Pistachio Recipes, Indian Pistachio Recipes

 pistachios recipes | Indian pistachio recipes.  Pistachios (or Pista) are a very popular nut for all age groups. They grow on trees and come in a tan shell. Once you open these shells, you get the nuts which have a green in color which comes from the presence of chlorophyll. These kernels are eaten either raw, roasted or salted and have a mild sweet, rich taste that goes well with Indian Sweets. They are also used to make ice creams, pastes and puddings.

Indian Sweets using Pistachios

Almost all sweets in India use pistachios in them in one form or the other. They add a crunch and slight sweetness to the desserts. Sometimes we use also use pistachio powder to make the whole sweet or tiny bits just for garnish.

Rice Kheer - It requires very few ingredients, and the procedure is simple as well. Here, the rice is cooked slowly in the milk. Once the rice is cooked, the kheer is sweetened with sugar, flavoured with cardamom and kesar and garnished with some chopped dried nuts, like pistachios.

Shrikhand – Simple and humble dahi, when removed of its excess whey, gives a beautiful creamy thick yogurt which is then sweetened with powdered sugar, kesar and elaichi. Mix a few pistachios in the end for some crunch and serve your shrikhand cold!
