Ingredients for wheat kheer

Whole Wheat                                   1 cup

Jaggery                                              1.5 cup

Skimmed milk                                  1/5 Litre

Freshly grated coconut                   1 cup

Rice                                                     2-3 Table spoons

For garnishing

Cashew                                              .

Nutmeg

Cardamom (Elaichi) Powder

 Method of preparing wheat kheer

Wash the whole wheat and soak it in very little water (just about soaking the wheat – ½ to 3/4th cup) for 4 hours.

Whip this into a dry grinder, making sure that the each wheat grain is broken approximately into 2 or 3 pieces. Ensure that you do NOT grind the wheat into a coarse powder.

Add the washed rice to this broken wheat mixture.

Soak this mixture (broken wheat and rice) in 2 cups of water for overnight, about 8 – 10 hours.

Cook this mixture with water in a pressure cooker for about 10 – 12 minutes (3- 4 whistles), till the wheat becomes soft.

Add milk to this cooked wheat mixture and let it boil well.

Now add jaggery and coconut to it and let it simmer for 2 minutes. Stir it well.

Cook the entire kheer properly and add cardamom powder & nutmeg powder while cooking. Stir well again.

Garnish it with cashew flakes and roasted khus-khus while serving.

This kheer can be served hot or even enjoyed as cold desert.
