Here are some meal ideas to serve motichoor ladoo kheer:
Tips and variations to make best motichoor ladoo kheer:
Tip 1. The laddoo absorbs the milk, thus, this kheer thickens after cooling down. So boil kheer until you get semi thick consistency of kheer.
Tip 2. If you are planning to serve it after 7-8 hours or next day, and you think that kheer has thickened too much, then you can adjust consistency by adding warm or cooled boiled milk.
Tip 3. If you like kheer on a thicker side or you want to make parfait with it then cook it further until you get the desired consistency.
Tip 4. You can also make Boondi Ladoo kheer using the same recipe. To make Boondi laddu kheer, replace motichoor ladoo with boondi ladoos and the rest of the recipe will be the same.
Tip 5. If you like you can also add some fresh cream to the kheer. Motichoor ladoos are rich in taste, so I generally don’t add any cream to this kheer.
Tip 7. You can also replace sugar with jaggery, dates, honey or maple syrup.
Tip 8. I have used homemade motichoor ladoos for this recipe. However, you can use store bought ones too.
Tip 9. I made this kheer with leftover motichoor laddoos, but you can also use fresh laddus for making this kheer.
Tip 10. Laddus are already sweet so you don’t need much sugar for this pudding. I have added 2 tablespoons of sugar, but feel free to reduce the amount of sugar. Or you can completely omit any sweetener.
Tip 11. I have added saffron strands and cardamom powder for flavouring. To enhance flavours, you can also use rose water or kewra essence for flavouring.
