KHEER, PAYASAM – KETO

Indian Kheer or Payasam (as it is called in South India ) is a favorite sweet dish prepared for festivals and all other celebrations of life. Usually it is made with rice and milk. Since this is a keto dish I have substituted grated paneer (Indian Cottage cheese) for rice and coconut milk and cream for cow’s milk.

INGREDIENTS

3 cups of grated paneer (Indian cottage cheese available as slabs in the cheese section of your grocery store or any Indian grocery)

1 tin of thick organic unsweetened coconut milk

1/2 cup of heavy cream

1/4 cup or more (to your taste) of sweetener (I used monk fruit sweetener, erythritol)

A few cashew nuts roasted to garnish on the top

A pinch of saffron, 1/4 teaspoon of cardamom powder

A pinch of salt

PREPARATION

In a deep pan heat the coconut milk with the sweetener, saffron and cardamom powder.

I slab of Paneer grated makes approximately 3 cups. Now add the grated paneer to the pan and allow the mixture to heat and boil for a few minutes.

Now add the cream and allow to boil for another 3 minutes.

Remove from heat and serve hot garnished with roasted cashews or chill it in the refrigerator and then serve chilled.

Enjoy!
