Rice pudding is a very popular Indian dessert that is served at religiousfestivals and as prasad- a sweet offering to the dieties. It can be made from short grain rice or flaked rice. In todays post I have made my Kheer using flaked rice and adding traditional Indian spices such as saffron, cardamom and nutmeg.
