Quinoa & Moongdal Kheer

Have you ever heard about quinoa and moongdal together in kheer?? am damn sure that u never heard about so, thats y i tried this combination for the first time day before sterday for our lunch as i had some sudden visit from my relatives..Quickly i prepared some ghee rice with paneer butter masala and as dessert i served this droolworthy kheer and for the first time they came to know about quinoa, am glad that they had and learned about this healthy grain through me and also i insisted them to use atleast once a while in their menu..Coming to this kheer, its really very quick and gets ready with less time and less ingredients, i used sweetened condensed milk for making this kheer..In case if u dont have condensed milk, u can go for thick milk and sugar..Sending to CWF-Quinoa guest hosted by Priya Mitharwal..

Quinoa & Moongdal Kheer

1/2cup Quinoa
1/2cup Yellow moong dal
1/2cup Sweetened condensed milk
Few saffron strands
1tsp Ghee
10nos Cashew nuts
1tsp Cardamom powder

Pressure cook quinoa, moong dal with 2cups of water upto 3whistles..once the steam get released, pour the cooked quinoa and moong dal in a pan, add the sweetened condensed milk, saffron strands, water (as u desire), bring boil everything, meanwhile heat the ghee and fry the cashew nuts until they turns golden brown..add to the kheer, put off the stove and finally add the cardamom powder..

Enjoy warm or cold..
