चंर्द्प्रभा लिरिका/Chandraprabha Kshirika – Rice Pudding

Heat a nonstick pan and dry roast rice on medium heat until it gets slight brown color. Grind roasted rice coarsely. Then grind cashew nuts, dates and almonds together to a fine powder. Keep it aside. Boil 2 and 1/4 cups of water in a heavy bottomed vessel. Once the water comes to a boil, add ground rice and cook until rice is cooked completely. Then add sugar. Blend well and then add the ground dry fruits powder and a pinch of salt. Mix well and cook for 2-3 minutes. Next, add the ghee. Then add the milk and let it boil. Keep stirring in between. Finally, add cardamom powder and mix well. Allow kheer to simmer on low heat for 10 minutes until it thickens nicely. Due to the addition of dry fruits powder, kheer becomes thick. Garnish with sliced almonds and serve warm.
