Kheer (Indian Rice Pudding) with Jaggery Recipe:
Our favourite Indian home-style dessert ‘the Kheer’ gets a healthy makeover by replacing sugar with Date palm Jaggery. It is also knows as Indian Rice Pudding
Kheer (indian rice pudding) with jaggery (preferably date palm jaggery) is not my invention either; it’s a traditional recipe that’s been served during the festival of “Chhat Puja” celebrated in Bihar. It is better known as ‘Rasiya’ across the region, though the recipe used during the auspicious occasion is a little different in the sense that only the new rice crop, and new palm jaggery etc is used, which anyhow is not feasible to find in our cities. I’ve used a fine and fragrant variety of rice instead of the long grain basmati, as it simply infuses with milk and blends in to give a ‘Rabri’ like consistency.
