  • 3 - 4 saffron strands            

  • A pinch of cardamom powder  

  • 2 tsp sugar                         

  • 1 tbsp pistachios

How to prepare:

  1. Heat ghee in a pot and add the finely chopped apples. Saute for 3-4 minutes till slightly soft and add quinoa, milk, saffron and cardamom to it

  2. Bring it to a boil and simmer for 25-30 minutes until the milk reduces by a third and the mixture thickens up. Simmer for longer if you like your kheer really thick

  3. Add stevia powder and stir until combined. Cool to room temperature, and then refrigerate for an hour

  4. Serve chilled, topped with chopped pistachios and apple slices

Note: You can replace sugar with stevia to reduce the amount of simple carbs
