Kheer (Shevayanchi Kheer)

This recipe belongs to one of my best friends Nandu (Nandini Kulkarni) who is a very good cook. I wanted to make kheer since many days, but didnt get time. Finally this saturday, I tried and turned out awesommeee..
In traditional recipe, we use to heat milk till it is half in quantity. However, the process is very time consuming. Adding condensed milk will save time and also give yummy taste to kheer.

One again Thank you Nandu for sharing this special recipe with me.

Ingredients :
1 litre full cream milk
1/2 cup vermiceilli (shevayan)

1 tin condensed milk (sweetened)
1 1/2 tbspns pure ghee
1/4 cup soaked and chopped almonds
1/4 cup soaked cashews
7-8 strings saffron (soaked in milk)

Preparation :

Heat ghee in a pan
Add vermiceilli to the ghee
Fry vermiceilli till it is golden brown in colour
Then add boiling milk to the vermiceilli
Allow it to cook till the vermiceilli is soft
This process takes approximately 10 minutes
Then add chopped almonds and cashews to the kheer
Allow it to cook
Then add condensed milk to the kheer
Stir the entire mixture
Finally add soaked saffron strings
Take off from the heat
Serve it either hot or chilled

Notes :
Since sweetened condensed milk has been used in recipe, sugar is not used.
You may also add milk masala to kheer to make it more rich
