Trivia Tadka

An unusual dish, the Hari Matar Ki Kheer is prepared by cooking mashed peas with condensed milk, sugar and cardamom. It is a winter delicacy popular in Punjab and Uttar Pradesh.


  • Milk (1 litre)
  • Ghee (1 cup)
  • Green peas (hari matar), boiled and crushed (½ cup)
  • Sugar (1 cup)
  • Green cardamom (hari elaichi) powder (1 cup)
  • Raisins (kishmish) (1 tsp)
  • Pistachio (pista) (10 to 15)


  • Peel and wash the matar. Then, run it through a mixer-grinder till it has turned into a smooth paste.
  • Heat ghee in a pan, add the matar paste to it and sauté for 5 minutes. Keep aside.
  • In a kadhai, boil the milk and add the crushed matar to it. Mix well. Let it boil till the milk has reduced to half of its original quantity. Keep stirring continuously.
  • Then, add in the sugar, elaichi powder and kishmish and mix well again. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes on a low flame. 
  • Matar Ki Kheer is ready! 
  • Serve hot, or chilled with garnished pistachios.
