We Indians love our festivals , and we do know how to celebrate each and every one differently , but in style. Once again , its that time of the year. The festivities are just about to begin. A lot of sweets and snacks and traditional meals are going to be served. Exciting right?
Lets welcome this festive season with some sweets first. Todays post is about chawal ki kheer. The simplest of desserts , prepared in almost every Indian kitchen. Rice slowly cooked in milk , simmering away on a low flame. The rich creamy texture and the favor from cardamom , makes it delicious.
When I was a kid , I used to wait for the month of Shraddh ( a period during the year , we offer prayers to our ancestors ). Only for this chawal ki kheer. We being the only Brahmin family in our area back then , whoever used to do a puja , would send a plate full of prasaad ( food offered to god) to our house. And this chawal ki kheer , used to be the main part of the prasaad. So throughout Shraddh we would get to enjoy this homemade chawal ki kheer !
I know all of my readers must have made this at least once , or tasted it for sure. I would love to read about your recipe with a twist. Do write in .
