Kheer, the Indian rice pudding is a lot more delicious and exotic than regular rice pudding. Make this easy recipe to delight and surprise your foodie friends. It tastes delicious cold or warm.
1/4 cup short/medium grain rice (rinsed and drained) I used basmati.
1/4 cup water
2 cups milk (whole is best for this dessert)
1-3 tbsp of chopped nuts (cashews, almonds, pistachios. use one or all.)
5 raisins or more if you like (I left these out because I’m not a fan)
1 tsp ghee
1/4 tsp cardamom powder
a pinch of saffron
3 tbsp of sugar
a pinch of salt
3 tbsp of grated coconut (optional)
1/2 tsp rosewater (optional)
