Kheer (Sweet Rice)

Sweetness for your sweethearts!! Simply cooked in milk with few nuts boosted with cardamom gives it very rich flavour and creamy texture. Generally, sweet rice is prepared for special occasions and tastes the best when served chilled.

Serves 2 (small bowls)
1/2 cup rice
4 tablespoon brown sugar (if you prefer extra sweetness then use between 1/4 to 1/2 cup of sugar)
2 tablespoon crushed nuts (any kinds: almonds/cashews/walnuts)
1 teaspoon of cardamom powder
1 tablespoon raisins(optional)
2 cups Milk
Please check (Measurements)

Process: Wash the rice thoroughly in cold water 2-3 times. Cook the rice in 1 cup of water on medium heat till all the water is absorbed by the rice.
Add 1/2 cup water again and cook on low heat with lid covered for 2-3 minutes (occasionally stirring in between to avoid sticking of the rice at the bottom). Mash the rice a little and add 2 cups of milk, sugar, cardamom, 1 tablespoon of crushed nuts, raisins(if using). Cook with lid covered between low to medium heat for 4-5 minutes(occasionally stirring in between to avoid sticking of the rice at the bottom). You will observe the milk getting thickened and creamy.
Turn off the stove and garnish with the remaining nuts. Let it cool down to room temperature, refrigerate for 30 minutes and serve chilled.
