Indian Dessert – Savaiya / Kheer / Pudding
Posted May 19, 2009on:
Indians are famous for sweet tooth, and since its a country abound in different cultures, there are wide variety of delicious desserts to savour from. This is one of my favourite recipes and pretty easy to make – Sevaiya or Kheer or pudding. its a thick milk based dish.
1 cup Sevaiya / Noodles(prefer wheat noodles)
Half litre Milk
¼ gm sugar
Finely slited almonds, pistachios, cashews
Heat a pan on the gas. Pour 2 spoons ghee on the heated pan. Add the sevaiya and roast till the colour changes. Remove and keep aside. Heat the milk, bringing to a boil. As soon as it comes to boiling point add the almonds, pistachios, cashews, cardamom powder, saffron, sugar. Boil on slow gas for 15-20 mins. Once the milk becomes little thick or changes colour add the sevaiya. Cook for another 15-20 mins. Can serve chilled or hot.
PS : Optionally instead of sevaiya you use rice or sago seeds also. The preparation with sago seeds is same except you don’t fry them in ghee, just soak them in water for 1/2 hr.
If you are making rice kheer, add the rice along with the nuts and let the rice cook in the milk.
