Rice Kheer

This is one of the easiet dessert I have ever made. But taste wise it is worth drooling.

Milk : 1 liter
Cooked basmati rice : 1 cup
Sugar: 8 tbsp
Almond (soaked in water peeled and chopped) : 1 tbsp
Cashew nuts ( soaked in water and chopped) : 1 tbsp
Raisins (soaked in water) : 1 tbsp
Saffron a pinch
Cardamom : 2-3

1. In a deep pan, bring the milk to boil and add cooked basmati rice.
2. Keep stirring so that it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan.
3. Soak saffron in warm milk and crush them along with 1/2 tsp of sugar and add it in the pan along with sugar.
4. Once a slightly thick consistency is reached get it off the flame garnish with all the dry-fruits and powdered cardamom powder.

You can serve this kheer hot or cold.

1. I have not used ghee to fry the dry fruits to make it healthy.
2. You need to soak the raisins at least half an hour prior to cooking the kheer so that the raisins fluff up.
3. Cook on medium heat.
