Kheer (Indian Rice Pudding)

Once you have had kheer, there is no going back. This ultimate Indian dessert is one of the most popular items on any Indian restaurant's menu. It is made on special occasions like birthdays and festivals. Long tradition is also attached with this dish. At times, newly wed brides make this as their first recipe in the new kitchen and in return receive blessings from the elders of the family.

The recipe is on Fox news website.

Kheer can be either very elaborately made when cooked for hours or it can be a simple cardamom flavored one garnished with saffron and nuts.
