Kheer is the most favorite Indian dessert for all occasions and is quite easy to prepare. It is simply a delicious, creamy and appetizing dish for the festivities. It can be flavored with cardamom, clove, saffron or rose water.

1/2 cup sugar
4 cardamoms
10-12 almonds (grated)
10-12 raisins

How to do:

Take a saucepan and boil some milk in it. When the milk begins to boil, add thoroughly washed rice to it. Simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the rice is cooked and the milk thickens. Now add sugar, raisins and cardamoms to it for flavor. Mix well until the sugar is well dissolved and transfer to a serving platter. Garnish with almonds and other dried fruits.
