My mother tried it once and it was a bumper hit. An yummy and creamy dessert that can be made in a very simple way.Sharing that recipe here.

  • Semiya/Vermicelli-1/4 cup

7.Keep stirring until it dissolves.

8.When it thickens switch off and add roasted cashews and nuts.

9.Add coconut milk/milk after removing it from the gas stove.

10.Stir well and serve it luke warm.


This is usually a festive recipe and hence we add milk while we are about to serve.

There is another version which I make by cooking in milk directly. I shall post it soon.

This can be given for babies as well.Avoid milk for less 1 year and use coconut milk above 7 months.

The quantity of palm sugar depends on your taste and quality of it.

I have powdered and sieved palm sugar before adding to the kheer.

Use thick coconut milk.

The images contain kheer with no milk added too(step 8).

Be sure to buy semolina made of durum wheat.
