Kheer and Coconut Burfi

Diwali is about sweets....and after Diwali is about diet....hahahahaha!

Kheer and Burfi were the first Indian sweets  we tried....and we love them!


1 teaspoon of butter
1/4 cup of basmati rice washed
4 cups of milk
1/2 cup of sugar (adjust to your taste)
1/8 cup of pistachio
1/8 cup of sliced almonds
1/8 cup of cashew
1/8 cup of golden raisins
2 cardamoms crushed
1/2 teaspoon of rose water
6 saffron strands

In a pot, heat the butter ad stir fry the rice (like doing risotto). Add the milk and all the ingredients except the rose water. Let it simmer at low temperature until the rice is cooked (about 20-30 minutes). Add the rose water, and let it cool. ENJOY!

Coconut Burfi

1 1/2 cups Milk  
2 cups Dry Grated Coconut 
3/4 cup sugar
3 crushed Cardamoms
 2 Tbsp Ghee
Pistachios for decoration

In a pan, add the coconut with the milk. Simmer it at low temperature, stirringly continuously . When the mixture starts to separate from the sides of the pan, add the sugar and cardamom. Continue stirring it until it is crumble and separates. Add the ghee, and mix it well. Place it in a glass mold previously greased with butter. Let it cool, and cut it with a sharp knife in squares. Decorate it with pistachio. ENJOY!



  1. I have never had them, but I know I would definitely love those coconut slices!

  2. Looks like a day's calories in one bite!

  3. Reading the ingredients in that kheer recipe reminded me of how much I used to love kheer in a local Indian restaurant. I will keep this recipe to try. Sounds amazing. I would probably like the buffi too as I love cardamom flavor. Nice post- thanks
