Serves: 5-6
  • 1 liter Full Cream Milk
  • 150 grams Granulated Sugar
  • 100 grams Basmati Rice (Soaked and Dried)
  • 100 grams Khoa/Khoya/Mawa
  • Clarified Butter (Ghee)
  • 8-10 Almonds (chopped)
  • 8-10 Cashewnuts (Chopped)
  • 1 tsp. Cardamom Powder (Elaichi Powder)
  • 1-1/2 tbsp. Raisins
  1. Grind rice coarsely in a grinder jar. You can even pound rice in a mortar-pestle if you chose to do so. Ensure you grind the rice coarsely (flour consistency is not desired)
  2. Add Milk in a large pan and allow it to boil on low heat
  3. Heat 2 tbsp. Ghee in a pan and fry raisins in it. As raisins begins to puff, remove it from the pan and now add Cashewnuts and Almonds. We must lightly brown the nuts on a low heat. When the color changes lightly, we will take it off the heat.
  4. Reduce heat as Milk begins to boil. Now, add coarsely grounded rice and give a stir. Cook rice on low- medium heat. Keep stirring intermittently, to prevent formation of lumps.
  5. We have cooked rice in milk on low heat for 25 minutes. Rice is cooked completely and milk gets thickened significantly
  6. Add Khoya-Khoa(Mava) and mix until Khoa gets incorporated in the milk. For recipe of Homemade Khoa, visit our "Dessert" playlist. Mix continuously.
  7. When Kheer gets thickened and there are no lumps of Khoya in it, add Sugar. We have used 150 gms Sugar. If you prefer more sweetness in the kheer, you may increase the Sugar quantity till 180-200 grams. Mix until sugar melts completely.
  8. Now add fried Cashewnuts, Almonds and raisins and mix. Add Cardamom (Elaichi) Powder. Switch off the heat and now Kheer is ready to be served
  9. Khoya Aur Chawal Ki Kheer can be prepared for Chhath Puja. You can have this Kheer after the Kharna (second day of Chhath)
