Quick and Easy Crock-Pot Kheer

Hello friends! Hope y’all are doing well! Today we bring to you a quick and dirty crock-pot recipe for KHEER! Kheer is a lightly spiced rice pudding that’s very popular in South Asia. For this recipe all you have to do is dump the ingredients into your crock-pot and in a short time you’ll have an amazing dessert. It’s a quick, creamy, and delicious treat. Hope y’all love it! This recipe makes enough kheer for 4 whole servings 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp ghee (unsalted butter would work but ghee is preferred for authenticity)
  • 1 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1 pinch saffron (7-8 strands)
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1 12 oz can evaporated milk (this is *KEY*)
  • 2/3 cup rice
  • 2/3 cup sugar (if you aren’t a sugar junkie like we are you can cut this to 1/2 cup or to taste)
  • 2 tbsps crushed pistachios

Directions:

  1. Turn your crock-pot (I use a 4.5 qt ) on to high and put the ghee into the pot.
  2. Once the ghee has melted, toast the cardamom and saffron in the ghee until you smell the fragrance.
  3. Dump the milk, evaporated milk,rice, and sugar into the crock-pot. If your crock-pot has a timer set it to 1.5 hours.
  4. Stir the kheer every 20-30 minutes. The kheer will be ready in 1.5 hours -2 hours (when the rice is cooked) on HIGH. (If you prefer to cook the Kheer on low, it should take about 3 hours).
  5. After the kheer is ready, it is ready to be enjoyed warm or you can refrigerate it overnight for cold kheer (PRO TIP: cold KHEER is the way to go).
  6. Garnish with crushed pistachios before serving.
