Apple Kheer Recipe

Giving the #BlogchatterA2Z Β challenge a kick-start with this absolutely delicious Apple Kheer Recipe| #BlogchatterA2Z. In India, all good things are started by something sweet and that is what I am doing today. Kheer or Rice pudding is a universal favourite but I had to start with the letter A, so I gave the recipe a twist and made Apple Kheer. The regular rice kheer has just got a makeover with the apple fruit. Apple kheer is an ingenious change from the traditional Indian dessert with the crunchy fruitiness of apples, almonds, heady aroma of cardamom, punch from the cinnamon and sweetness from Demerara sugar and the cherry on top is a fat, luscious red grape.

Pricey Apples

An apple a day keeps the doctor away is what we grew up hearing. Apples these days have become so expensive. I picked up two for the kheer at the supermarket and didn’t check the price. I went home and glanced at the bill; It was shocking to see two medium-sized apples for INR 81. Having an apple a day is surely going to burn your pocket.

I make really good kheer but I can never beat the taste of the rice kheer made in the Gurudwara. It is as if it has a divine hand in making it and the taste is always heavenly.

You can grate the apples too but I like the crunch from the chopped pieces.

Nuts could be cashews, pistachios or walnuts.
