Happy Janmashtami to you all!!!!!
We all know the strong ties  Lord Krishna has with  Flat rice / Poha/ Aval. Because of this Aval/poha, the poor Sudhama got great amount of riches.
So, when that kind of simple yet great Poha is combined with another favorite of Krishna......I mean, milk......can any neivedhyam beat this???
 People are going to fall flat, when they taste this Flat rice kheer, mistaking it for regular milk kheer. It is a very good Neivedhyam, to offer to any God, and it is very easy to prepare.
Please check out my other Janmashtami special neivedhyams here

*The softly cooked flat rice, tastes so good, and just melts in your mouth.
*The quantity of condensed milk can be reduced and some sugar can be added too. 
*But this version is especially for youngsters who are new to   cooking, since  there isn't much complication.
*Unless you reveal, nobody is going to know that this is flat rice. They will surely think, this is Milk kheer.
*Because of the milk condensing and also adding the condensed milk, this kheer turns out to be so rich and creamy.
