Poppy Seeds Kheer

Poppy seeds are usually used in masala also its one of most important ingredients of garam masala powder used in our daily cooking and very much in North Indian dishes...This poppy seeds kheer is quite popular of Kannadigas of Bangalore eventhough its one of my favourite kheer which i used to prepare often as i learned it from my MIL..This kheer goes for simple ingredients and quite a delicious kheer to enjoy anytime..I prepared this kheer by dry roasting poppy seeds, raw rice and cashew nuts together, which is grinded laterly and cooked in coconut milk and sugar..Easy breezy kheer which gets ready very quickly also gets vanished in less time..You can also go very well for canned coconut milk, if u dont like to make fresh coconut milk at home for making this kheer..Sending to CWS-Poppy Seeds guest hosted by Sudeshna of Cook Like A Bong, event started by me also to Celebrate Sweet-Kheers guest hosted by Umm, event by Nivedita and finally to Only Festive Food Event guest hosted by Preeti, event by Pari..
