Today is the first anniversary of this blog. 🙂 One wonderful year of learning, developing,experimenting and sharing new recipes. I still remember i started this on a whim. Its a dream i had for long time and was thinking of doing it someday. 🙂 All of a sudden last year i just decided to take a plunge.
The first year has been very beautiful. Lots of challenges, very less followers , very less people who visit and put in a word of appreciation; these are the things we look for. A smile spreads when someone says they love this space. 🙂 I know this isn’t and won’t be easy to get people to visit and even maybe like the space. But would keep trying. Even one person benefited is worth the effort. 🙂
Today, I am sharing an easy kheer recipe. This one is a favorite and can be made with minimal ingredients. Best served hot or cold.
Rice: 1/2 cup
Full fat Milk: 1 litre
Sugar: 1/2 to 3/4 th cup
Cardamoms: 1 tsp
- Take 1 tbsp of sugar in a heavy bottom pan and let it caramelize on a low flame.. It would harden, no problem.
- Pout the milk, and start stirring. Allow to boil and reduce . Do this on a medium flame.
- Pressure cook the rice with 1 to 1.25 cups water. It should be soft and nicely cooked.
- Once the milk reduces to 3/4th , add sugar, cardamoms and rice and cook till desired consistency.
- Serve hot or chilled.
The first step gives you a nice pink color to kheer making it look creamy. You can skip the step and go ahead with the rest of the recipe too.
