CARAMEL KHEER

Caramel Kheer  is an innovative  dessert that can be made during festivites and celebrations. As Raksha Bandhan is here, I am here today with the easy and tasty kheer  to rekindle the relationship of brothers and sisters. Raksha means “bond of protection” and is celebrated on the full moon day of the Hindu month of Shravana, which falls usually in the month of August.  Any festival would be incomplete with sweets and here I am today with one such recipe. I made this super quick with my new addition in the kitchen. I have with me now Nielep’s cooking ranges….

BROWN RICE KHEER

I have never tried kheer with brown rice though I make rice based payasam or kheer during festivities or when guests drop over.Brown Rice Kheer was a recipe I stumpled upon when I searching for recipes using brown rice.Brown rice is actually whole grain rice with the outer hull removed.It is not polished and has a nutty flavour and is chewier than white rice hence considered very healthy.It has a good source of magnesium, phosphorous, selenium and Vitamin B6.Also, jaggery has a good source of iron and is much better option than sugar.I made this recipe long back during winter.I…
