This dish is very popular in Udaipur from where it is said to have originated. Its texture is similar to that of rabdi although wheat is used to thicken this dessert.

"Kheech" refers to a "mashed texture" that is almost like porridge. As wheat and milk are rejuvenating foods that provide plenty of energy, it is also served to convalescents who are recovering.

It has a mashed texture but its delicious. An easy to make recipe, if the wheat is soaked. Serve immediately only then you will enjoy it!
