Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Indian
Serves: 25
  • 1 cup basmati rice
  • 1 gallon whole milk
  • 1 and ¼ cup sugar or to taste
  • ½ tsp elaichi powder or to taste
  • few drops of rose essence
  • ½ cup chopped almonds or nuts of your choice
  • nutmeg (optional)
  1. In a big pot pour the gallon of milk. If using a steel pot, don't forget to put a little bit of water first, it will help so that the milk doesn't stick at the bottom. Wash the basmati rice thoroughly until the water is clear.
  2. Add rice, sugar to the milk. Let it boil on the high flame, stirring continuously to avoid sticking or burning. Once it is boiled for few mins on high, bring the flame down and let it boil. You will see that the rice started to get softened. and puffy. Check the sugar if needed add more.
  3. I let it cook on the gas for 20-25 mins and then transfer in to the slow cooker on a low heat for an hour to hour and a half so that I don't have to keep stirring. You still have to stir a couple of times in between. Add the elaichi powder to it and mix it.
  4. Add the chopped almonds and let it cook for a few mins more. Once done add the rose essence and give it a mix.
  5. Garnish it with additional nuts. Serve it chilled or warm as per your taste.
