How to know the Jaggery is good or bad ???

  • Take 2 tablespoons of the boiling milk in a small bowl, and add little Jaggery in the milk and mix it. If the milk is not curdled, the jaggery is good. If it has curdled, the Jaggery is not at all good, you have to add sugar instead of the jaggery.

Other tips

  • Always add the jaggery at the end.
  • Allow it to cool, refrigerate and serve chilled or at room temperature.
  • This kheer would thicken as it cools down.
  • Keep stirring the kheer in between to prevent it from burning and sticking to the bottom of the pan.
