It’s been almost 3 weeks that we posted something here.

It all began with our trip to Hyderabad. But even after we came back, we somehow couldn’t push ourselves to work. (Call it the hangover of the trip.)

At times it is so difficult to push yourself to do something, especially if it requires you to get out of your comfort zone.

Our trip to Hyderabad was a relaxing one. We didn’t do anything but relax. I, especially rested and rested.

It was a deviation from our routine. The daily routine where you push yourselves to do a lot of things. Getting the little one ready and sending her to school, cleaning, cooking and a lot many such things.

Your life becomes like an assembly line. Every day is the exact same day. You like doing some things, but hate doing a few others but then you do not have a choice.

And a lot many times, almost all of the things that you like, kinda get buried in all of those things that you don’t like.

And probably that is why, when you get a chance to break away from that routine, you grab it with both hands. But when you have to come back, you just don’t feel like.

That’s what happened to us.

We didn’t feel like coming back.

It took us 3 weeks and some serious discussion on what we were doing, to come back. But eventually we did and that is what matters (I guess).

  • 3/4 cup Basmati Rice
  • 1.5 – 1.75 cups Sugar
  • 1.5 ltrs Full Cream Milk plus keep a cup or two extra to adjust consistency if required
  • 100 gms Cashewnut
  • 100 gms Raisin
  • 1 tsp Ghee
  • 1 tsp Cardamom Powder


  • Wash rice till the water comes out clean. Soak it for an hour.
  • Drain all the water. Rub the rice with your fingers and break it properly.
  • Boil the milk in a cooker.
  • Once it starts boiling, reduce the heat to very low and add broken rice to the milk. Stir well.
  • Close the lid and put the weight on. Reduce the heat to the lowest.
  • Cook for 1/2 hour. Turn off the heat and let the pressure release fully on its own before opening the lid. (this is very important as the more time you keep it untouched, the more it tastes good and the color changes from white to pink)
  • Now open the lid, add sugar and mix well.
  • Cook for another 5-10 minutes on low heat. Switch of the flame. Set aside.
  • Now heat the ghee, add the raisins and cashews.
  • Fry the cashewnuts in ghee until light golden and the raisins are plumped. (if you want you can break the cashew into pieces)
  • Add the cashewnuts, raisins and cardamom powder to the kheer. Mix well.
  • Cool it to room temperature.
  • The kheer will turn thicker as it cools, add the reserved milk as needed to adjust the consistency.
  • You can eat it hot, but it tastes really good the next day.


Use full cream milk to make the kheer tastier and ensure to keep some extra full cream milk to adjust the consistency.
Avoid adding any fragrance or kesar, it tastes good without adding anything.
