How To Make Almond Cashew Kheer?
ALMOND CASHEW KHEER- AN EASY DELICIOUS DESSERT WITH CASHEWS AND ALMONDS.
Because its birthday time and because little A is here, i will share the recipe first and then go on to the giveaway. This recipe is a no brainer dessert recipe that can be eaten hot, warm or cold. Its the onset of winter in most places in the world. So where ever you live, make some almond cashew kheer and enjoy it warm if the weather has that nip in the air. Or if you happen to live in a mundane city ( do cities get called mundane? i m not sure. But anyways, for lack of a better word) like me, then chill this in the fridge and eat it as many times as you want. Only make sure your husband doesnt catch you eating his share. ( That s what happened in the Praveen household, by the way)

2. Using full fat milk gives a creamy texture to the kheer and its strongly recommended.
Grind together the almonds and cashews coarsely adding about ¼ c of milk. We just dont want a smooth paste. A few bits lurking here and there will add a nice crunch while eating.
Once done, heat a thick bottomed pan with the ghee.
Now, add the raisins and fry till fluffed up and golden.
To the same pan, add cardamom powder and saute for 10 secs.
Turn off the flame.
Immediately tip in the ground paste and stir well.
Turn on the flame to a medium and constantly stir the mixture until it absorbs all the ghee. Takes about 7 mins
At this stage, add the sugar and condensed milk and mix well.
Turn down the flame to the lowest and let simmer for about 5 to 6 mins.
Now add the milk and mix well.
Simmer further for 5 mins on medium flame.
Add the raisins at the end and mix well.
Serve hot or cold.
And that s it. The kheer is done.
