750 ml Milk.

1/4 cup Rice.

1/4 cup chopped nuts.

2 tbsp. Ghee.

2 tbsp Condensed Milk.

1/4 cup Khoya/Mawa.

generous pinch Cardamom powder.

Handful Sugar.

Few drops Rose Syrup.

2 tbsp Rose Petal Jam


1. Boil the Milk and add already-soaked Rice to it. Cook them up together and on the other side we’ll roast some nuts.

2. Heat up some Ghee in a fresh pan and toast some chopped nuts (Almonds, Cashews and Pistachios etc.) till they are golden brown.

3. As the rice gets cooked in the milk, we will add a little Condensed Milk to this and let it dissolve nicely.

4. Now we add 1 cup Khoya/Mawa to this. Mix it up nicely.

5. Then add a generous pinch of Cardamon powder and a handful of Sugar. Mix them up nicely.

6. Now when it cools down it gets thicker and to get that rose flavour in this, we add Rose flavour syrup and Rose Petal Jam into one portion of the Kheer.

7. Mix them up together and you get a beautiful pink colour. Now we have a white and a pink Kheer (Gulab Kheer).

8. For serving we’ll layer this in a glass. A layer of 1 tsp.Rose Petal Jam at the bottom, then 1 tsp.

9. Rose flavour syrup, a layer of toasted nuts over that, then fill it up with the pink Rose flavour (Gulab) Kheer leaving space at the top, again a layer of toasted nuts, a small layer of this white Kheer.

10. Finally top with the Rose flavoured (Gulab) pink Kheer with a fine garnish of the leftover toasted nuts and some edible flowers on top.
