10 Almonds (soaked)
10 pieces of cashew (soaked)
1 tbsp Khus khus (soaked)
10 pieces of pista (pistachios), soaked separately
1 litre milk
1-1/4 cup sugar
A few strands of saffron soaked in warm milk
How to make Dry Fruit Kheer:
First, peel off the almonds and pistachios.
Grind all dry fruits (including Khus khus) together to make a smooth paste.
Boil the milk until reduced to 3/4 of it.
Add the dry fruit paste in the boiled milk and again boil until it blends well.
Reduce the gas flame and add sugar to the mixture.
Stir constantly until the sugar gets dissolved.
Take off heat and finally add soaked saffron.
Cool it and serve.
