I am sooo happy!!!!!!! I have crossed some really memorable milestones during the last few days, one year anniversary, 200 posts and one more ---> crossed 100 Followers....yaayy...
Well don't we all need a reason to celebrate!....and what better reason can I have?!
To celebrate this occasion and to keep in theme with the Blogging Marathon, I chose to make a 'Nutty Brown Rice Kheer'.

I was a little worried on how it would taste...but I think I love it. I surely like the nutty texture of brown rice and this really turned out great! So I dare you to try it out and you will really find a yummy treat!
Addition of various nuts increases the nutty flavor. So decide on what nuts and how much you want to use!

I used light brown sugar and condensed milk for sweetness, but you can surely substitute them with sugar and jaggery with increased amount of milk than mentioned below. I used condensed milk to make it easy (and to finish the half can sitting in my fridge), but go ahead and make it more healthy by using splenda or other artificial sweeteners.

Ingredients:

1 cup cooked Brown rice
1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
2 tbsp brown sugar (can use belam, jaggery, gud instead)
1 tbsp golden raisins
1 tbsp mixed nuts, cashew, almonds, pista
pinch of cardamom powder
little milk, according to need
1 tbsp ghee

Method:

Heat Ghee in a kadai.
Brown the nuts and raisins, keep aside.
Heat condensed milk along with brown sugar and cardamom powder
When it starts to boil, add in the cooked brown rice.
Mix well. If it gets too thick, add milk to loosen it.
Cook for 5 min more, until everything comes together to the required consistency.
Add in the nuts and raisins.
Serve warm or chilled.
Enjoy!!!
