furthermore, some more important and critical tips, suggestions and variants to the dry fruit kheer recipe. firstly, i would strongly recommend using full cream milk for this kheer recipe. as a matter of fact, you need to use full cream milk for any type of kheer for the creamy and thick consistency. secondly, the use of dry fruit is open-ended and you can use any types of the desired dry fruits. having said that try to balance out the usage as it should not overpower each other. lastly, due to the use of mawa or khoya, the consistency may turn thick once it is rested. hence you may bring it right consistency by reheating it and adding water to it.
