Apple Khoya Kheer

Apple Khoya Kheer is a delicious Indian dessert made using only 5 ingredients! This kheer can be made on any festive occasion and is served warm or chilled!


  • 1 big apple
  • 1 tbsp ghee
  • Handful of mixed nuts like chopped almonds cashews and pecans
  • Pinch of saffron strands
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup crumbled khoya
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Edible flowers and nuts for garnish


  • Peel the apple and grate them. Heat ghee in a pan and fry nuts like chopped almonds, pecans and cashews for a minute and then add the grated apple. Continue to saute for 2-3 minutes. Take it off the flame and let it cool completely.
  • Soak saffron strands in warm milk. In a thick bottom pan, add milk, crumbled khoya, sugar and saffron + milk. Mix and keep stirring at regular intervals till the kheer thickens. The khoya will crumble and the sugar will melt by then. Take it off the flame and let it cool down as well. Once everything is cooled down, add the apple mixture to the kheer and give it a stir.
  • Garnish with some edible flowers or nuts and serve chilled. These can be served slightly warm as well.


Allow the kheer and apple mixture to cool down completely else the addition of apples will curdle the kheer.
