Shahi Khir is a dessert fit for the kings, hence the name. Shahi means rich, royal…The abundance of dry fruits and Panir in this Kheer make it a rich dessert. The textures of the chopped dry fruits, the softness of the paneer, the creaminess of the milk, make for a suprise-in-every-bite-kinda-dessert. Enjoy this deconstructed Ras-Malai at home without all the drama.
