How to make Rajgira Ki Kheer Recipe
To begin making Rajgira Ki Kheer Recipe, first the rajgira has to be popped. Heat a kadai on low heat with 2-3 tablespoons of rajgira at a time. The rajgira will start popping almost immediately. As they keep popping, remove the popped seeds on a plate. Repeat the procedure till all the rajgira are popped.
In a small bowl, add saffron threads to 2 tablespoons warm milk and let it stay for 10 minutes.
Once all the ramdana/rajgira are popped, in a heavy bottomed pan, bring the milk to boil. Once the milk reached to near-boiling, add the popped rajgira and stir occasionally, on medium heat.
Cook it further for about 10 minutes or till the rajgira are cooked. Add the chopped nuts, raisins, cardamom powder, soaked saffron with milk, and simmer for about 5 minutes.
Switch off heat, garnish with pista and rose petals, and serve. You can serve it chilled too.
