This heavenly dessert requires milk, sugar and cardamom powder mainly. It is quite popular in all Indian sweet shops. It is often difficult to make at home because it needs continuous stirring.
However, there is a quicker way. All you need is condensed milk and paneer.
Pour the condensed milk into a pan and mix in the crumbled homemade paneer. Keep it on a low flame and keep stirring. Cook it until it starts to thicken, then reduce the flame to low and keep stirring. When it gets thick and begins to leave the sides, turn the flame off. Add cardamom powder and mix. Take it out in a dish and sprinkle some nuts. Refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours and then cut and serve.
Made with rice, milk, dry fruits, cardamom and saffron, Kheer is one of the most delicious Indian desserts. It is popular across the country with the South Indian version being Rice Payasam.
To make rice kheer, you boil the milk, add rice and keep stirring on a low flame. Cook until it’s soft and add sugar. Add nuts and cardamom once it achieves a thick consistency. Your Kheer is ready for serving.
Shrikhand is a creamy, thick dessert that is made with hung curd, crushed almonds, cardamom and saffron. It comes in different flavours including mango, Kesar etc. Shrikhand and Puri is one of the best combinations amongst the Indian desserts.
Mix some saffron in 2-3 tablespoons of milk and let it infuse for a while. Then pour it over the hung curd and add sugar, elaichi powder and cardamom as per your taste. Mix the batter till it’s smooth, then serve.
Famous in North India, this sweet thickened milk has layers of malai or cream in it and is flavoured with saffron and dry fruits.
Boil milk on medium heat, and keep stirring. Keep moving the frothy cream formation on top to the side. Keep stirring and collecting the cream as the milk starts reducing. Then add sugar, saffron, cardamom and continue to stir gently. As the colour starts to turn yellow and the quantity reduces to half, turn off the flame. You’ll see the cream collected on the sides. Scrape it and mix it with the thickened milk. Then add almonds, pistachios etc. and serve.
