Here’s a small twist on a familiar dish. Wheat kheer is a typical ethnic dish among indians. I have tried a variation in this using wheat flour instead of whole wheat and it turned out very good. I call it wheat flour payasa or wheat flour kheer. Its a delicious and sumptuous dessert with lot of cashews and raisins and also very easy to make.
Let’s enter the kitchen-:)
- 1 cup wheat flour
- 1/2 cup cashew nuts or almonds
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 12 oz coconut milk (1 tin)
- 1/2 cup milk (optional)
- Jaggery for sweet (1/2 cup)
- Pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp of clarified butter (ghee)
- 1 to 2 cups water
- 1/2 cardamom powder
- In a medium vessel, fry wheat flour with 2 tsp of ghee or butter over medium heat till you get nice aroma from the wheat.
- Mix the fried wheat flour in a bowl with 1/2 cup water . Stir it nicely to remove the lumps, add more water if required.
- In a separate vessel, boil the milk and about 1 cup water.
- Add the wheat flour paste to the boiling milk. Stir well until it boils.
- Add Jaggery, coconut milk and pinch of salt.
- You can change the consistency by adding water. (Note: if you add more water, add appropriate amount of Jaggery to sweeten it)
- In a separate frying pan, roast cashew nuts and raisins separately with about 1 tbsp of ghee.
- Add the cashews and raisins to the main dish when it begins to boil.
- Add cardamom powder for flavor.
Wheat flour kheer / payasa is best served hot or chilled.
