There is no perfect or an imperfect way to celebrate a festival. It is all in our goof faith and belief. Every religion has some different and unique ways of celebrating and remembering their almighty..god…allah..jesus….Each one to its own!! But one thing that remains common is the food factor.

It just signifies our feelings…devotion and gratification towards God….and so they say

Well who can say no to this Kheer fantasy parfrait!! It is an imperfect way to put up but a perfect way to fascinate God. Layered with mix fruits….rice kheer and whipped cream this dessert is highly addictive and it will not just stuff your face but it is seriously satisfying. It may look fancy but trust me it is loaded with our traditional charm and deliciousness. The fruits give a nice kick and the creaminess of the kheer parts sheer lusciousness to this dessert. We can spend our entire evening devouring this classic parfrait.
