Rava (Sooji) Kheer

It’s another yummy healthy kheer which is very good option as there are minimal ingredients just rava, milk and sugar plus some dry fruits, ghee.This makes a wonderful dessert and this takes very less time, just make in advance and you can also keep in fridge to serve chilled, or before serving just warm up also add some milk since this kheer gets thicken quickly.Don't roast semolina/rava until it gets brown, but roast only until aroma starts to come.

Its simple understanding, cooking time of sooji is very less as they are fine particles and therefore it even absorbs sugar quickly without any delay. It was truly a wonderful experience for me to feel the joy of sharing. The taste of this sooji kheer was absolutely delicious. The smell of the cashews roasted in ghee and the chironji added toward the end gives a nice aroma making it different from other kheer.
