Kheer Kamali

Kheer Kamali

You might be wondering why I have been keeping this name Kamali for many of my dishes. It is my grandmother Kamali from whom I have polished my culinary skills, she was an very, very innovative cook, especially all her sweets would be outstanding. Her Mohanthal and Kaju jamoon is our family favourite, an all time winner. ( The recipe of her Mohanthal will  be published shortly ). This kheer can be made in a jiffy, just like that. Do try and please post your valuable feedback.


Boiled milk – 10 cups

Raw rice – 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons

Condensed milk – 1 cup and 2 tablespoons

Sugar – 6 tablespoons

Cardamom powder – 2 pinches

Slightly coarsely crushed cashews and almonds ( blanch, peel and dry a little and then powder the almonds ) powder –  1 tablespoon each

To Garnish

Chopped almonds – little

Chopped cashews – little

Wash and soak the rice in enough water for 10 minutes. Drain the rice and keep it aside.
