Rice Pudding / Kheer

Actually, my rice pudding recipe is something which was an accident-turned-yummy recipe! Once, when I overcooked rice and didn't know what to do out of the leftover, I tried this out to avoid wasting... This is a perfect sweet dish after lunch and also can be given to anyone and everyone cuz this is a darling recipe.. 

Ingredients :

Cooked white rice : 1 cup
Milk : 2 cups
Sugar : 1 cup
Fried cashews : 1/2 cup
Pista / Badam : 1/2 cup
Cardamom powder : 1/2 tspn
Sweetened condensed milk : 1/2 cup
Ghee : 3 tbspn
Salt : a pinch
Fresh / sweetened whipped cream : to garnish
  • Take a bowl and pour ghee onto it. Put the cooked rice into it and saute for 2-3 minutes under medium flame.
  • Take another bowl and pour milk along with sugar and boil under low flame until the milk reduces to 3/4th of its original content. Keep stirring occasionally.
  • Add cardamom powder and then, a pinch of salt and mix well.
  • Add the above rice mix to the bowl containing milk and cook covered under low flame to the consistency of your choice. A not too loose to thick consistency is ideal.
  • Add condensed milk and stir well. Switch off the flame.
  • Add fried cashews (and raisins if you wish) and stir well.
  • Garnish the pudding with fresh cream and then, badam and pista over it. Rich isn't it?
- You may also make rice pudding with plain, overcooked basmati rice.
- If the rice is not overcooked, mash it and then saute in ghee.
- If the pudding is too thick, add more milk & required sugar to the consistency of your choice.
