There's something about Indian desserts that no one can ever resist. From piping hot halwa to decadent gulab jamun or the coiled jalebi, the mere mention is enough for anyone to slurp a little. Indians have a strong penchant for sweets, not only are they a staple post dinner in our homes, they are also offered in our places of worship. And, guess what? Even our celebrities cannot have them enough! Just like Karisma Kapoor who recently took to Instagram to share her love for our very own traditional kheer.
Kheer or phirni is a satiating bowl of rice or vermicelli cooked in milk, sweetened and finished with a hearty addition of nuts and dry fruits. It is known with different names in different regions. While the north Indians would love to gorge on classic kheer, south Indians take immense pride in payasam. Our Bollywood diva Karisma Kapoor shared a video of a bowl full of what looked like saffron kheer topped with a generous amount of nuts. She shared a poll along with it asking her followers, 'Kheer anyone?' to which about 78% people said yes. And why not, just look at the kheer below!
Karisma Kapoor has been promoting her debut web-series Mentalhood that is streaming on Alt Balaji and Zee5, across cities. This isn't the first time we have seen the foodie side of the beautiful actor; remember when we caught her gorging on a Rajasthani thali in Jaipur? Or relishing authentic Bengali thali during Durga Puja? And, who can forget the superstar sisters Karisma and Kareena devouring bowl full of kheer on Diwali! Seems like Karisma loves kheer way too much!
Is the beautiful bowl of kheer making you crave some too? Guess what, you can make it at your own home. Here's a sumptuous, quick and easy recipe of kesar kheer/phirni that you can try at home.
