For the pudding
- 1 1/2 cups quinoa, cooked
- 1 teaspoon ghee
- 1 apple, finely chopped
- 750 ml skim milk
- 8 strands saffron
- 1 teaspoon cardamom, crushed
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons pistachios, chopped
- Apples for topping, sliced
In a pot, heat the ghee and add the finely chopped apples. Saute for 3-4 minutes till slightly soft.
Add quinoa, milk, saffron and cardamom to your pot.
Bring it to a boil and simmer for 35-40 minutes until milk reduces by about one third, allowing the kheer to thicken up. You can simmer for longer if you like your kheer really thick.
Add sugar and stir until combined.
Cool to room temperature, and then refrigerate for an hour or so.
Serve chilled, topped with chopped pistachios and apple slices.
