Kheer (Indian Rice Pudding)

Jo Zimny


My hubby and I just love East Indian food. One of our favourite restaurants, the Taj Palace makes this and it's so good, so I had to try to make it at home. It turned out pretty darn tasty. It tends to be a bit waterier then regular rice pudding. You can double the recipe if you wish.

Fresh whipped cream is so much better than the stuff you buy in a tub or a can and so easy to make. We prefer to sweeten our whipped cream...
