Milk Pudding

Milk Pudding

Serves 4


6 cups milk

1/4 cup raw Rice

1 cup sugar

Few pistachios, almonds and saffron strands for garnish

1 tsp cardamom powder

1. Process the raw rice in any food chopper till it is broken up in small bits.

2. Boil the rice, milk and sugar till creamy consistency.

3. Add in the cardamom and let it cool.

4. Sprinkle with chopped pistachios, chopped almonds and saffron strands and refrigerate.

When you are ready to serve, pour milk pudding into a decorative dessert dish. I used my icecream dessert cup, makes a good effect when you hand your guests the dessert.

This Indian dessert is a favorite at Diwali time or in any party. It is called DOODH PAK in Indian gujarati. Doodh is the  word for milk, and pak is term for a sweet dessert.

Rita, I’m afraid Fiesta Friday #191 is long over, but a new round of Fiesta Friday Link Party (#245) will start on Friday Oct 12 at 8 am EST. You can join then. There will be an “Add Your Link” button that once you click, it’ll bring you to a page prompting you to link the URL of the post. I hope that’s a clear explanation of how to join the party. If you have other questions, just let me know.

Such a nice Indian dessert. Great garnish with the pistachios, almonds and saffron strands which I am sure only enhanced the milk pudding.

The milk pudding or Indian Kheer does go well at any occasion – sweet and just right for dessert.
