Rava chana dal kheer recipeToday is Akshay Tritiya. Happy and prosperous Akshay Tritiya to you all.  Akshay Tritiya is an auspicious day, which is celebrated in India. Akshay means something that never reduces. I have taken inspiration from this word to name my blog Akshaypatre.  Patre means vessel. On this day many people purchase gold. I prepared this  kheer to celebrate the holy occasion of  Akshay Tritiya. The speciality of this kheer is after eating it you do not feel like to eat anything else. The kheer itself is a complete meal. Both rava and chana dal are enough to fill the stomach.
