Zaafrani Kheer



Eid ul Adha Mubarak to all my readers!
I know I am almost a week late, but better late than never,right?
It was a really busy eid!I could not write a post even to wish eid mubarak..I am sooo sorry!
CHAOTIC is the only word that best describes how my eid was!

The dessert of the day was zaafraani kheer,a kheer with the flavour of saffron.Saffron just changes the flavour and the aroma of the normal kheer...a pinch of it is more than enough!
Aromatic Basmati rice is cooked in milk and saffron till soft and mushy and then mixed with sugar,fried in ghee along with nuts...
You can either pulse the rice before hand,to reduce the cooking time, or you can directly cook the rice in milk..

Ingredients:
1) Rice 100gms
2) Milk 1 litre
3) Sugar 1/2 cup
4) Condensed milk 3 tbsp
5) Saffron 1 pinch
6) Nuts a handful chopped
7) Ghee 3 tbsp


Method:
--Was and soak the rice,drain water!
--In a saucepan,put ric and milk,when it starts boiling put saffron and let it cook till rice is soft and mushy,keep stirring in between,scraping from the bottom!
--When the rice turns mushy using the back of the spoon,press the rice grains to the walls of the saucepan and mash.
--Add Sugar and condensed milk and mix well,turn off the flame!
--In another saucepan heat ghee,when it is warm add the chopped nuts,when it turns brown,put the cooked rice, mix well,if the consistancy(it gets thick when it turns cold) is too thick add some milk to it,simmer for 5 minutes,turn off the flame.
Enjoy!!!

Aisa kya chaotic hogaya? Why apologize,certainly its the busiest time of the year for we celebrate just 2 big festivals.
The kheer looks shaandaar in that snazzy bowl:)
