How to cook Mixed Fruit Kheer:
Mixed fruit kheer is a delightful and creamy Indian dessert made with a combination of fruits, milk, sugar, and aromatic spices. It's a refreshing twist to the traditional rice kheer. Here's a recipe for mixed fruit kheer:
- 1 liter milk
- 1 cup mixed fruits (such as chopped mangoes, bananas, apples, pomegranate seeds, grapes, etc.)
- 1/2 cup sugar (adjust to your taste)
- 1/4 cup condensed milk
- 1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder
- Few strands of saffron (optional)
- Chopped nuts for garnishing (such as almonds, pistachios, cashews)
- In a heavy-bottomed pan, bring the milk to a boil over medium heat. Stir occasionally to prevent the milk from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
- Once the milk starts boiling, reduce the heat to low and simmer the milk for about 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally. This will help thicken the milk and develop a rich flavor.
- Add the sugar to the simmering milk and stir until it dissolves completely.
- Add the condensed milk to the pan and mix well. The condensed milk adds richness and sweetness to the kheer.
- Add the cardamom powder and saffron strands (if using). Stir to incorporate the flavors.
- Turn off the heat and let the kheer cool down to room temperature.
- Once the kheer has cooled, add the mixed fruits to the pan. Gently stir to combine.
- Transfer the mixed fruit kheer to a serving bowl or individual dessert bowls.
- Garnish with chopped nuts of your choice, such as almonds, pistachios, or cashews.
- Refrigerate the kheer for a couple of hours to chill and allow the flavors to meld together.
Serve the chilled mixed fruit kheer as a refreshing and sweet dessert. It's perfect for special occasions or as a treat after a meal. Enjoy the creamy texture and the burst of fruity flavors in every spoonful!
