Soybean Granules - 3/4 cup
Sugar - 1 cup(more or less according to your taste)
Milk - 2 cups
Evaporated Milk - 1 tin(I used Nestle Carnation Milk)
Slivered Almonds - 2 tbsp(optional, can use any nuts of your choice)
Water - 2 cups(enough to soak soy granules)
Cardamom powder - 1 tsp
- Boil enough water, soak the granules in boiled water for two-three minutes and drain them in a Colander/Muslin Cloth.
- Wash them in more water two-three times so that granules leave its
smell. Squeeze out all the water out of granules and set aside.
milk in a vessel and bring them to boil. Add Soybean granules to the
milk, stir well and let it cook for few minutes(around two-three
minutes) in medium heat.
- Add sugar and stir well and cook it for another few minutes(Say
five-seven minutes) till granules absorbs the sweetness and the milk
start to thicken a bit.
- Pour the evaporated milk, stir well and cook again in low-medium
heat for five minutes. Add the cardamom powder, stir and cook again for
few(two-three mins) more minutes.
- Take off the stove and move to individual serving bowls. Garnish
with silvered almonds and serve warm or chilled(I prefer them chilled).
- You can use condensed milk instead of carnation milk, but just make sure to reduce the sugar accordingly.
- If you do not have condensed milk or carnation milk in your pantry
no worries. Add two more cups of milk and simmer the stove to low-med
and cook for another ten minutes or till the milk start to ticken and
start to get the creamy color.
- As I mentioned before this is a great healthy dessert/kheer option
for elderly people if you can use any sugar substitute(like splenda)
since the kheer do not have any fat, carbohydrate, cholesterol content.
- This tastes great when chilled(I prefer it chilled, can serve warm as well)
