Sooji kheer|Semolina kheer

Kheer is one traditional Indian sweet that symbolizes emotions.Right from the child is born to his naming ceremony,his first feed of solid foods,school admission ,result day ,college admission ,graduation .....etc kheer is an eternal part of Indian celebrations.kheer is a form of expressing love to your beloved.During the 90's there were'nt much take away options and it was considered unhealthy to have the store bought sweets all the time.Hence kheer was the easiest option available, made and served.Generally kheer is made with rice but it can easily substituted with semolina or sooji for a quick version .Compared to rice kheer ,sooji/semolina kheer is much easier and quick to cook.except the cooling part every thing comes together in 20 minutes .So next time you are having impromptu guest don't worry this kheer will come to rescue and I guarantee you clean licked bowls.


  1. Make sure you are sauteing(bhuno)  the sooji well to avoid lumps.
  2. Always use full fat milk for rich taste.
  3. Use Bombay rava for this kheer not the finer chiroti rava.
  4. Kheer thickens upon cooling so switch of the flame while it is still soupy.
  5. If the kheer thickens add some milk to loosen it.
  6. Add any nuts of your choice ,I have just used cashew nuts.
