as thirst quenchers, body energizers, aphrodisiacs and also help increase the levels of haemoglobin. They are sweet and have a post digestive effect.
