Kheer ~ Indian Rice Pudding

There are a few sweet dishes that I have grown up eating, Bread Ras Malai, Cardamom Kulfi are among them. Another frequently made sweet dish in our house was 'Kheer'. Although, I love it, I don't really make it that often these days, reason being DH doesn't like it much and cooking for myself doesn't inspire me enough to make it. However, on the rare occasions I make it, I relish the whole lot myself, and I don't mind.

Kheer can be served hot or cold. I like mine chilled with a generous sprinkling of nuts.

Linking this to Walk Through The Memory Lane event hosted by Sizzlingveggies. This event is the brain child of Gayathri

Serves 6 people.

1 litre milk.
¼ cup granulated sugar.
¼ cup basmati rice (60 gm).
2 tbsp raisins
Chopped almonds and pistachios for garnishing.
½ tbsp rose water (optional).
2 cardamom pods powdered.


1. Wash and rinse the rice and soak it for half an hour.
2.  Heat a pan and add milk. Keep the gas on medium high and heat the milk till it reduces a bit.
3. When the milk comes to boil (10-12 mins) add the rice. Heat it till the rice is cooked. Keep on stirring gently so that milk does not stick on the bottom of the pan.
4.The milk will reduce to almost half. It will take another 15 minutes. Now add the raisins, cardamom powder and rose water. Heat for another 2 mins and take it off gas. Garnish it with chopped almonds and pistachios.
5. Serve it hot or chilled.

Thank you for stopping by! Cheers!
