Recipe-Kheer (rice pudding)



Indian dessert-Kheer (rice pudding)

Indian desserts are very tempting and mouthwatering. Kheer is a special Indian dessert that is made mostly for festivals or celebrations. On this Rakhi I am sharing my recipe of making kheer, surprise your brother by making him this Indian sweet. Kheer is a rice pudding, which is a traditional Indian sweet dish. It is made by boiling rice with milk and sugar, and flavored with cardamom, raisins, cashew nuts, pistachios or almonds. It is typically served during a meal or also consumed alone as a dessert. It has good nutritional value as it combines the nutritional value of rice and milk.


Ingredients


  • 1 Liter (4 cups) Milk
  • ¼ cup Rice
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp Ghee (Clarified butter)
  • 6-7 Cardamom seeds (Ilaichi)
  • 1 tbsp Raisins (Kishmish)
  • Chopped Cashew nuts (kaju) Almonds (badam)


Method


  • Bring the milk to boil in a pan on medium heat.
  • In another pan roast the rice in 1 tsp ghee (Clarified butter) for 5 minutes, it will give rice a nice aroma and flavor.
  • Add rice to the milk and cook slowly until thick (about 20 minutes). You may also boil milk for much longer in low heat it will give a stronger flavor and color
  • Stir it continuously to prevent the kheer from sticking to the bottom of the pan
  • Cook till it is of desired thickness
  • Now add in the Sugar and mix well
  • Add in the Cardamom seeds (Ilaichi), Raisins and Chopped Cashew nuts & Almonds
  • Turn off the flame

Your tasty Kheer or rice pudding is ready to be served now. So celebrate this joyous event with your family.
