Kheer, I believe is one of the easiest dessert to make. I made it yesterday. So, I am just sharing it here. This one, I made for myself as my husband does not like "Kheer". I wonder why he doesnot like kheer when he likes all sweet. Anyways, he did taste it since I made it. But, no more. Anyways, this one is for all those who like kheer.

This recipe serves 6 people.


1 litre milk.
100 gms granulated sugar.
¼ cup basmati rice (60 gm).
A few strands of saffron.
Chopped almonds and pistachios for garnishing.
½ tbsp rose water (optional).
1 tsp cardamom powder.


Wash and rinse the rice and soak it for half an hour. Heat a pan and add milk. Keep the gas on medium. Save a tbsp of milk and add saffron strands to it. Keep aside. 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. the milk will reduce to almost half. It will take another 15 minutes. Now add the saffron soaked milk, cardamom powder and rose water. Heat for another 2 mins and take it off gas. Garnish it with chopped almonds and pistachios.
Serve it hot or chilled. It is lovely with puris and aalo ki subji. I am thinking of coming up with this recipe soon in my blog.
