Navaratri Special Recipe: Coconut Kheer | Olya Naralachi Kheer

Hello Foodies,
         Festival season is going on, and today I am sharing one more fasting or festival recipe that

is coconut kheer / naralachi kheer. Kheer is prepared in festivals, temples, weddings, and all special occasions. Kheer is a milk pudding, made by boiling rice, coconut, broken wheat, tapioca, or vermicelli with milk and sugar. It is flavored with cardamom, raisins, saffron, cashews, pistachios or almonds. I have prepared this kheer and have added jaggery instead of white sugar as a sweetener, it is an interesting and delicious version. It is typically served during a meal or as a dessert. It is also known as payasam and phirni. It is offered to Hindu deities as a prasadam. Coconut kheer is a delicious recipe prepared with fresh coconut simmered in milk and flavored with cardamom. Do try coconut kheer this festive season.
