Gur Ki Kheer (Rasiya or Raskheer – Kheer with Jaggery)

Gur Ki Kheer is a traditional recipe which belongs to the Royal Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.

In Bihar, this kheer is known as Rasiya and in Western Uttar Pradesh it is known as Raskheer.

Serve this delectable Gudwali kheer, especially during chilling winters, to keep yourself warm. The only thing that I have incorporated in this kheer is that instead of using Simple Jaggery, I have used Punjabi Masala Jaggery which has fennel seeds, carom seeds, dry ginger and already added to it, which further enhances the flavor of the kheer making it absolutely delicious.
