Ingredients
  

  • 250 grams Blueberry fresh
  • 1/3 cup Rice
  • 1 litre Whole Milk
  • 6 tablespoon Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Ghee/Clarified Butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kewda/ Kewra Water
  • 1/4 cup Water

Instructions
 

  • First of all, wash and soak rice for 20 minutes. Heat Ghee/Clarified Butter in pressure cooker on medium heat and add rice to it. Saute for a minute and then add 1/4 cup of water and half of milk to it. Put the lid on and pressure cook it for 2 whistles. Let the pressure release naturally.
  • In another pan, add blueberries and sugar and heat it on medium heat. Stir with the help of spatula and sugar will start melting. Once all the sugar is melted, crush the blueberries with the spatula, bring the heat to medium low and let the mixture reduce to half. Switch off the heat and keep it aside.
  • Once the pressure is released from cooker, open the lid and add rest of milk to it. Mix well and keep it on medium heat. Let it boil for 5-7 minutes, stirring in between so that it doesn't stick to the bottom.
  • Add the reduced blueberry compote(mixture) now and mix well. Switch off the heat. Transfer it to a serving bowl. You can enjoy it hot or cold after chilling it in fridge for few hours.
    Blueberry Kheer - How to make best kheer

Notes

  • Always adjust the amount of sugar according to the sourness of blueberries.
  • Blueberry compote shouldn't be sour, otherwise it will risk in curdling of milk/kheer.
  • Compote shouldn't be too hot at the time of adding it to the kheer/porridge.
  • You can make the kheer in any heavy bottomed pan instead of pressure cooker. I made it in pressure cooker just to save time.
  • Similarly you can make the kheer in Instant pot too with the porridge option.
  • You can add chopped nuts too to the kheer, i skipped it as i wanted only the blueberry taste and flavour.
  • You can use jaggery in place of sugar.
