Amazingly, this healthy kheer still manages to give you the total satisfaction that you get from other kheer.. as the bulgur wheat gives this kheer a complete rich and creamy texture... very mildly sweetened and quite filling... this is an excellent dessert to make as a quick and easy last minute stir.. and with no mess.. simple ingredients.. and great flavor..

It's a lovely twist to the normal rice kheer,a very healthy version. I loved the texture and the sweetness is just perfect.

Healthy light dessert. Good to see the use of dalia and low fat milk. My girls loved it too.
