  • 600 ml - Milk
  • 1/2 cup - Water
  • 1/4 cup - Basmati rice
  • 6-8 tsp - Organic sugar
  • 1/2 tsp - Cardamom powder
  • Nuts (Cashew/Almond/Raisin/Pistachio)
  • 1 tsp - Ghee for frying nuts
  • A pinch of Saffron

How to make Kheer:

  1. Wash rice a few times and drain completely.
  2. Chop the nuts and set aside.
  3. Pour 1/4 cup water to a pot. This prevents Kheer from getting scorched at the bottom.
  4. Then pour milk and bring to a boil. Keep stirring.
  5. Add drained rice and begin to cook on a medium flame until rice is soft, completely cooked and lightly mushy.
  6. Add sugar and continue to cook until rice kheer turns thick.
  7. Add cardamom powder, chopped nuts, saffron. Stir and continue to cook for 5 minutes.
  8. Turn off the flame, kheer thickens once it cools down. Garnish kheer with more nuts and serve.
