The Dessert My Family Can’t Get Enough Of
Dessert in my house is my children’s family meal… Wait. No, that’s a lie. It’s my whole family’s favorite meal!
We look forward to it because we always make something delicious. It used to be once a week or so and now we have fun creating our little dessert concoctions each night.
I love preparing the dishes with my kids. It’s probably because I have countless memories making dessert with my mom as a kid. She was a single mom at the time and she knew how to make it special. We would make cookies, eagerly waiting to lick the beaters.
Now, I get to carry on these same traditions with my little boys.
Simple Vermicelli Kheer Dessert
Dessert overall is delicious, but Indian desserts… Come on. They’re delicious!
Lately we’ve been making kheer. It’s a delicious and simple to make Indian rice pudding. You can make it with rice or vermicelli like we do.
The best part is the day after we make it. We usually make enough for one night and a bit extra. The next day everyone starts hiding the leftovers in the fridge and by everyone I’m including my husband! He and the kids start hiding it behind whatever they can in the fridge so the rest of them thinks it’s gone.
Then the lucky winner sits down with a cold bowl of vermicelli kheer while the rest of them gawk and beg for a bite!
Shan Foods Makes It Simple!
When my husband and I first got married, I had every intention of making Indian foo
d frequently throughout the week. Sadly, the reality was much different. Traditional Indian dishes can take hours or even an entire day to prepare.
busy momma to three little ones, I just didn’t have the time. I needed help. Then I discovered Shan Foods.
They make it possible for anyone to make traditional Indian dishes in no time! A few of our favorites are pav bhaji, karahi chicken, butter chicken, and lahori fish fry.
