Chaawaran ji Kheerni / Rice Pudding

BM # 35 Week 2 Day 3

For day 3 of the BM I have chosen Chawaran ji Kheerni under desserts. Chawara is rice in Sindhi language and Kheer is milk. The kheerni is similar to payasam , though we all have a slight variation to all the recipes.

This is a dessert which is normally served chilled, but some people like to have it hot too. It is normally made on festivals, but well I don’t need a excuse to make it, It is quick, delicious and without ghee , so that makes it a little quilt free, though the sugar content is slightly on the higher side. Anyway coming to the recipe...


½ cup rice, washed , soaked and cooked
1 lt full fat milk
¼ tin condensed milk / sugar to taste
½ tsp cardamom powder

Garnish
Almonds / nuts
Rose petals

Boil the milk.
Add the cooked rice and cook on slow fire till the milk is reduced to half.
Add condensed milk and cardamom powder.
The milk and rice should have blended by now, but if not, cook further till they blend.
Check the sweetness, to your taste.
One can avoid the condensed milk or sugar and add sugar free too.
Remove from fire and pour into individual cups.
Garnish with almonds and chopped rose petals.
To chill, bring it to room temperature and then place in the refrigerator.
