Don’t be affraid of this sophisticated dish name. Kesar kheer means sweet rice pudding with various second helpings and it’s a quite easy recipe.

½ cup rice
4 cup milk
8 tbsp sugar
1 tsp saffron
1 cup pistachios, shells removed
½ cardamom

1. Soak pistachios in water for 3 hours. Wash rice, combine with 2 cups milk and mix. Cook 20-25 minutes until soft.
2. Add saffron, cardamom, sugar and the rest of milk. Cook 10 minutes more until thicken. If pudding seems to be too thick, add some milk or water.
3. Decorate with pistachios and serve hot or cold.
