Quinoa Kheer

Quinoa Kheer is a Indian fusion dessert made with the super grain Quinoa and milk . The grain is gluten free.

Kheer is a traditional Indian dessert made with rice and milk which is very popular all over the country . Milk and rice are simmered and reduced to give a creamy consistency to make Kheer . It surely is amazing to see the different variations and perhaps each state has its own variation . I have always been fond of this dessert and have more than 25 Kheer recipes on the blog .

For today under the theme Fusion at it’s Best , I have a Quinoa Kheer . Quinoa is a super food , gluten free , which is getting very popular across the world for its health benefits . I have cooked this protein rich grain with milk to get that creamy consistency and added some vanilla essence to give a fusion twist .

The quinoa kheer is a very pleasant change from the traditional Indian kheer . With vanilla. Quinoa  kheer is more on the western style desserts . Do give it a try and yes check out some more kheers here.
