With minimum ingredients and less effort, this rice pudding(kheer) is perfect if you want to treat yourself but too lazy to cook. Or you are occupied with loads of work and don’t have time to cook dessert for a get together. You don’t really have to stand in the kitchen to prepare rice pudding (kheer) now. Just follow this recipe and relish the pudding.

You may add any other flavour if you want. Dates can be replaced too with other dry fruits of your choice.

  1. Wash and soak rice in the water meanwhile you preheat the oven at 150 C/ 130 C fan assisted/ 300 F/ gas mark 2.
  2. Put all the ingredients in a large oven proof dish making sure it doesn’t fill more than 2/3rd of the dish.
  3. Stir the mix and keep this dish on an oven tray. Bake in the preheated oven for 1.5-2 hours or until done, stirring after every 30 minutes.
  4. Mine takes exact 1 hour 30 minutes. Time may vary according to the oven and amount of cream used. You can bake it till the desired consistency is achieved.
  5. Tips : Baking time will vary according to the amount of cream used. Sweetness of the pudding depends on how sweet your dates are. Incase your pudding gets dried after baking, just add little warm milk to loosen the consistency. This is a mild sweet pudding. If you want to make it sweeter, add more sugar while the pudding is still hot!
