Indian Rice Pudding (Kheer)


Zee shared with me another Indian recipe. It’s an Indian dessert called Kheer. Kheer is basically an Indian Rice Pudding.

I love dessert and this is a very simple dessert recipe to make with some left over cooked rice on hand.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup cooked rice, mushed up
  • 5 cashews, cut up
  • 5 walnuts, cut up
  • raisin, soaked to soften (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons Kheer mix dissolved in 2 tablespoons of luke warm water
  • 4 tablespoons sugar

Kheer mix can be found in ethnic groceries stores. If you do not have Kheer mix, you can substitute the Kheer mix, milk and sugar with 1 can of evaporated milk and 1 can of condensed milk.

First, heat up the milk on medium heat in a sauce pan. You have to be careful not to burn the milk, stirring often.

Once the milk is simmering, add in the Kheer mixtures and the cut up nuts and raisins (if using) and continue stirring for a minute or two.

This recipe only takes 10 minutes to make. It yields 3 cups of rice pudding. You may eat the pudding warm or chill it before eating it. Both taste as good. Thank you Zee for sharing again.
