Dried fruit is fruit from which the majority of the original water content has been removed either naturally, through sun drying, or through the use of specialized dryers or dehydrators. It is a known fact that dry fruits and nuts are packed with essential nutrients. Though available in small packages, they are an abundant source of proteins, vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber. Right from skin benefits to medicinal benefits. With high iron levels, dry fruits like raisins, and apricots are essentials to fight or prevent anemia. Dry fruits have optimal levels of vitamins and minerals, and are a natural solution for weight management. There are so many delicious recipes which we can make from dried fruits, But Kheer is all time favorite for me and family. Kheer is a rice pudding from the cuisine of the Indian Subcontinent, made by boiling rice, Broken wheat, tapioca, or vermicelli with milk and sugar; it is flavored with cardamom, raisins, saffron, cashews, pistachios or almonds. It is typically served during a meal or as a dessert.
Kheer is prepared in festivals, temples, and all special occasions. It is often garnished using almonds, cashews, raisins and pistachios. It is an essential dish in many Hindu feasts and celebrations. While the dish is most often made with rice, it can also be made with other ingredients, such as vermicelli. This Kheer is different from the regular version. It contains Dry fruits, and Sweet fruit crush, Which I have decided to take cherry. Yeah, You reading it right, Its Cherry :) Well, Here in Doha, I can easily get Cherry crush in small and big both the bottles, Its sweet and so so delicious, Sometimes I simply spread on my Bread, roll it and I enjoy it ...Ahhh, I am writing it and felling like to have it right away...Well, will get it after finishing my this post, ;)
