Rice Kheer

Rang Barse Bheege chunarwali Rang Barse..... Holi Hain... The Festival of colors.. I just like humming this song a lot on the day of Holi. I guess its the best song ever for this festival. I think most of my readers wud agree with this.
And this festival without any sweets is incomplete. So I am posting a very simple recipe of Kheer.
Rice Kheer

100gms Basmati Rice (or any Long-grained Rice)
1tsp Cardamom Powder
1kg Milk
100gms Sugar
Mixed dry fruits (Almonds + Raisins)


  • Soak rice for 1 hour before making the kheer.
  • Take a Handi or a tambe ka lagan boil milk in it.
  • After one boil lower the flame.
  • Add in cardamom powder. Let it simmer on low flame for about 20 minutes till it reduces in quantity.
  • Now add in the soaked rice.
  • Let the rice cook in milk for about 15 minutes.
  • If it starts to thicken you can add more milk.
  • Add in sugar and dry fruits. Mix well.
  • After 5 minutes switch off the gas.
  • Serve it hot or cold.
  • Garnish with almonds flakes.
