Khir (Sweet Indian Rice Pudding)

  • ¾ cup uncooked rice
  • 1/8 tsp saffron
  • 5 ½ cups low fat milk (6 ½ cups for brown rice)
  • 1 cup evaporated skim milk
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp cardamom
  • 1/8 tsp ground ginger
  • few drops rosewater

Combine the rice, saffron, and 1 1/2 cups of the milk (2 1/4 cups for brown rice) in a saucepan. Simmer, stirring frequently, until the milk is absorbed. Add the milk and the evaporated milk one cup at a time, simmering until 1 cup is absorbed before adding the next. With the last addition of milk, add the sugar, cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger. Simmer until a thick sauce has formed. Remove from the heat and beat with a whisk to smooth out the mixture a little. Beat in a few drops of rosewater.

Pour into individual serving cups and chill. If desired sprinkle a few chopped pistachios on top of each serving. Serves six.
