Sweet Indian Rice

Lately, I’ve been super obsessed with Indian food. There is a little joint in town that makes the most amazing, fabulous, superb everything. Namely, the tikka masala, pollock paneer, and naan. Oh … AND THE SWEET INDIAN RICE that is served up for dessert. Mmmmm.
Mouth. Watering. Now.

I decided to try my hand at sweet indian rice (also known as kheer) and imagine this … it turned out delicious! Now it is your turn:


  • 6 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup rice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • dash nutmeg and saffron
  • 1/2 cup pistachios

This is the tricky part … you pretty much have to stand next to the stove top and pray

  • Toss the rice in a large saucepan and roast for 2-3 minutes on low heat, stir frequently
  • Add the milk and turn up the heat to medium/high
  • Bring milk to a boil, very slowly, burnt milk is no good
  • Once boiling, add sugar and stir
  • Reduce the heat and simmer/stir until the milk reduces to about half and rice is cooked, about 20-30 minutes
  • Add spices and stir
  • Garnish with pistachios after dividing into serving bowls
… Oh so many ways to follow along …
