Note About Leftovers

Alternatively, if you prefer chilled kheer, simply add chilled milk and mix.

2 servings


  • 2 tsp haleem (garden cress seeds)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 400 ml milk, cream removed
  • 8 seedless khajoor (dates), chopped into small pieces (or use gur or sugar to taste)
  • 10 almonds, soaked in water for 2 hours, then deskinned and sliced
  • 10 pistachios, soaked in water for 2 hours, then deskinned and sliced
  • 10 raisins
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder


  1. Soak the haleem seeds in water for 4 hours.
  2. Put milk in a pan, keep heat on medium-high and let the milk come to a boil.
  3. Reduce the heat to low and add in the chopped khajoor. Mix well and stir continuously for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add the soaked haleem seeds. Stir and add the sliced nuts, raisins and cardamom powder. Keep stirring and cook until the milk becomes creamy and thickens a little, about 10-12 minutes. Do not thicken it too much as the mixture will thicken as it cools down.
  5. Haleem kheer is ready. Transfer to bowls and serve.
