Jau Ki Kheer - जौ की खीर (Barley Pudding)

Hello friends,


I have been meaning to make it for past whole month and just got the time today.  I have never made or had it before, but just wanted to give it a try.


I am glad that I tried as I loved it. I made it in a very similar manner to how we will make rice pudding.


Jau Ki Kheer - जौ की खीर (Barley Pudding)




Ingredients
Pearl Barley - 1/2 cup
Milk - 8 cups (I used skimmed, but use anything you prefer)
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Ilaichi (Green Cardamom) Powder - 1/2 tsp
Raisin and Cashew (Kishmish and Kaju) - 1 tbsp each
Ghee (Clarified Butter) - 1 tbsp
Preparation
  • Wash and soak barley for 3-4 hours.
  • Boil milk in a heavy bottomed pan or pressure cooker and cook till barley is well cooked (not mushy, but well cooked).
  • Add sugar, ilaichi powder and let it cook for another 10-15 minutes.
  • Switch off the heat.
  • Take ghee in a small pan and fry kaju and kishmish.
  • Garnish kheer with fried kaju and kishmish.
Serving
Serve it warm or chilled as you prefer for dessert. As you all know, we like it warm :)


I am sending this to Kiran's Cooking With Whole Foods - Barley event.





That's all for now. Take care till next post.
