Rice Kheer (Rice Pudding)

Everyone get smile on face when you hear “kheer” … am I right ?????

Kheer is an integral part of every Indian home . Be it any festival or an important life event or even as sacred as offering prasad in the temple and during fasting/ upvaas , kheer is one Indian dessert that fits into any special occasion menu

A spoonful of this kheer immediately transports you back to your childhood, when your mother used to make this dessert to celebrate everyday joys. Simple, delicious and packed with wonderful memories, make this today to remember those good times.
Kheer food is considered very auspicious and very tasty,
the kids like to eat and eat all the kheer. Come, let us begin cooking rice pudding.


Ingredients
1/2  cup  Basmati rice

1kg Milk  (full cream)

1 tsp  Ghee (optional)

1/2 cup Sugar

4-5 Cardomom (powdered)

4-5 Badam & cashew nuts (sliced thin pieces)

1 pinch organic orange color (optional)

Method:


1) We can make kheer in two ways
We can cook rice by roasting it in ghee or soaking it in water.
The Kheer taste delicious from both ways

2) Put the milk in boiling and keep boiling.

3) In the first way you wash the rice.
Heat the ghee in the pan and fry for 5-7 minutes on low flame.

4) In the second way, instead of roasting,
wash the rice and soak it in water for half an hour

5) After the milk is boiled, add rice or roasted rice,
stir the milk with a spoon and keep the gas slowly after the kheer is boiled,
the milk made on a slow gas is very tasty,
Keep running in 3 minutes (Kheer starts burning very quickly in the bottom).

6) When the rice becomes soft,add color or kesar and nuts..

7) Kheer takes about 1 hour to build. Now you will see rice
has become thicker.
Put sugar in kheer and cook for 2-3 minutes.
Kheer is made,
turn off the gas and mix cardamom.


8) Take out the kheer in the cup. Hot Hot Serve and Eat
Keep the kheer in the fridge
and eat cold also cold Kheer also looks delicious..

V Lounge Restuarant- A Must Visit Place in Chennai

 

Are you searching a place to hang out with friends and family??

Bored of going to same place and same food??

Do you wanna a change ??

Then you must try V LOUNGE Restaurant for sure ….

I don’t usually get impressed, but when I do,I can’t stop thinking about it.
Similar something happened to me here.

V Lounge blends Arabian and Asian influences to create a casual dining experience with a higher level of creativity. Its located in a prime location. It is easily accessible from all parts of the city due to its proximity to Egmore/Nungambakkam/Anna Salai.

At this point in the food industry, food is not the only focus factor. The service and the ambience plays a major role in deciding the future for a restaurant. Recently I visited V Lounge restaurant were they serve a variety of dishes, but their cocktails are the stars I’d say!

Its really a great place to just chill and relax with friends, the ambience was great. It was a very fun evening.. Their staffs were very friendly. I love the space here. Very nice seatings and the décor is fantastic and mighty comfy! However, it’s clearly a fire hazard since you have to squeeze around with the amount of space and hookahs around. Each and every food item I tasted was really delicious ans mouth watering… The portions are quite generous and the prices are really affordable and enough fair.

The main lounge has several Tvs, and a hookah bar which hookah man makes your hookah in front of you. He also recommends which flavoUr is their best sellers. Most places do not offer these type of suggestions, so I believe it was easier for me to get a new flavour …

Coming to the food V-Lounge started with Triple cheese grill, Mexican grill sandwich & veg Kesariya. served the variety of Italian, Chinese, Mexican and Arabian in pure vegeterian.. Yes you heard it right !!!

Grilled Triple Cheese grill – A triple layer of cheese is toasted with bread which gives a soft delicious taste.

Mexican grill sandwich : It tastes like garlic bread stuffed with paneer gave a delicious taste.

Veg Kesariya: It looks similar like Mexican grill sandwich but stuffed with paneer and broccoli delicious with hot and sweet sauces.

The main course served its Mongolian Rice and Basil Rice… Mongolian rice was really tasty a amazing combination of with rice, vegetables and noodles.. Each and everyone must try it out here!! Basil rice is tasted like fried rice giving a mild flavour of basil leaves loved it really!!

Dragon Baby Corn, Chilli Mushroom and Chilli Paneer were really masaledaar.. loved it to the core..

Spagehtti, White Pasta and Green (herbal) Pasta were the high lights for todays generation and its real lip smacking one ..

22709750_1562152370507962_1347988932_n

Chilli cheese grill :Its really a more dynamic and flavourful giving a strong chilli and cheese taste!!

These signature hookahs are one for the smoker who loves a super sweet, almost candy-like taste when they smoke. Its from natural fruits like apple and watermelon ..loved the smell and flavours very much!!

The cocktails and the mock-tails impressed me a lot . They serve all varieties of mocktails the way customer need …….. U must try all these Mojitos and mocktails for sure … Current cooler, Strawberry mojito ,Kiwi mojito, Very Berry and Pink lemonade been served to us.
