3-4 tbspn Sugar or according to the sweetness you would prefer
1 litre Milk
Cardamom Almond and Raisins
A dash of Saffron

2. Drain it and keep the rice aside for sometime till it is completely dried.
3.Heat ghee in a pan. Add the rice and fry till light brown.
4. Add milk to the rice and keep stirring till the mixture thickens or reduces to 1/3rd of the orginal quantity.
5.Add sugar and mix well by partially crushing the rice.
Basmathi kheer is very creamy and has a delightful aroma, especially when seasoned with grounded cardamom, thinly sliced almond and raisins.
A dash of saffron gives the creamy dish a luminous, pale golden color.
Keep in the fridge and serve chilled. It can also be served hot.
Hope you enjoy!
