After 1 hour of cooking add crushed cardamom pods,cook for half hour and add saffron strands mixed with little milk(optional).I did add a tiny bit.
Don't forget to stir in between,by now the rice will be soft and the milk will be thick,now its time to add the sugar,add it to your taste.
In another pan add ghee and saute almonds and cashews till light brown,add it to the kheer..keep boiling for another half hour.Now it is done.
You can cook it on very low heat for another hour if you want it a bit more thick and creamy.
So now your special Chawal Ka Kheer or Rice Kheer is ready,serve this hot or cold.
I have it warm in a big glass,no bowls when i have this.
Try this wonderful Easy Indian Dessert for any kind of puja or festival.Hope you like it.
