Week 4, Day 3
Theme; Pick an Ingredient and make three courses
For the last day under the ingredient 'Rice' I have a dessert. Dessert is the perfect finale to a meal, and I made this Kesariya Badaam Kheer which is very exotic , rich and delicious. I have always loved kheers and have posted a number of them recently. Infact I shall compile them and make a page so it gets easy to access them . The badaam Kheer is made with rice and some ground almonds. The Kheer is really creamy and saffron makes it aromatic and exotic.

500 ml milk
1/4 cup rice, washed and soaked for 30 minutes
