Kheer – a delicious Indian Rice Pudding

A very popular and a hot favorite sweet dish for all occassions.
This rice pudding is very delicious, versatile- can be flavoured in many different ways, and is easy to make. It can be served either hot or cold.

This was our choicest festival delicacy on Janamashtmi celebrations at Shanti Home.

Here is the recipe for you.

Put the rice, milk and cardamom in a pan, bring to boil and simmer gently until the rice is soft and the grains are starting to break up.

Add the sugar and stir until completely dissolved.
