Can you imagine a festive menu without kheer? Indeed, kheer is very close to our heart and our culture too. Unfortunately, this irresistible treat overshoots healthy calorie limits when cooked richly with full cream milk, nuts and loads of sugar. Bulgur Wheat Kheer is a good way out. By using high-fibre bulgur wheat with low fat milk and minimal sugar, this kheer turns out to be a heart-friendly and waistline-friendly treat, if had in small portions.
