Apple Kheer / Apple Payasam | How to make Apple Kheer | Apple Keer recipe with all details and step by step pictures..


Apple Kheer is a delicious apple and milk based dessert . It’s a lovely variation to traditional kheer recipes .
Apple kheer is tasty , it has goodness of fuit and aromatic flavour of saffron and cardamom.

The main difference between Apple Kheer / Apple Payasam / Seb ki Kheer and traditional Kheer recipes is that cooked grated apple is added into the rabri/thickned milk at the end to prevent it from curdling due to apple’s sourness.

Thicking milk takes lot of time , so I have used Condensed Milk to give thick and creamy texture to kheer.

To make Kheer from a fruit like Apple which has acidic property , we will first cook apple separately . Cool it and then add in cooled thickened milk / Rabri..

If you add a pinch of cooking soda to mil while boiling , then you can add uncooked / raw apples directly to milk an it won’t curdle. But I never make that way. If one wish , definitely can try .

Some important Notes :

  • Use sweet variety of Apples to make this Kheer.
  • To prevent Apples from turning brown , use immediately after grating.
  • One can use sugar instead of Condensed Milk.
  • Always mix thickened milk and cooked apple only after cooled completely else milk will curdle.
  • To prevent milk from curdling , one can add a pinch of baking soda in it while boiling .
