Hi, I've got a recipe for kheer, aka rice pudding, from an Indian recipe book but it does not mention any additional flavourings, which disappointed me a bit because I wanted to do something a bit different and just wanted to use up some cream. Any ideas please? Would cardamom be any good? Thank.
I believe cardamom is used for Indian rice pudding. Have never tried it though. My rice pudding is full fat milk, rind of a lemon, rind of an orange and a cinnamon stick to flavour the milk. When about to boil I add short grain rice and lower heat. I keep it simmering until rice is done and creamy then add sugar and cream. I remove the rind and cinnamon, put the rice in serving dishes and sprinkle with ground cinnamon. Or put in ramekins, sprinkle with sugar and caramelise (like creme brulee) I may try the kheer next time for a change. Have never made rice pudding with long grain rice
