This recipe is similar to kheer. Tasty snack, breakfast, or dessert.

You will need:

  • Rice (Chaval)- 1 cup
  • Water to soak the rice
  • Milk (Dudh) – 2 cup
  • Ground Cinnamon (Dalchini), or Cardamom (Choti Elaichi)  – 1 tsp
  • Sugar (Chini) – 1/4 cup (adjust to taste)
  • Plain Almonds (Badam)- 1/2 cup
  • Raisins (Kishmish) or Dried Cherries – 1/2 cup
  • *Saffron (Keshar) – a few strands (*optional)

Soak almonds in a little milk for a few hours.
Add just enough water in pot to cover rice; let soak for 1hr.
Slice almonds; add all ingredients to rice.
Cook until thickened. Serve hot or cold.

    Thank you Buttons for the recipe, you know I love Kheer and while I’m writing these comments, I’m eating it. Mom cooked it so well.

    Also we have a buffalo, so pure milk and with pure love. 😉

    You’re welcome 🙂 Did your mother make this recipe? Seems foods are similar in so many places, just named differently. My son likes it much more sugary than I so he adds sugar to his bowl.

    I’m jealous of the fresh milk :-), you’re very blessed! whole milk makes this so much more creamy and good. and dried cherries are more yummy than raisins (oh my tummy is growling LOL).

    If you like oats, try the avena recipe… we drink it as a heavy breakfast drink when we’re in a hurry and need something that will stick with us for long time till lunch. It also uses milk… yummy!
