Ingredients for Kheer:

1/2 cup basmati rice, rinsed and soaked
4 cups whole milk
1/2 cup sugar (adjust to taste)
1/4 tsp cardamom powder
10-12 saffron strands (soaked in warm milk)
2 tbsp chopped nuts (almonds, cashews, pistachios)
Raisins (optional)
Rose water or kewra essence (optional)
Edible silver leaf (varak) for garnish (optional)

Cooking Method of Kheer:

  1. In a Vardaan Cookware’s Encapsulated Stainless Steel Tope, bring the soaked rice and milk to a boil over medium heat. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
  2. Once the milk starts boiling, reduce the heat to low and let the rice simmer, stirring occasionally, until it’s cooked and the mixture thickens. This might take about 30-40 minutes.
  3. Add sugar and continue to cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves completely and the kheer thickens further.
  4. Add saffron strands soaked in warm milk, cardamom powder, and chopped nuts. You can also add raisins at this point if desired.
  5. Continue to simmer the kheer for another 10-15 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld and the consistency to become creamy.
  6. Once the kheer reaches your desired thickness, remove it from heat. If using, add a few drops of rose water or kewra essence for a fragrant touch.
  7. Allow the kheer to cool slightly before serving. It will thicken a bit more as it cools.
  8. Garnish the kheer with chopped nuts and, if desired, an edible silver leaf (varak) for an elegant touch.
  9. Serve the delicious kheer warm or chilled, savoring its rich and comforting flavors.

Indulge in the traditional sweetness of kheer, a classic Indian rice pudding that delights the senses with its creamy texture and aromatic notes of saffron and cardamom.
