Indian Rice Pudding. Read Customer Reviews & Find Best Sellers. When I first had Indian rice pudding for dessert at an Indian restaurant, I knew I had to get a recipe for it. It's from the Food Network's Good Eats with Alton Brown.
Indian rice pudding, also known as Kheer originated in the Indian subcontinent. It's traditionally made with milk, sugar, and Basmati rice (or rice, tapioca, vermicelli, or sweet corn), and flavored with Indian spices such as cardamom and saffron. Indian rice pudding is simple to make, though it takes some loving time and care to simmer the milk and rice together until tender. You can have Indian Rice Pudding using 7 ingredients and 8 steps. Here is how you achieve it.

Add the chopped pistachios, stir well, and leave to cool. Flavoursome and filling specially after a light meal, a warming dessert for wintery cold nights. While the basil lends an earthy, comforting fragrance, the tangerine balances the dish. Reduce the sugar and replace the sugared tangerine with sliced mangoes to turn this into a tasty supper. This Indian Rice Pudding is one of my favorites desserts and it made me nostalgic about childhood days.
