No-one needs a dietitian to tell them that this kheer isn’t for you if you’re watching your weight! Best saved for special occasions. But you could try making a healthier version – choose skimmed milk, a little honey and dried fruit for sweetening. It's also delicious with grated carrots added during cooking.
1. Rub rice with a dab of butter.
2. Boil the rice in 2 cups of water, and mash.
3. Leave aside 2 tablespoons of milk and add the sweetened milk, rice mixture, saffron and nutmeg to the remaining milk and cook over a low heat, stirring.
4. In a separate saucepan caramelise 2 tablespoons of sugar, stir in 2 tablespoons of milk and add to the kheer (taste for sweetness).
5. Serve warm or cold, decorated with coarsely ground almonds and pistachios.
