Brown Rice Kheer

Brown Rice Kheer

Ingredients :

1 cup Cooked Brown Rice
2 cups Milk
1/4 cup Jaggery (Or Brown Sugar)
1 tsp Cardamom Powder
1 tbsp Raisins
1 tbsp Chopped Cashews
1 tbsp Ghee

Method :

Pour milk in a thick bottomed pan and bring it to a boil. Lower the flame and add cooked brown rice.
On a low flame let the milk and rice mixture cook, stirring continuously, so that the mixture does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
After 5 minutes, add jaggery and keep stirring it until the milk reduces to your desired consistency.
If it becomes too thick, add more milk. Also more jaggery can be added if you want it more sweet.
In another small pan, heat ghee and add raisins and cashews. Brown the cashews and raisins.
Add the browned cashews and raisins, along with ghee to milk and rice mixture.
Mix everything and cook for another 5 minutes.
The Kheer is ready. It can be served warm or cold.

Note  : If you don’t find jaggery, an alternative is to use natural brown sugar, like turbinado or demerara sugar, which will also impart brown color to the dish.
