Chai Kheer (Indian Rice Pudding) Notes

I created this recipe after tasting the Spice House Chai mix. This pudding is full of exotic flavor and is worth the time it takes to make it

  • 1/2 Cup basmati rice (rinse if not domestic)
  • 1/3 Cup raisins
  • 8 Cups whole milk
  • 3 teaspoons chopped raw almonds, cashews, or mix of both
  • 1/2 Cup chai mix
  • pinch of salt
  • Rose flower water to taste
  • Optional: 3 Tablespoons finely shredded unsweetened coconut for garnish
Serves / Yields

Recipe makes about 7 cups of pudding.

Preparation Instructions

In a heavy bottomed four quart pot, bring rice, milk, raisins and nuts to a gentle boil. Cook uncovered, stirring often to prevent sticking. Cook until milk is reduced and consistency has thickened to almost pudding like. Add chai mix and continue to cook at a gentle boil for another 10 minutes. The whole process takes about 1-1/2 to 2 hours.

Remove from heat. Add rose water to taste if using. Serve warm or cold.

Helpful Hints

When serving, garnish with coconut if using.
