Prep time - under 15 mins
Cook time - under 30 mins
Serves - 3-4

Ingredients needed

Raw Rice - 3 1/2 tbsp (basmati or regular rice)
Milk - 4 cups (full fat milk)

For garnishing 

Some chopped nuts and chopped mangoes


Soak rice for 30 minutes. Drain the water completely and grind it to a coarse paste. Dilute the paste with 1/4 cup of water and keep it ready.

Blanch nuts - Soak almonds and pistachio in hot water for 15 minutes and peel the skin. Slice it into thin strips.


Boil milk first. Once milk starts boiling, reduce the flame to low and add the ground rice paste.

Cook stirring continuously in low or medium flame until the milk thickens like a porridge. (see picture below)
