Rice Kheer

I thought I should make a sweet post for Eid.I miss seeing some Eid celebrations :)
    Wishing everyone Eid Mubarak!


This is a very easy recipe.


You need 
* This will make about 4 bowls*
Cooked Basmati Rice 1 small bowl
Sago balls/साबूदाना 1/4 cup or as much as you need.
Milk 1 cup (enough to cook the rice and make it soggy)
Sugar less than 3/4 cup(was more than sweet for me, you can add as much as you want)
Cardomom seeds from 2 pods, crushed
Ghee 1 tablespoon
Nuts chopped (almonds,pistachios) 1 tablespoon
Sultanas 1 tablespoon

- Cook the basmati rice in a pressure cooker( you need 1 cup rice : 2 cups water to normally cook basmati rice, but for this a little over cooked rice is fine)
- Cook the sago balls too in the cooker for about 2 whistles( add just enough water to soak the balls)
- In a heavy bottom pan, cook the rice with some milk and sugar.After the rice soaks up the milk add the sago balls( this will thicken the kheer). Add the cardamom seeds too.
- Now fry the nuts and sultanas in some ghee and add it to the kheer.
- Let it all boil for some time until the rice is a little mashed in the milk.

- Serve the kheer hot or cold :)
