Its been real long since last posting and I owe it to my work pressure. With built in work pressure my blogging took back seat. When I was on a quick breather and was randomly checking fb posts, what caught my attention is that my blog is gonna reach 2000 likes soon.

I felt so happy viewing those insights of my page and the never ending love I am receiving from you folks. Thank you readers!!
I am truly humbled at this point and want to share a virtual sweet treat with you all.

Rice Kheer
Ingredients

Cooked Rice - 1 cup
Milk - 3 cups

Procedure:
Bring milk to boil. Once it starts boiling change your flame mode to minimum or Sim.
Add cooked rice to this mixture and allow it to cook for 2-3 mins.
Now add jaggery to it. Keep stirring continuously and make sure that rice-milk-jaggery are combined well.
Meanwhile heat ghee in a kadhai and fry all the nuts until golden brown.
Once done keep them aside and allow them to cool.
Once your kheer attains desired consistency, add nuts, salt and cardamom powder.
Give a final stir and switch off the flame.
Serve hot or cold. While serving you can drizzle honey or chocolate sauce to give that X factor to your kheer.

Alternative method:
You can make syrup of jaggery with 2 cups of water and pressure cook rice along with this syrup until 2-3 whistles. Once this mixture is cooled, add milk and mix well. Add nuts, cardamom powder and salt to this kheer and serve.

My Notes:
Instead of using cooked rice, you can add uncooked rice to boiling milk and cook. This consumes lot of time but tastes good.
Adding salt enhances flavor of your kheer.
If you add roasted nuts directly to your kheer right after roasting them, milk might get curdled.
Leave your kheer little runny. As it cools it becomes thick.
