rajgira kheer, amaranth kheer recipe

this is one of the most tastiest kheer, i made with amaranth. unlike other kheers or puddings which are smooth to the palate, this one has a crunchy texture. this crunch comes from the amaranth grains and it this crunch that does make this kheer different from other kheers.

i make this kheer similar to the samvat rice kheer (barnyard millet pudding) i prepare. here, i have cooked the amaranth grains in a pressure cooker to save time. however, you can also cook them in a pan. it will just take about 25 to 30 minutes for them to cook in a pan. do try this sweet dessert for navratri and you will love it.

serve amaranth kheer plain or with some rajgira pooris or singhare ki poori. you can serve this kheer hot, warm or chilled.
