KheerKheer: Kheer is an Indian style rice pudding, traditionally made with rice, milk, cream, and sugar and is sometimes flavored with vanilla, nutmeg, jam and/or cinnamon. It can be made in two ways: in a saucepan or by baking in the oven. Kheer is one of the simplest, most satisfying desserts you can make in under half an hour.

Ingredients

(serves 4):

  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • Sugar, to taste
  • 1 tbsp raisins
  • 1 tbsp chopped pistachios
  • 1 tbsp chopped almonds
  • A few strands of saffron
  • Cinnamon powder, for garnish

Method:

  • Soak the Raisins in a little bit of water to help puff them up.
  • Strain and keep aside.
  • Heat the milk in a heavy bottomed pan, on medium heat.
  • Add in the cooked rice.
  • Grind the saffron strands with a little bit of sugar and add it to the milk.
  • Keep stirring the pan and make sure milk does not burn at the bottom.
  • Cook till it is of desired thickness.
  • Once it reaches the desired thickness, add in the sugar.
  • Mix well.
  • Add in the soaked raisins, pistachios and almonds.
  • Turn off the flame.
  • Kheer is ready to be served.
  • Garnish kheer with a sprinkle of cinnamon powder.
  • Serve hot or cold.

Notes:

  • If you are making the rice just for the Kheer, over cook the rice just a little.
  • This is a great recipe if you don’t have a lot of time but alternatively, you can add in raw rice and cook it in the milk and it tastes great. But be very careful and keep stirring frequently.
  • If you like a smoother texture of rice in the kheer, just mash it lightly before adding it to the Milk.
