Seviyan is used by most of us to prepare kheer. This recipe uses almond paste for thickening the kheer. This paste also adds a different flavour. Essence of the highly scented kewra flower has been used as flavoring along with lots of chopped almonds. Kewra essence is readily available at most provision stores.
