Blogging Marathon# 34: Week 3/ Day 3 Theme: Desserts with Vegetables Dish: Sweet Pea Kheer So for the final day of this week's BM# 34, I decided to make something different for 'Desserts with Vegetables'. I saw this sweet pea kheer on a Telugu cooking show and remember thinking to myself 'why would anyone use sweet peas to make kheer!!!!' But of course when Valli announced the themes, I knew I had to experiment with a vegetable that I have never used in desserts before, so here it is a kheer with sweet peas.

Total time

Ingredients

  • (1.25l) fish stock (Sweet (I used frozen sweet that I thawed))
  • 1 cup milk (Evaporated)
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp Condensed milk
  • a pinch Cardamom (Ground)
  • 1 tsp almonds
  • 1 tsp Cashews
  • 1 tsp Raisins


Method

  1. Grind sweet peas into a smooth paste.
  2. Heat 2tsp ghee in a nonstick pan, and roast the dry nuts until golden and set aside.
  3. In the same pan heat 2tsp ghee, add the sweet pea paste and sauté for 3~4 minutes. Cook until peas don't smell raw anymore.
  4. Add evaporated milk and cook for 4~5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add sugar and cook until the mixture thickens a little bit, about 3~4 minutes.
  5. Turn off the heat and add ground cardamom and condensed milk. Mix well and serve chilled.
  6. If not using evaporated milk, then boil 2cups of milk until it reduces to 1cup.
  7. Adjust sugar and condensed milk as per taste.
  8. If using fresh peas, then blanch them for 1~2 minutes.
