Cracked Wheat & Jackfruit Kheer

Cracked wheat is a wheat product made from whole raw wheat kernels which are crushed or cut into smaller pieces.Because cracked wheat is made from whole wheat berries, it carries a great deal of nutrition and fiber since it includes the fiber and nutrient rich outer bran and germ of the wheat. For this reason, it is often added to healthy diets, especially those eaten by people who are concerned about heart health...Many people use it as a base, like couscous, serving vegetables or meats alongside it. It can also be used in grain pilafs in which many recipes for multi-grain pilaf call for cracked wheat, since it is fluffy and flavorful. Many people also include cracked wheat in multi-grain bread, pancakes, and other grain dishes. My usual purchasing in Indian groceries goes automatically for whole wheat flour, cracked wheat, barley meal etc...I fond always for the jackfruits, but its really hard to find them  fresh, so i'll go for canned one..I prepared this simple but healthy cracked wheat and jackfruit kheer sterday, coz its quite a special day for me and my H..This flavourful kheer tastes excellent at the same time, its very quick to prepare...

Cracked Wheat & Jackfruit Kheer

1/4cup Cracked wheat
2cups Milk
1/4cup Sweetened condensed milk
1/2cup Jackfruit (chopped)
10nos Saffron strands
1tsp Cardamom powder
Few almond flakes & Pistachios

Heat the milk,saffron strands and sweetened condensed milk together, meanwhile wash the cracked wheat, drain the excess of water using a strainer, add this washed cracked wheat to the boiling milk,put immediately the flame in simmer, cook until the cracked wheat get cooked..add immediately the chopped jackfruits, cardamom powder, cook everything for few minutes..Put off the stove..

Serve warm, garnished with almond flakes and pistachios..

It's a very lovely and exquisite kheer! With cracked wheat, it must be really healthy! I'm a big fan of jack-fruit and in my childhood days, I used to have a jack-fruit tree which grew the fruits of the size of a pillow!

Priya (Yallapantula) Mitharwal said... Reply To This Comment

Priya, this combination has seriously amazed me because I never thought or heard of it before. Lovely combo. I am guessing you are not using raw jackfruit and the real fruit. Simply great looking. I don't like jackfruit, so not sure if I will attempt, but surely can try adding another fruit and making a different version of it :)

Thanks for the idea.
