This kheer recipe turns leftover plain rice into a delicious dessert!
Instead of keeping leftover rice for the next day, why not make this wonderful dessert.
Lightly butter the base of a small saucepan so that the milk will not burn. Heat the milk with the crushed cardamom pods to release the flavour and then remove them before adding the rice. Using a hand blender, blend the rice – it doesn’t need to be a smooth texture. Finally, just add the sweetened condensed milk for extra creaminess!
Serve warm or chilled.
