Wednesday June 27th is Indian Rice Pudding Day. Kiran's
restaurant in Houston will be celebrating this special day by
providing each guest a complimentary Indian Rice Pudding, or Kheer,
with their meal. If your schedule won't allow you to visit Chef
Kiran at her restaurant, no worries! She was kind enough to share
her recipe with us! Enjoy!
Recipe for Kheer
½ cup Basmati rice
½ gallon whole milk
1 teaspoon (cardamom, clove, nutmeg & cinnamon) powder

Soak rice in cold water for half an hour. Boil milk in heavy
bottomed pan. Add spice mix and saffron. Add rice and boil till
