Rice Kheer - Rice Pudding From India

Rice Kheer is a very popular dessert across India. In
South India, jaggery is widely used as a sweetener.

Jaggery is available in Indian grocery stores. You can cut jaggery into smaller pieces before using it. Sometimes, packets of jaggery pieces are also sold in Indian grocery stores.

This is my entry to the Vegan Ventures, hosted by Suganya of Tasty Palettes.

Thank you Suganya for hosting Vegan Ventures!

Rice Kheer

1 cup rice
2 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cups soy milk
3/4 cup jaggery
4 cardamom pods, seeds powdered

In a medium, thick-bottomed saucepan, combine rice and
water. Cook on low heat until the rice is done. Now
add soy milk and jaggery. Mix thoroughly and cook on
medium-low heat for about 10 minutes, stirring
in-between, until the mixture becomes thick. Turn off the heat.
Sprinkle with cardamom powder.

You can serve rice kheer garnished with raisins, almonds and cashews which are roasted in Earth Balance Soy Garden Natural Buttery Spread or Earth Balance Margarine Natural Buttery Spread
