Rice Kheer or Porridge….what’s in a name

My husband was diagnosed with diabetes. For a food lover that was torture. This morning he was craving for something indulgent. This is what I made for him.


3 tbsp rice (any kind)

2.5 cups milk

2 tbsp pistachios

2 tbsp almonds

2 dates

1 tbsp sugar

1 tsp clarified butter (ghee)



Soak rice, pistachios and almonds in a separate bowls for 30 minutes.

Drain the rice and roast it in ghee till it tuns golden brown.

Add milk and continue cooking the rice while using a ladle to scrape of cream from the sides of your pot.

In the meanwhile, peel the pistachios and almonds.

Once only a cup of milk remains add the sugar and mix well. The rice will also have been cooked by now.

Chop the dates and mix it in with the porridge.

Remove in a bowls and garnish with the chopped nuts.
