Cashew Nut Kheer/Khaju Kheer/Kaju Kheer

Cashew nut kheer is a very rich, creamy and tremendously nutty kheer one can prepare easily to surprise everyone at home. We usually make Badam/Almond kheer, vermicelli kheer,sago kheer etc, but trust me this cashew nut kheer will definitely beat all those kheers. A grounded cashew nut paste is the main ingredient for making this lipsmacking kheer, slowly cooked in whole milk with sugar and saffron gives this alluring,super rich khaju kheer. A fabulous kheer to give a try especially during festival times or else simply to serve after a feast. However this rich kheer makes an excellent summer drink too. When served chilled, one can drink a gallon of this cashew kheer without any guilt. Give a try to this different kheer and please everyone at home.

Cashew nut kheer, Khaju kheer

You might have noticed that am running this month's last week of blogging marathon with a special theme, i picked cashew nuts from the list given under this theme by Valli. After a delicious tangy cashew mango rice,today am serving you all virtually this lipsmacking, rich and very delightful kheer with cashew nuts. Cashew nuts are definitely healthy if they are consumed very less in quantity atleast once a week, eventhough they are rich in calories, they protect us from many diseases and cancers.
