No introduction is necessary for our very our Seviyan Kheer ( Vermicelli Kheer). It one of the easiest and yummiest Kheer. Be it any festival or function we always have a sweet as a part of our meal.
What is Kheer
Kheer is a type of dessert that is like a pudding from the Indian Subcontinent. It is usually prepared with Milk, Sweeteners, Nuts, and many more. In India, every special occasion calls for a dessert and kheer is the savior. Kheer gets done quickly in no time and hence here it gets its significance.
Instant Pot Seviyan Kheer
When preparing the kheer is so easy with stovetop why go for an Instant pot version. So here is it. Instant pot Vermicelli Kheer requires absolutely no babysitting. Just dump and go all the ingredients, you get the yummiest kheer in no time.
With the stovetop version, we will have to keep string to prevent the milk from flowing out of the vessel. Also, we will have to keep stirring from the start to the end.
In Instant pot first, add ghee and fry the nuts and then remove them aside, and then in the same ghee roast the vermicelli. Followed by adding Milk, Water, Sugar, and other ingredients. Next, we have to close the Ip and wait till it's done. That's it, It is as simple as that. Even a beginner can try this easy and quick Kheer.
Seviyan / Vermicelli - Usually, roasted or unroasted types of vermicelli are there in the market. You can use any one as per the availability. If using unroasted vermicelli, make sure you saute the vermicelli in ghee for a minute and then add the milk. If using roasted vermicelli, you may add the vermicelli directly and skip the step of roasting.
Milk - Always use Full fat milk for the kheer for a creamy kheer.
Sugar - Traditionally we use white sugar for the seviyan kheer. If you are ready to compromise in color you may go for Coconut sugar or Palm sugar.
cardamom - this adds tons of flavor to the kheer so do not miss it. You can either use crushed cardamom or cardamom powder. Additionally, you can use 1 tsp of Rosewater.
Cashew nuts and Raisins - If you have ghee roasted nuts ready, you may use them directly to the kheer. If not as I did you can add ghee and roast the nuts first and set them aside.
Saffron - You can also garnish the Kheer with Saffron. I use Rose petals and nuts.
- Make sure you clean the instant pot very well. The lid should not have any food debris. Also, no water is there outside the inner pot of the instant pot. Wipe well dry and then use.
- Always make sure the pressure knob is in the sealing position
- If using roasted vermicelli and you can skip the roasting step.
- Also make sure the sealing ring is inserted correctly.
Will the Milk curdle while making Kheer in Instant pot?
I never faced this problem before with milk. Coconut milk will get curdled easily but with dairy, the chance is less. As a precaution make sure there is no residue to reduce the chance of curdling.
How do you thicken Kheer?
If you ever feel the kheer is noo thick. You can roast some vermicelli and cook them and add to the kheer. This will thicken the kheer. Also as the kheer cools down it thickens.
