Mochai/Field Beans Kheer

                   This is the first time i'm having mochai/field beans kheer .Even i've not heard about this before.My hubby bought 1 kg of fresh mochai and after using it for sambar still mochai was lying in my fridge.So i decided that again i wont make the sambar.I want to try some thing different and when asked my aunty she told about this recipe.But what she told was totally different but i made few changes for my convience and finally landed up with this kheer.I'm sure everyone would like this and its totally different from the usual recipes made with mochai.





Ingredients :

Mochai/Field Beans 1 small cup(100 ml)
Sugar 1 small cup(100 ml)
Milk 1 1/2 cup(normal size)
Elachi powder 1/8 tsp
Badam/Almonds 8 nos


Method :

1. Boil the mochai in the pressure cooker upto 3 whistels.






2.Now bring it to the room temperature and grind in the mixie along with the milk.(I used 1/4 cup of milk from 1 1/2 cup milk).Grind in the pulse side once.






3.In a non stick pan pour the grinded paste , milk and sugar.Boil it by keeping in low flame and stir now and then.






4.When is boils switch off the flame and add the elachi powder.







5.Now chop the badam and top it over the kheer.If required can be served chill.






Notes :

1.Adjust the sugar according to the taste.

2.Can even roast the cashew in the ghee and add to the kheer.I didn't do it as i prepared it as a kheer and not payasam.

3.Adding elachi powder is a must and it will eradicate the raw smell of mochai.

4.Use the boiled milk.
