Foxtail Millet Kheer

Foxtail Millet kheer
 Foxtail Millet Kheer  for the family to enjoy a healthy & yummy dessert together
We all know kids can crave for donuts, cakes, chocolates, other processed sweets etc. every now and then. But if we just give up to these cravings, they will only keep getting bigger!
Instead, provide them alternative healthy traditional sweets that you can make easily at home. A kheer made from foxtail millets is one such substitute that can be offered to kids, guilt-free. They will definitely understand that yes, homecooked desserts can be yummy, fun and genuinely help them become stronger, over time.
– 1 cup Foxtail Millet
– 250 ml Milk
– 2 tbps Ghee
– ½ cup jaggery Powder
– Dry fruits – few cashews, raisins for garnishing/ 1 tbps of Early Foods Dry Fruits & Seeds Powder
Method of Preparation:
– Wash & Soak Foxtail Millet for 4 hours
– Use the same soaked water to cook it soft for 15 mins
