Pistachio Rice Pudding (Kheer)

30 Nov

Kheer (Indian Rice Pudding) is the most common dessert of the Indian household. It is relatively simple to make. Unlike the westernised ways to bake the rice pudding, in this case we make by boiling. Out of all the rice puddings, this one is my favourite.

Ingredients used:

3-4 cups Full cream milk

1 tsp finely powdered Cardamom seeds

1 cup rice

1 tbsp chopped pistachio

1 cup condensed milk

1 tbsp raisins

1/2 cup sugar


Firstly, boil the rice along with the milk on a medium flame, until the rice is cooked. Give it a constant stir to ensure the milk does not burn at the bottom of the pan.

Secondly, add condensed milk, raisins, pistachios and sugar. Stir until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is thickened.

Thirdly, add cardamom, serve it either Hot or Cold. But I usually prefer cold, as it tastes divine.

Finally, garnish with pieces of pistachios.

Had to taste, t’was so tasty!!

    So glad to see you up and running on FoodBuzz! (Liked you on Facebook, too!) I just went in search of cardamom pods today to make a holiday bread with — none to be found in our small town grocery store, so I’ll have to make a trip to the big city. But, thanks to your recipe, I’ll now have another use for cardamom. Looking forward to trying this! Loved that last photo and caption, too! 🙂
