Punjabi Kheer Puda | Kheer with Malpua

Punjabi Kheer Puda | Kheer with Malpua | Kheer Poora

Kheer Puda is a sweet dish. Authentically this belongs to Punjabi Cuisine. Kheer puda is a monsoon special recipe of North India.

This is a combination of two sweet dishes i.e. kheer and puda. Kheer is made from rice (rice pudding) and this is served with sweet puda or pooda or poora.

Poora or Puda Served with Kheer

Many people make malpua from maida or refined flour. But this is also made with whole wheat flour. We make pua or malpua with wheat flour.

I have made this puda with sugar syrup. But to make this healthy, add jaggery powder to pua. Soak jaggery in a cup of water for 1 hr to dissolve it. Then add that water to wheat flour and make batter for puda.

Normally I make both as individual desserts. But together they taste heavenly.

The speciality of this puda is addition of fennel seeds (saunf) and black pepper seeds (kaali mirch) to the sweet wheat flour batter.

How to make kheer puda?

Preparing Kheer (Rice Pudding)

Clean and wash rice properly. Soak it in water for 1 hour.

Transfer soaked rice to a pressure cooker. Add in 1 ltr milk. Bring it to a boil.

Close lid of cooker. simmer on slow flame for 20 minutes. Make sure not to whistle.

Open lid once pressure released. Simmer for some more time till milk reduced half.

Mash lightly with help of ladle or spoon. Add chopped dry fruits.

Now add condensed milk. Stir well and simmer for 5 minutes more.

Since condensed milk is sweet no need to add extra sugar to the kheer.

Kheer or rice pudding is ready. Keep in refrigerator to cool.

Preparing Puda/ Poora/ Pura/ Pua

In a mixing bowl add wheat flour, semolina flour, fennel seeds, black pepper seeds.Mix them well.

In a bowl heat water and add sugar and boil till sugar dissolves. Add saffron strands or edible food color (optional). Keep aside to cool.

Pour in sugar syrup in flour mix slowly and gradually stirring nicely. Make sure no lumps left.

Make batter of smooth consistency. Don’t make it very thin as we need little thicker crepes.

Heat ghee in a pan. Put 1 spoon batter on it. repeat for other puda.

Flip to other side when one side is cooked. repeat for all puda.

Puda is ready. Serve puda with chilled kheer. Garnish with extra dry fruits.

This is such a great combination just like rabdi jalebi. I loved these puda. You can serve them as single dessert also. But together it tastes awesome.

Consistency should not be very thin. Keep it medium flowing consistency. Otherwise the pua will be thin. 
Adjust sugar as per your taste. 
Use full cream milk for best kheer. 
Reduce to desired consistency. If you feel more thick after cooling, add some chilled milk to bring it back to required consistency.
You can soak almonds in water for one hour to remove skin before chopping.
Incase you forgot to soak it for an hour, soak in hot water for 5 – 10 minutes. Skin will be easily removed.
