Kesar Dry Fruit Kheer{The Indian Creamy Rice Pudding}

The famous Indian Rice Pudding or a lovingly known as cheer is an easy one pot dessert. 3 basic ingredients make a delicious sweet apt for any occasion.

My Kesar Dry Fruit Kheer takes it up one more level with the aromatic Saffron and the goodness of dry fruits.


Directions to make Kesar Dry Fruit Kheer-

Makes 6 katori as in pics.


5 tbsp rice(preferably kheer rice that are broken or small)

500 ml whole milk

Sugar as per taste(around 7 tbsp)

A pinch of saffron dissolved in 2tbsp warm milk

Dry fruits chopped(I have used almonds, cashew and raisins)


In a heavy bottom pan add whole milk and rice.

Let it come to boil and cook until the rice is cooked and milk is reduced to almost half. You may need to turn & mix the milk in between to avoid burning. (This will take around 20 mins on medium to low flame).

Now add the sugar, dry fruits and saffron milk.

Mix well and cook for another 10 mins.

Kheer is ready.

Now chill in the fridge before serving. (It can also be consumed warm)



Can’t make it now! Pin it here for later ??
