  • 2 cups full fat milk
  • 1/2 cup fine vermicelli (loosely packed)
  • 1/2 cup condensed milk
  • 1/4 tsp rose / kewra essence
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
  • 5 strands saffron
  • 2 tsp ghee

Nuts and Dry fruits:

  • 1 tbsp cashews
  • 1 tbsp almonds
  • 1/2 tbsp raisins
  • 1 tbsp dates
  • 1 tbsp pista


  • Heat ghee in a pan add all the nuts and dry fruits fry until golden, remove and set aside.
  • In the same pan add semiya and fry until golden.
  • Remove and set aside.To a pan add milk, let it boil simmer for 5 mins.Then add fried dry fruits and nuts(reserve a tbsp for garnish) and semiya.
  • Mix well and cook.As its fine semiya it gets cooked in just 2 mins so keep an eye.Now add condensed milk, saffron and cardamom powder after its cooked.
  • Add rose essence. let it simmer until slightly thick and creamy.Switch off and serve!


  • The kheer thickens with time so switch it off accordingly.
  • Add chiroli nuts if you have it.
    You can skip condensed milk and add 1/3 cup sugar too.
  • Ghee and malai should float on top at the final stage when you switch off.But don't make it too thick as after cooling it may be become very thick.
  • If it gets thick after cooling add 1/2 cup boiled milk but it will reduce the creaminess.
