Kheer Motichoor Parfait

Someone has rightly said, good food is all the sweeter when shared with good friends. Continuing our celebration of Diwali, a festival of lights, with friends and while sharing the common love for fusion food, we brought together our two most favourite Indian desserts, Kheer (rice pudding) and Motichoor laddoo (sweetened gram flour balls) with a twist of salty, crunchy Parle monaco biscuits! This dessert is a perfect blend of taste with salty-sweet taste, to enjoy that perfect festive night and yet not make it too sweet an indulgence!
