  • 1 ltr full-cream milk
  • 1/4 cup basmati rice use medium or small grain size variety
  • 1/2 cup grated/ powdered jaggery adjust the quantity as per your taste
  • 2 tablespoon chopped nuts cashew nut/ almond/ pistachio
  • 1 tablespoon golden raisins
  • 1/4 teaspoon green cardamom powder


  • Wash the rice nicely and keep aside.
  • Heat milk in a heavy-bottomed pot. After the first boil, add rice, chopped dry fruits, and cardamom powder. Mix well. Cook on a low- medium flame for at least 30 minutes. Keep on stirring in between so that it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan
  • Once the kheer looks thick and creamy, switch off the gas. Allow the kheer to cool down for around 4-5 minutes and then add the grated jaggery, mix well.
  • Allow the kheer to cool down for around 4-5 minutes (not more than that) and then add the grated jaggery, mix well. Garnish with chopped dry fruits and serve. You can also keep it in the fridge for 2-3 hours and serve chilled.


  • Don't add jaggery to the boiling kheer otherwise, the milk will get curdled.
  • Also, don't add jaggery to the cold kheer, it won't get mixed properly. Just allow the kheer to cool down for 4-5 minutes after switching off the gas, and then add the jaggery.
