Recipe by Nabiha

When I host a dinner party and have slaved over the starter, main course and side dish, the last thing I want to do is spend more than an hour preparing dessert. This kheer is one of those Indian desserts that aren't too time consuming to prepare, yet are an elegant way to end a meal.
