Kheer - The World's Yummiest One!

"Yesterday, Feb 14th, was a VERY special day for me. It marked the conclusion of a 5 month fast period on every Friday for me. As per the religious beliefs and the holy book,I made this sweet rice-milk pudding yesterday. Also, it was Valentine's Day, and being the "sweetest" holiday, I had been only more glad that I could finally give this recipe a shot! I found this recipe in a magazine few days back. My mom and me had this for our Valentine's dinner at the end, as dessert:) She really liked it(and she is NOT a sweets person) and said, I must write "Dig in" to please her when I share the recipe on Zaar. That's why that's there in the recipe at the end;) HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! May the fragrance of love touch every soul and its essence smell stronger with time!"

Questions & Replies

  1. How much I should take rice for kheer


  1. Great recipe! I usually double the recipe and use fat free milk. I omit the condensed milk and sweeten with 60ml of agave nectar. I like it with 1/4 tsp of cardamom.<br/><br/>This gets "sampled" straight from the pot and enjoyed when it's cooled.<br/><br/>It makes a terrific cool desert for after a nice spicy Indian meal.
  2. Perfect EXCEPT?there should be golden raisins as well. :)
  3. I love this recipe! It was so easy and delicious. I used 150g. rice, half whole milk and half skim, and whole cardamom pods. Thank you - I will be making this often!
  4. This is even better than the kheer at our favorite Indian restaurant. My whole family loved it. I used green cardamom pods and ground my own cardamom to add as well. I just can't get over how terrific this is. Thank you!
  5. Delicious and very easy! I reduced the milk to 3 3/4 cups, and increased the rice to 3/4, because I like it to be more ricey and less soupy. I used 1/4 tsp cardamom which I thought was perfect, but hubby found a little too much. And I added just a -touch- of rose water. I didn't find the almonds added anything and will leave them out next time. DELICIOUS!!!!
