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.
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.
When serving, garnish with coconut if using.
