Direction To Make

  • Wash and soak the broken rice in water for about 1/2 hour.
  • After 1/2 hour remove all the water from the rice and keep the soaked rice separate.
  • In a large pan, boil the milk over medium heat while stirring occasionally. When the milk gets hot, take 1 tablespoon of hot milk in a small bowl and add saffron and mix well, keep it aside for later use. Continue to boil the milk, stirring occasionally.
  • Meanwhile chop the almonds and cashews, remove the green cardamom skin and crush the cardamom seeds when the milk is boiling.
  • When the milk starts boiling, add soaked rice and milk powder to it and mix well.
  • Cook it on a medium flame for about 12 - 15 minutes, while occasionally stirring it well. Stir it every 1-2 minutes so that the milk does not burn from the bottom and the cream does not set to the surface but mixes in the milk.
  • Add dry fruits like raisins, almonds and cashews. Keep some to garnish. Mix well and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring every 1 - 2 minutes.
  • Add saffron milk mixture and crushed green cardamom and mix well. Continue to cook for about 6 - 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. By this time the rice becomes soft and the milk also becomes thick.
  • Add sugar and mix well. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring continuously until the sugar dissolves completely.
  • Saffron rice kheer is ready. Turn off the gas and transfer the kheer to the serving bowl. Garnish the kheer with dry fruits.
  • Either serve hot or let cool in the fridge. Kheer can be eaten hot or cold.
