Preparation Time : 5 mins | Cooking Time : 30 mins | Serves : 2
Recipe Category: Dessert | Recipe Cuisine: South Indian

Basmati Rice - 1/4 cup
Full Cream Boiled Milk - 1 and 1/2 litre ( I used Aavin green)
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Saffron - 3 to 4 strands
Ghee - 2 tsp
Nuts - to garnish(optional)


  1. Roast rice in 1/2 tsp ghee till nice aroma rises(dont change the color of the rice).You can grind the rice coarsely at this stage, its optional(run the mixie just once to break the rice). You can even cook the rice as such like how I did..without mashing if you like the whole grained rice.In a pressure cooker(grease it with 1/2 tsp ghee), add 1 cup of milk to the rice and pressure cook for 2 whistles in medium flame, switch off. Once pressure releases , add milk and switch on the flame again.
