Healthy and delicious kheer with pumpkin

Pumpkin kheer is very healthy and yummy desserts especially for kids. I used to make this kheer atleast once in a month. Because pumpkin is very nutritious and healthy food. It is a best nutrient food which contains lots of Vitamins and Minerals but low calorie. Pumpkin reduces the risk of heart problems,obesity,blood pressure etc…Pumpkin is the best known source of antioxidants which prevents certain types of cancer. I have already tried Pumpkin Soup and Mathanga Elissery(pumpkin and pea curry) with pumpkin. Hope you will like this recipe.
