Kheer

Being someone who hates wastage of food, leftovers are one big headache for me, especially when they are of dishes my children are not fond of ( read dal and rice) because then there’s no one to help me finish it off. So, I usually end up making a variety of other dishes from these leftovers like kheer from rice, dal kachoris using the leftover dal etc. And they are quite good (if I may say so myself!). So today, I’m sharing the recipe for kheer made from leftover rice…

Serves: 4

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups leftover cooked rice
  • 4 cups full cream milk
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup mawa or khoya
  • 1/2 tbsp raisins
  • 14-16 nos slivered almonds
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom powder

Procedure:

  1. Coarsely grind the rice with some milk.
  2. Boil the milk in a heavy bottom pot and add the rice and sugar and continuously stir it.
  3. When mixture thickens, add khoya and nuts. Cook it on low flame.
  4. Garnish with almonds and serve hot or cold according to your choice.

  1. I can taste the deliciousness of the sweet dessert. In the winter season in New Zealand my dear mother would make rice pudding for dessert and we loved it.
