Its It was Woman's day... and its it was holi too... on the whole it was a very colorful day yesterday. Hope all you guys had a blast celebrating. I wanted to get home early and make something pink as a celebration for the day.. Something elegant and colorful was the plan. The second option was making the authentic Thandai. Thanks to the unannounced arrival of tasks, I turned up late and all my plans were doomed. So made this simple yet flavorful kheer which was wiped clean off the glass after our dinner. Haven't dropped the plan of making Thandai and the elegant dish.. Will try them this weekend. ;)
Carrots - 2
Almonds - 6-8
Sugar - 2 tbsp
Saffron threads - a pinch(optional)
Cardamom powder - a pinch
Milk - 3 cups
How I Made it:
Soak the saffron in warm milk for 15 mins. Discard the saffron threads and reserve the milk. You can skip this step if you need a simple kheer. Blanch the almonds in warm water for 10 mins and remove the skin. Pressure cook the carrots for 2 whistles.
Heat milk in a non-stick pan and reduce to 2/3rd of the original quantity(it should be thick but not too thick so 2/3 rd was the right consistency for me). Bring to room temperature.
In a blender, add the carrots and almonds along with some milk, sugar and cardamom powder. Blend till you get a smooth mixture. Now add the remaining milk and saffron milk and blend till smooth. Chill for 2-3 hours.
So thats it Folks...
Have a great weekend guys!!!
