Here’s the thing: We are halfway through the holy nine days of Dasara and now when I glance my previous posts, it reminds me something. Am I compatible with this festival as a food blogger? Don’t I need to post some desserts that has sugar and milk? Because milk based dessert is what usually offered to Goddess and how can I forget about it? When such food thoughts were arising apparently in my mind, I just looked at my overcrowded food idea board. Which has this “Kheer” scribbled at the corner to my surprise. Which means I am on track!! It pacified and directed me on the meal preparation for the day. So this little millet kheer magic has happened for lunch and I along with kids indulged in the deliciousness.
One of the advantages of listing your ideas is: looking at all the things you haven’t done yet which in turn forces you to follow through. I have started this “Note down the food idea” kind of practice lately and I am happy I have done. Because it is this list that pushes me through which otherwise can become justification for not posting recipe on schedule. So this is very important at least for kind of bloggers like me.
Little millet kheer is absolutely a dairy rich dessert in which these tiny cereal i.e millet is soft, creamy, sweet and flavorful. I cooked the millet in water initially and then included milk for further cooking. But you can initially cook in milk itself for more rich and creamy taste. The little millet being very tiny, cooks fast like in 5 to 6 minutes on stove top. And to bring in rich creaminess, you need to cook it in milk and sugar till you get the right consistency. With a bowl of dessert in hand, I wish you all happy Dasara. May Goddess bless you all.
