  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • A pinch of saffron strands
  • 1 tablespoon chopped nuts (almonds, cashews, and pistachios)

  • Add sugar and stir until it dissolves. Keep stirring the kheer so that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • Add cardamom powder and saffron strands to the kheer and mix well.
  • Let the kheer cook for another 5-7 minutes on low heat until it thickens and reaches the desired consistency.
  • Turn off the heat and let the kheer cool down.
