Rice Kheer


1/2 Gallon Whole Milk
1/2 Cup half-cooked Basmati Rice
1 tin evaporated milk1 1/2 Cup Sugar
A pinch of Kesar
A pinch of Cardamom powder
Slivered Almonds


Wash the basmati rice in water and let it soak for 1 hour. Cook untill it is half cooked. Drain water and keep aside.

In a nonstick saucepan add the milk and the evaporated milk with the kesar and let it simmer on a low flame. Bring it to a boil. Add the rice to it. Put the flame on medium. Keep stirring the milk and rice mixture to prevent it from burning. Let it boil and let the rice cook. When the rice cooks completely, add the slivered almonds, raisins and the cardamom powder. Then add the sugar and let it simmer on low flame for anotheer 5 to 10 minutes. If you wish the rice to be overcooked - just let it stay on the flame for another 15 to 20 minutes (I did it)

Kheer is ready to be served hot, warm or cold - as you like it :)
