Kheer~Indian Rice pudding with Strawberry Sauce.


Kheer is a very traditional Indian rice pudding that is very popular in the Gujarati community of India. This dessert is rich and creamy and traditionally  flavoured with cardamom, nutmeg , saffron and garnished with almonds. I have given this tradition Indian dessert a little western touch by serving it with a topping of homemade strawberry sauce.The Indian spices with the sweetness from the strawberry sauce makes this dessert simply delectable.

  7. What beautiful photos!

    I love kheer - I used to make so much of it when I lived in India! I've always used plant milks (because I'm vegan), and the kheer is gorgeous. I've never topped it with strawberries though, what a great British/Indian fusion! I bet it would be great with blackcurrants too.

    I've not come across pre-cooked pudding rice before, it certainly cuts the cooking time down though, by the looks of it. :-)

  29. This looks and sounds beautiful - I love the cardamom and nutmeg added to desserts. I suspect it would be very easy to create a dairy-free version of this too, as I don't eat dairy myself.
