Flaked Rice Pudding -Kheer


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.

  2. I love rice pudding. It's real comfort food. I usually make it the English way but I have tried it before made like this when I visited some Asian friends. I had no idea you use cream and condensed milk in it. Sounds interesting.

  4. I'm afraid I got put off rice pudding by being forced to eat it at boarding school. I relaise this one sounds pretty good and a far cry from the horror I had to eat 30 years ago but I can't get over my pathalogical loathing of it!!!
