I am very happy to share my first post on recipes…really trust me, Its a very tasty, simple to make & lovely dessert. 🙂
Rice kheer is also known as “Rice Pudding”. Rice Kheer is a traditional and very popular sweet dish of India (especially of North India) Made with milk, rice and sugar it is a complete meal in itself. I love kheer, it is one of my favourite sweet dishes. When I was little I was fond of kheer, My mom used to make it quite often. Now here I am going to share my mom’s Kheer Recipe. 🙂
• 1 litre milk.
• ¼ cup rice.
• 5 to 6 tbsp sugar or as required.
• 3 green cardamoms/hari elaichi powdered.
• 15-20 chopped almonds/badam.
• 12-15 chopped cashews/kaju.
• 1 tbsp raisins/kishmish.
• 10-12 Chironji.
• Rinse & soak rice for 30 mins.
• Heat milk in a wide pan and let it come to a boil.
• Now drain the rice and add it to the simmering milk.
• Now keep stirring the milk for few minutes and make sure it does not burn at the bottom.
• Cook till it is of desired thickness and add the cardamom powder and stir.
• Once it reaches the desired thickness, add in the Sugar and the Dry fruits (almonds, chopped cashews, raisins, chironji) .
• When the rice has cooked completely and the kheer has thickened to the desired consistency, switch off the fire.
• Now pour the rice kheer in a serving bowl.
• The Rice Kheer is ready! you can serve the rice kheer, hot or warm or chilled. If you want to serve it cold, keep it in fridge for 2-3 hours. I personally like cold kheer. 🙂
• If kheer is served chilled, keep it a little sweeter because cold kheer tastes less sweet than hot kheer.
Wishing all my readers and friends a happy, prosperous and safe Diwali…May this Deepavali bring joy, health, happiness, prosperity and peace to your lives..Be happy, Be safe….Happy Diwali to you all!!! 🙂
