Kheer (Rice Pudding)


  1. In a heavy pan, melt the ghee and fry the cinnamon and sugar until the sugar begins to caramelise. Then reduce the heat immediately.
  2. Add the rice and half of the milk.
  3. Bring to the boil, stirring constantly to avoid the milk boiling over.
  4. Reduce the heat and simmer until the rice is cooked, stirring regularly.
  5. Add the remaining milk, cardamon, sultanas, and almonds. Leave to simmer, but keep stirring to prevent the kheer from sticking to the base of the pan.
  6. When the mixture has thickened, serve hot or cold, sprinkled with nutmeg.
