Kheer Potol

Bijoya has gone and very soon Shyama Puja or Kali Puja will knock at our door. Misti of any kind can be made for any occasion all through the year but there are some special Misti which calls for making on special occasion. One such is Kheer Potol. It’s made in a much healthy way. I made during Durga Puja Bijoya this year and my friends relished it. Let’s dig ! #MadhubishsKitchen #KheerPotol
