  • 500 gram cauliflower (gobi)
  • 1 litre full cream milk
  • 1 teaspoon saffron (kesar)
  • 2 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • ½ Cup sugar or to taste

Ingredients For Garnish:

  • 1 tablespoon almonds (chopped)
  • ½ teaspoon unsalted pistachio (chopped)
  • ½ teaspoon edible rose petals (optional)


How To Prepare Cauliflower (Gobi):

  • Take the cauliflower and wash it properly. Cut the cauliflower in big chunks. 
  • Heat water in a large saucepan. Add cauliflower chunks, boil for 5 minutes or till the smell of cauliflower wafts away. Drain the water and transfer the cauliflower to a strainer or colander. 
  • Allow cauliflower to cool down a bit. Pat dry with a kitchen towel. 
  • Now grate the cauliflower. Or use a food processor to get fine granules of cauliflower. 

How To Make Gobi Ki Kheer:

  • While preparing cauliflower, simultaneously heat milk in a heavy bottom saucepan. 
  • Add the cardamom powder and stir to combine.
  • Let the milk come to a boil once and then reduce the heat to low. Allow the milk to simmer over low heat until it reduces to half the original amount.
  • Now, add the grated cauliflower, sugar and saffron. Stir to combine. 
  • Simmer the kheer on a low heat until cauliflower is nicely cooked and the kheer gets a creamy consistency. Turn off the heat.
  • Gobi Ki Kheer is best served chilled. So keep in the fridge for 2 - 3 hours. 
  • Garnish gobi ki kheer with chopped almonds, pistachio and rose petals. 


  • The sliced almonds or any other dry-fruits can be roasted in a tablespoon of ghee before adding in the kheer for an extra flavor.
  • If you do not have cardamom powder, use 2 - 3 whole green cardamom and crush them.
