Corn Badam Kheer

Corn is consider as both vegetable and grain, corn when eaten before they get mature is vegetable, once try they become a seed. Corn is highly rich in vitamin A, its a gluten free grain and its one of my main ingredient in many gluten free foods. When i chosed this week's of blogging marathon theme as desserts with vegetables, i know i'll be making a dessert with sweet corns. Earlier i was planning to make halwa with them and finally i went for this super delicious kheer, i used chironji seeds and blanched almonds to give more nuttiess to this excellent dessert.

This corn kheer can be enjoyed both chilled or warm, an excellent dessert to serve your sudden guests or to make as a special sweet for festival days. However i prepared this corn kheer few days back since i had some sudden guest at home. They simply enjoyed this kheer when they were warm and they loved it. If you want to make a different kheer just prepare this delicious kheer with sweet corn kernels.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#34.
