Okay so now that we are done with all self praising session ha ha ha …let’s just celebrate the success with some Desi Style Kesar Chawal Ki Kheer. I’m sure we all have grown up eating mom’s special creamy and luscious Chawal Ki Kheer. In my house my mom still makes it whenever anything good happens in the family so keeping the trend alive let’s just enjoy Chawal Ki Kheer specially flavored with Saffron and loaded with nuts.
Rice Kheer is one quintessential dessert made in Indian homes from decades. It is said that any good occasion calls for some sweet and what better than home made Chawal ki kheer. This dessert is considered to be the simplest of all because of it’s easily available ingredients. Though the recipe needs quite a lot of monitoring and skills or it might just turn out to be just another bowl of milk and rice. To get that creamy texture one need to have a practice and of course correct skills and recipe.
Let’s have a quick look on how to make chawal ki Kheer. Firstly wash and soak rice in fresh water. Soak saffron strands in warm milk and keep aside.Take a thick and heavy bottomed pan and heat milk in it. As soon as the milk starts boiling, reduce the flames and let it cook till its thick and creamy. This might take more than 30 mins but do not rush as it is very important to thicken the milk. Once the milk reduces to almost half it’s quantity, add soaked saffron milk and cardamom powder and give a quick stir. Now add soaked rice and cook till the rice softens. You may now add the chopped nuts and keep stirring in regular intervals. Add sugar as per taste and cook for another few minutes till sugar dissolves completely. After adding sugar the milk might look thin a little bit but don’t worry, cook for some more minutes in low flame and turn off the flames. Add raisins and let the kheer cool. Your kesar chawal ki Kheer is ready to serve. You can serve it hot, warm or chilled as per preference.
