Kheer

Submitted by: LOTUS737

Introduction

Indian Rice Pudding Indian Rice Pudding
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    3/4 cup basmati rice
    3 cups milk (calculated with 1%)
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 Tbsp unsalted butter
    8 tsp splenda (or more, to taste)
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1 cup evaporated milk (optional)

Directions

Put all ingredients in a large pot (except the evaporated milk, if using), bring to a boil, then simmer over low heat for about an hour or until the milk has reduced by half. Taste it, to see if you want to add more sugar. If you want to make it even thicker, you can add in the evaporated milk (or you can use condensed milk, but that would add a lot of calories) or a tablespoon of butter.

You can serve it hot or cold, it's good either way.

You can add almonds or pistachios if you like a crunch.

If you want to give it a more 'exotic' flavor, add 1/2 teaspoon of ground cardamom powder. You can also add rose water if you'd like.

Calories are calculated for al lingredients listed on the recipie, not for optional additions. Calories are calculated for 6 servings.

Hope you like it!

  • I looooove Kheer - this was quite tasty! I added a tea ball of Jasmine tea leaves to the rice while it was cooking and it was fantastic. - 8/24/09
