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.
Preparation time 10 minutes Cooking time 20 minutes Serves 4 Ingredients 200 grm chena/ homemade Indian cottage cheese 2 tbsp or to taste sweet condensed milk 4 to 5 tbsp fresh cream 1tbsp cashew paste 4 large hot gulab jamun ( store brought or if you have leftover then you may use it) 2 pinch of cardamom powder 1tsp rose water 2 pinch cardamom powder 12 to 16 rose petal Cooking MethodsHeat 1 liter of milk in a wide pan and when it comes to boil squeeze half lemon in it. Mix well and let it simmer till it is completely curdle. Switch of the flame. Now strain the cottage cheese in a muslin cloth. Bring the edges of the cloth and tie it up. Hang the cloth above the sink for half an hour. Now take the crumbled cheese in your blender add cashew paste, condensed milk, fresh cream, rose water, cardamom powder. Blend and make a fine paste like mixture. If the mixture seems too thick add 2 tbsp of milk to get the desired consistency. Let it rest in your refrigerator for 30 minutes. Now take a serving bowl ladle spoon full of chilled kheer mixture and top it with hot gulab jamun. Garnish with rose petal. The juicy gulab jamun with this creamy chilled kheer is an awesome combo. I am sure you all will love the royal flavor and the taste of gulab kheer.
