Kheer (rice pudding)
Perfect for a wintry pudding, kheer is the Indian equivalent of our rice pudding - but with an abundance of flavour. You can mix and match your own flavours by changing the nuts and dried fruit or adding in coconut
- Put the milk and the rice in a pan and bring to a boil.
- Lower the heat, simmer gently, stirring occasionally.
- When the rice is soft and the grains are staring to break up add the raisins, almonds, cashew nuts, pistachios and dried figs and stir.
- Simmer well and add the saffron. Simmer for another four minutes, add the sugar and cardamom powder and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved.
