During this hot season, sweet foods can be our friend-in moderation.

Kheer provides an easy-to-digest dessert that is not too sweet but can ameliorate the symptoms of pitta.

Be advised that honey is a great sweetener but it is not to be cooked.

There are several options to make this dessert listed below.


Makes 4 servings

  • 2.5 cups coconut milk (from the can)
  • 2 tablespoons organic raw sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • ½ cup basmati white rice
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon cardamom
  • ¼ cup raisins (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon rose water (optional)
  • Chopped pistachios for garnish (optional)
  • Sliced almonds for garnish (optional)

Bring the coconut milk, water, and sugar to a boil in a large saucepan.

Add Basmati rice, cinnamon, and cardamom.

Simmer over low heat until the mixture thickens and the rice is tender about 25-30 minutes.

Add raisins and rose water, and simmer for another 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

Portion pudding in serving dishes.

Garnish with nuts.

Can be enjoyed warm or cooled.

For a dash more sweetness, stir in honey after cooking.
