Wheat Milk Kheer

Wheat Milk Kheer is made from the milk extracted from the whole wheat grains. The flavoring agents like saffron and cardamom, the sweetness of jaggery, and the chunky chopped nuts at bites make this wheat milk kheer tastes incredible on each sip. A healthy option for the kids as they would stick to the addictive taste of this kheer.

Whole wheat grains are soaked overnight and ground with enough water to extract the wheat milk. Both cow's milk and coconut milk pairs well with the wheat milk. I use cow's milk today to make this kheer. You could turn this kheer as a no-stove recipe by just adding coconut milk, wheat milk, jaggery, and nuts. The wheat milk recipe which I prepare is on the stovetop and I assure, it would taste fabulous on each sip.

How to Prepare?
  • Wash and soak the whole wheat grains overnight.

  • The soaked wheat grains, cardamom pods along with the water is to be taken in a juicer/ mixer.

  • Grind well and extract to get the dense wheat milk.

  • In a heavy-bottomed pan, bring 2 cups of cow's milk to boil. 

  • Add 3 cups of wheat milk to the boiling cow's milk and stir.

  • Keep stirring as the wheat milk tends to lump easily. It would be just 2 minutes' work after adding the wheat milk.

  • Add jaggery and chopped nuts to the kheer, and keep stirring.

  • Your kheer would be going thick at this time. Just switch off the stove once the kheer starts to thicken.

  • Sprinkle some saffron over the wheat milk kheer.

  • Serve hot or cold as per your desire.

  • For the dairy-free version, try with coconut milk which would also be equally awesome.
  • Don't skip saffron as they play the main role in flavoring the kheer.
  • Keep stirring, keep stirring until you switch off the stove. If you forget this, you may get lumps throughout the kheer or it may stick to the bottom and cause smoky flavor which could spoil your wheat milk kheer experience.
Healthy & Tasty Kheer!
