Paayesh/Basmati Rice Pudding/Kheer [ EID MUBARAK ]

A very happy belated Eid Mubarak to all!
Hope you had a peaceful and blessed Eid-ul-fitr and enjoyed many yummy dishes and shared the love with your friends and family. =)

My heartfelt prayers go for the victims of the deadly flood in Pakistan. May all the soul who have lost their lives and those who have lost their loved ones be in peace. This Eid was definitely a sad day for those who suffered in this disaster.

Last few days were crazy busy for me. The last day of Ramadan to preparing for Eid. Cooking, cleaning, last I have a chance to sit down in peace and upload some of my Eid special dishes. 

Every EID we make a simple Payesh/Kheer dessert . Payesh is a creamy thick South Asian sweet dish, made by boiling rice or broken wheat with milk and sugar, and flavoured with cardamom, raisins, saffron, pistachios, almond. It is typically served during a meal or also consumed alone as a stand alone savory.
 Kheer can also be made using vermicelli as a base instead of grains. In India, many replace sugar with Jaggary to add sweetness and flavor to Kheer which also tastes amazing. But I did a simple Basmati Rice Pudding for this Eid.


1 cup Basmati Rice
1 1/2 litre whole 3 % milk
1 cup rice Basmati rice 
1 cup condensed milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon raisins
1 tablespoon of dry roasted Almonds nut pieces. (Roasted cashews or pistathios are also fine)
3-5 Cardamom 


  1.  Wash and drain the rice and let dry for 15-30 minutes
  2. Boil the rice in the milk on a medium flame until the rice is cooked. Also add the Cardamom seeds to the milk while boiling.
  3. Keep stirring frequently otherwise the milk may burn at the bottom of the pan.
  4.  Add the condensed milk, sugar, raisins, and nuts. Stir till the sugar dissolves and the mixture thickens. 
  5. Garnish with some almonds and raisins and serve
You can also serve Kheer chilled. I personally love it more when it's cold. But it depends on your desire.
