Simple recipe! However, when I tried your recipe, it gives the raw smell of khus khus. What I do is to roast poppy seeds instead of soaking it; then grind it with fresh coconut, and roasted cashews. I boil this ground paste in milk for 4 minutes. When the milk is warm, I add the jaggery syrup (jaggery heated with a little water and then filtered). Add Elaichi for flavor.
Thanks for the comments! This kheer is “no-cook” recipe. Its more like a refreshing drink which involves NO cooking. Since we do not cook/roast the ingredients we retain the nutrients 🙂
Yes I also make the khus khus kheer as you have mentioned and it tastes great too!
