 Plain milk - 1/2 cup
 Elachi powder - 1/2 tsp
 Jaggery - 1/2 cup
 cashew nuts chopped - 2 tsp
 Raisin - 2 tsp
 Ghee - 2 tsp
 Cloves - 2


Cook broken wheat till tender( Either you can pressure cook or you can cook in a pan lid covered)
Next in a pan, add jaggery and milk , bring to a boil. Add coconut milk, elachi powder and cloves to this sweetened milk. Next add the cooked broken wheat and continue cooking in low flame for another 10 min with lid closed.

On the other side, heat ghee in the a small pan and roast cashew nuts and raisins. Add this to the boiling kheer and serve the kheer/payasam for the entire household either hot or cold. Its delicious and
