Rice Kheer
It rained and rained in Dallas for two days after months of scorching heat. And what else would celebrate the wonderful weather than “kheer and sweet puas”. This fragrant, creamy dessert garnished with dried fruit, nuts and cardamom -- and sometimes covered with a thin film of silver (which is beaten so fine that it is digestible) is well liked and very easy to prepare. Rice kheer otherwise known as rice pudding is especially popular across all of India and is eaten as a dessert at home as well prepared during many religious ceremonies. It is very versatile as it can be served warm or cold. This recipe uses "cooked rice". You can make this with your left over rice.

Besan Ke Laddu
Besan Ke Laddu
With the festival season just around the corner I will be posting some recipes that are usually a part of celebration in my home. This Janamashtami I prepared these besan laddus as an offering to the “Jhoolelal”.

Even though this is a simple recipe, with few steps the tough part is the stirring of the besan in the ghee continuously until it gets an even brown color and a nutty flavor. Also this recipe uses a liberal amount of ghee without which or any type of substitute the laddu will not taste the same.But since it is made of special occasions, the effort is all worth it.
