Chawal Ki Kheer/Rice Pudding

“HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY”…to all the moms

Congratulations!! for completing (5 in my case) ‘-‘ years of motherhood.

Lets celebrate this day by making something traditional..How about Chawal Kheer? This is one of my favorite desserts. Usually, everyone likes ‘Maa k haath ka khana’. There is hardly anything that we don’t like cooked by our mom. My mom is also a great cook. But for this kheer..I like it when my dad makes it…:) He has his way of making it..let me share it with you all.

I can’t compare my kheer with his but I was so happy when I got the same texture, consistency. I didn’t mention same taste as each one of us has a different style…


You will need:

  • Rice- 1/2 cup
  • Milk-2 1/2 cups
  • Ghee(clarified butter)- 1 tblspn
  • Sugar-1/2 cup, add if you need more
  • Dry Fruits- Cashews (cut in pieces), Rasins, Almonds(cut in pieces)
  • Dedicated coconut- 1 tblspn
  • Cardamom-4-5 (powdered)



  • Wash the Rice and spread it on a towel. Once all the water is absorbed coarsely grind it.
  • In a pan take some ghee and roast the rice till it turns golden brown.
  • Simultaneously, in a heavy bottom/non stick pan start boiling the milk on medium low heat.
  • Add roasted rice, sugar to the boiling milk. Add Cashews, Raisins & Almonds. Let it boil. Stir it in between.
  • Milk will start reducing and will get thick in consistency.
  • Add Cardamom powder.
  • It will take approximately 1 hour to get ready. If the kheer/pudding is too thick you can add milk if desired.
  • Transfer it into a serving bowl. Have it warm or keep it in the refrigerator and have it later.
