2-3 tablespoon rava / semolina/ sooji (I have used the rava we use for making upma)
2 cups boiled milk (400 ml approx)
1.5 cups sugar or a little more if you like extra sweetness
few strands of saffron
few cashew nuts chopped
2 tablespoons ghee / clarified butter
1 tsp cardamom powder


  • In a pan, heat about 1 tablespoon ghee and roast the rava until you get a nice aroma.
  • Slowly, add in the boiled milk to this and quickly stir to avoid lump formation.
  • Add the saffron strands and mix well and let the milk boil so that the rava gets cooked.
  • The rava will slightly swell up on cooking, at this stage add the sugar and stir well.
  • The kheer will appear a little watery on adding sugar,but never mind,let the mixture boil for another 6-7 minutes and it will thicken again. Keep stirring to avoid burning or sticking to the pan.
  • Lastly add in the cashews roasted in ghee along with the cardamom powder and serve . 

As time passes, the kheer will become thick because the rava will absorb the milk,so while serving you can add some warm milk and dilute it .
