I am not much of a dessert person, I don't eat dessert often, it's only once in blue moon, I feel like having something sweet. I find this one the most easiest kheer to make, takes hardly 15-20 mins and tastes pretty good too.


1. Heat 2 tsp of clarified butter/ghee, fry 2 tsp each of cashew nuts & raisins for 2 minutes. keep it aside.

2. In the same pan, add little ghee (if required) and roast 1 cup of vermicelli on a low flame, till it turns light brownish in colour for 3-4 minutes.

3. Meanwhile in another heavy bottom pan, boil 4 cups of milk.

4. Once the milk starts to bubble, pour it over the pan in which vermicelli are being roasted.

5. Add 1 bay leaf and 1/2 tsp cardamom powder, stir it well on a low flame for about 6-7 minutes.

6. Simultaneously add 3/4 to 1 cup of sugar in another pan and melt the sugar, keep stirring it on a low flame. once the sugar dissolves completely and turns out golden brownish in colour, pour it over the pan where vermicelli & milk are being cooked.

7. Now add the fried cashew nuts & raisins, add some chopped almonds (optional) and cook it for another 3-4 minutes and it's ready.

8. Garnish it with some chopped almonds, pista and cherry and enjoy.
