Rose Dry Fruit Kheer

Rose Dry Fruit Kheer - An exquisite dessert recipe to relish during the festive season. It is an easy, quick and simply elegant yet delicious kheer that is made with just a few ingredients such as rose petals, dry fruits, and rice along with milk. I have used date paste that makes this dessert more healthy and addictive.

The use of rose in food is considered as royal and rich by some and is often reserved for special occasions. It is also for temple food they use rose as an offering. Rose petals are a symbol of royalty and delicacy. Roses are known to enhance the aesthetic beauty of anything they associate to and food is not an exception to it.

Rose petals can either be dried and crushed in the recipe or fresh petals are either shredded or directly added to the food. You should be careful while selecting the rose for your food preferably organic rose flower is the best option for food. The rose petals should be cleaned and washed thoroughly in running water to make sure it is devoid of the harmful sprays (insecticides). I have used both fresh and dried rose petals.

When you add date instead of sugar in your dessert that makes your dessert more healthy and delightful that you can eat without any hesitation or guilt. A showstopper of the evening is this Shahi rose and dry-fruit kheer, which has become family favourite.

When you think about your food always listen to your heart and do not hesitate to make it healthy. Desserts can also be healthy and delicious. This is my guilt-free version of this classic and royal and authentic Indian dessert that I can eat any time of day or night.

Stay healthy, stay humble!
