I feel Kheer (rice pudding) is the queen of Indian desserts. Every household has an heirloom recipe that’s made on special occasions. And just like a queen would , the kheer is adorned with saffron and cardamom and she’s embellished with decadent & luxurious meva (dry fruits) & delicate petals of rose from her boudoir.
I’ve always had a special spot in my heart for kheer. The recipe I’ve got for you today is a twist on the traditional. This Caramel Kheer will become your favourite. It’s a super simple recipe and can easily be made from ingredients in your pantry.


1. Wash and soak 1/3 cup sona masoori rice in 1 cup water.

2. Boil 1 litre full cream milk with 1/3 cup sugar and set aside.

3. Heat a heavy bottomed pot. add 2 tbsp sugar and 1 tsp water. let it turn into a golden colour. immediately add the milk.
