Halkheer aka Milk-Kheer is one of my mom's specialties. I have not had it else where. I am not sure if it is a standard recipe at all!It is kinda a hybrid between plain Milk kheer and Badam Milk..
We will need,
Milk 2 Cups + 3 tbsp
Cashew nut unsalted 4 tbsp
Coconut grated, unsweetened 4 tbsp
Sugar 2 tbsp + according to taste.
- Soak Cashew nuts in the 3 tbsp warm milk for at least two hours.
- Pulse coconut and soaked cashews + milk in a blender till very smooth.
- Pour the mixture into the remaining milk, stir in the sugar and bring it to a boil. Simmer for a few more minutes till all the flavours mingle. Remove from fire and cool. Refrigerate before serving.
- Use a few strands of saffron or a pinch of crushed cardamom for extra flavour.
