Gulab Kheer (Delicious Rose Flavored Indian Dessert)

This is my special Diwali sweet recipe for all my friends. Kheer is specially a traditional South Asian dish made by boiling rice or broken wheat. But today’s delicacy is bit different from the regular kheer. Today's gulab kheer is a fusion of North Indian gulab jamun and a bit Bengali cuisine. It is quick and easy to make and especially for those who are always on the go and don’t have time to do elaborate cooking. This could be a very delicious royal quick way to please your friends and family during the festive season.
