Delicious Rice Pudding (kheer)

Kheer is a very popular dessert made with milk, rice and nuts that my mother prepared every Sunday for us.

Kheer

(serves 6)

6 cups milk
¼ cup long-grain Basmati rice
4 whole green cardamom pods, crushed
3 tablespoons sugar
¼ cup pistachios, unsalted and slivered

In a medium pot, add the milk, rice, and cardamom pods and boil over medium heat.  Reduce the heat, stirring occasionally for 45 minutes to an hour until the milk is reduced to 3 cups of a thick consistency.

Remove the cardamom pods and discard.  Add sugar and nuts, stir thoroughly and cool.  Pour into dessert bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate before serving.
