Happy New Year dear friends…

May this New Year be filled with all that is
 best and
beautiful in life…

Today is a day for celebrations. Not only is it the dawn of
a brand new year, today also happens to be my blogs birthday. Around this time
in 2008, I sat down to write  my first
blog post. I was not sure how long I would be able to go on with this but it was
really exciting. I was eagerly expecting the arrival of Lil Angel and I remember thinking if the blog would stand the test of time. But 5 years
[and 2 kids ] later, I still have the same amount of excitement and enthusiasm
as I did on the day I published the first post.All these years, it was possible to carry on because of you.
A huge THANK YOU for support and wishes.
To celebrate this special day, a simple kheer from my
kitchen.It has become a sort of tradition to celebrate the New Year and Blog
Anniversary with a dessert and this time I opted for this quick dish.
I used:
Grated beetroot – 1 cup
Milk -3oo ml or more
Sugar – ¼ cup, adjust to taste
Cardamom powder- a pinch
Cashew nut bits – to garnish
Ghee – 1 tablespoon
  1. Heat ghee in a pan and roast the cashews till golden brown
    .Drain and keep aside
  2. In the same pan, put in the beetroot and sauté on medium
    flame for 5-8 minutes.
  3. Add the milk and sugar and simmer till the beetroot is
  4. Add more milk if required.Sprinkle the cardamom powder and remove from heat.
  5. Serve warm . cold garnished with roasted cashews.

Note :
  • You can cook and grind the beetroot before adding to milk.
  • Soak a few cashews / almonds  and a teaspoon of  poppy seeds for a couple of hours. Grind it to a smooth paste and add to the mixture. The kheer will be extra delicious….
Have a happy and healthy year ahead….
