Rice Pudding (Chawal ki Kheer)

Indian Egg less Sweets Special
Punjabi/Sindhi/Uttar Pradesh Cuisine
Rice Pudding (Chawal ki Kheer)
Serves 2

Jeera Samba Rice/Special Kheer Rice- ¼ Cup

Pure Ghee- 1 Tsp.
Milk- 1 Litre
Sugar- 25 Grams or To Taste
Almonds- 1 Tbsp., Blanched & Slivered 
Raisins- 1 Tbsp.
Cardamom Powder- ¼ Tsp.
Rose Water- 1 Tsp. 
Saffron- Few Strands

Clean, Wash & Soak Rice for about 30 Minutes to 1 Hour

Soak Almonds in Hot Water for about 30 Minutes so that the skin is removed easily
In a Heavy Bottomed Pot, Heat Ghee
Fry the Rice on Low Flame for about 3-4 Minutes
Add Milk and bring to a Boil

Turn the Flame down & Cook till the Rice is cooked
Always keep a check that the Milk doesn’t stick to the bottom of the Pot
The Kheer needs to have a Consistency just like that of a Thick Custard

Add Sugar, Cardamom Powder, Saffron & Stir
Add the Sliced Nuts, Raisin & Mix Well
Serve Warm or Chilled, tastes equally great!!!


Preferably Full Cream should be used for this Recipe to get the desired Kheer Consistency & Taste!
Can use Blanched, Skin Removed & Chopped Almonds instead of Slivered Pieces
In case the Almonds can’t be soaked in Water, can also Microwave the Almonds soaked in Water on full for about 2 Minutes
Can use Peeled & Chopped Pistachios
Can use Few Drops of Rose Essence if Rose Water is unavailable

Our Personal Favorite is the Spanish Version with the addition of Cinnamon Powder sprinkled on the Kheer Bowl which are then kept to Chill & Tastes Yumm!
