Ingredients
  

  • ½   cup Basmati Rice
  • 8 cups Whole Milk
  • ⅓  cup Sugar
  • ¼ cup Almonds 
  • ¼ cup Desiccated Coconut
  • ¼ tsp Saffron 
  • 3 Cardamom 

Instructions
 

  • Break the soaked basmati rice with your hands.
  • Add milk and rice to a large pot. Bring to boil, about 3 minutes, and let it simmer on low heat for 40 minutes while stirring often.
  • Add sugar and keep stirring, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and let it simmer while stirring for another 8 – 10 minutes.
  • Place in serving bowl and top with slivered almonds for garnish. Let the kheer cool down to room temperature before putting it in the fridge. Serve cold.

NOTE:

  • For some, the kheer might not be as thick as you want it after 50 minutes of cooking time. I found that it naturally thickens further once you place it in the fridge, and personally, I prefer my kheer to retain some creaminess. If you want your kheer to be thicker, let it simmer for an hour or more while stirring constantly.
